The telephone communications of Esther Lopez's principal were tapped by the judge. However, the eavesdropping has not provided any information to help clarify the circumstances surrounding Esther Lopez's disappearance and death six months ago. Nor have the roles played by Oscar SM beyond his own statement that placed them at the intersection of El Romeral urbanization on January 13. According to the Civil Guard, the "punctures" have revealed two facts. One, that the 38 year-old travel agent knew his phone was tapped (later, they discovered that he had 2), and two, that it exercises "strict control” over communications between its trusted people. The three members of his nuclear family were essentially the culprits. The other is that he has always been calm when discussing the matter with his family and has perhaps released some pearls to the 'listeners.
Oscar responds to his sister's call to tell him the "good news" that Esther's fibers were not found in the family chalet. To find. If they can't find it then I'm going to leave." His interlocutor refers to the fact that court has commented on the fact that the case is "very similar to that of Dolores Wanninkhof". Oscar continues: "Yes, it's like that. They are trying to find a scapegoat and it angers me, because they aren't focusing on where they need to be." He clinches his lips: "They are looking for a scapegoat, searching, searching until damn... and they're releasing all calfs."
Oscar S. uses instant messaging apps such as Whatsapp and two mobile phones to escape investigators. However, the Civil Guard eventually seized the first. He gives precise instructions to his circle of trusted people, telling them to avoid discussing the facts under investigation. They should also limit themselves to saying Oscar is fine but not more. Researchers believe he suspects that his communications might be under surveillance and forces him to participate in his most intimate environment in order to avoid any conversations about the investigated facts." This is highlighted in the wiretaps reports.
The Civil Guard highlights one conversation about the case that he had with his mother, after he testified before the Esther Lopez case investigating magistrate on April 25. His mother is curious about how Esther has done during interrogation. He "shows himself satisfied with her" and the fact that he's still free. He also expressed his frustration with those who protested at the Angustias Courts to support Esther's family.
After testifying before the investigating judge, the investigator said that everything had gone as planned.
In particular, the communication at 2:43.18 p.m. was the one in which the suspect in investigation told his mother: "Everything went well, as it should, since I haven't done anything." He also attacked Traspinedo residents who protested in the streets and the private prosecution lawyer because he asked that he be placed into preventive detention with bail of 60,000 euros. The magistrate denied the request.
Other conversations with his family reveal details about the suspect's past since the investigation opened. He has not left his home since that time, other than to go to work or to be with his daughter and partner. She called her mother on Mother's Day to congratulate her. At one point, she admitted to being afraid of her leaving. However, she didn't mention her reasons. The businessman was already being harassed: his Valladolid travel agency was covered with posters depicting Esther Lopez. Another day, incriminating graffiti was found on Traspinedo's family chalet. This happened shortly after the Civil Guard would have searched thoroughly the property for clues that would have allowed Esther Lopez to be found inside the summer house. Researchers still believe that Esther Lopez was not alone that fateful morning.
