The calligraphic expertise that complicates the doctor Leopoldo Luque in the case investigating the death of Diego Maradona is overwhelming: “It does not correspond to the authorship of who in life was Mr. Diego Armando MARADONA all of the original handwritten inscriptions imposed on the individualized documents “.
The analysis, to which he had access Clarion, was made by two official calligraphic experts of the Buenos Aires Supreme Court of Justice and confirms that Luque forged Maradona’s signature to request a medical history on September 1, almost three months before the death of the top soccer idol.
For the experts Mara Castiglia and Liliana Benegas, the signatures found on the sheet through which the Olivos Clinic requests the report, and two others in which scribbles were added, “respond to the typology that defines the forgery by freehand imitation of autographs who in life was Diego Armando Maradona “.
To reach this conclusion, the specialists compared the signatures found on those three sheets that the police took from the raid on Luque’s house on Calle 30 de Septiembre al 1800, in Adrogué, with different official documents signed by Diego Maradona and his daughters Dalma and Giannina who were contributed by the Federal Police.
The report highlights that “the differences are fundamentally represented in the lack of pregnant automaticity, revealed by the absence of naturalness and spontaneity, resulting from the attempt to replicate the authentic model “.
Maradona’s signature is perhaps one of the most forged in history. It is reproduced in stickers, tattoos, it has been immortalized in T-shirts and countless items that are marketed with symbols of the ten and that on more than one occasion were denounced by Maradona himself because they had not registered by him.
The key aspects in calligraphic analysis
The specialists emphasize that they are observed “Partial and added scribing hardnesses that are contrary to the characteristics of the authentic model in the same sectors. “They specifically refer to a” final feature and signature gesture “of the signature that Luque rehearses on one of the seized sheets, and that does not appear in any of Maradona’s signatures in official documents.
They also warn that the signatures on the papers found in Adrogué’s house “are notably larger with openly disparate proportions.”
They are investigating whether Dr. Leopoldo Luque sought to forge Diego Maradona’s signature.
The letter “M” at the beginning is another of the central aspects of the analysis. For the experts, the one rehearsed by Luque has “disproportionate attack trait and dissimilar graph-spatial location “.
In relation to the central body of the firm, they specify that “it is verified graphical divergence punctually in the behavior, height and distance intergram of its components “.

Another key element in the comparison is the absence of a letter “D” tilted to the right that Maradona made in his signatures and that is observed in all the documents provided by the Federal Police.
“The absence of the figure that characterizes most of the indubitants referred to as a type ‘d’ with greater height and movement to the right, merits as an automatism of Mr. Maradona and not captured by the forger“.
The result of the calligraphic expertise is already in the hands of the San Isidro prosecutors who carry out the case for investigation of possible wrongful death of Maradona.
The key detail that sources of the investigation confirmed to Clarín is that this document with that signature was used and presented digitally (the one found is the original copy) and that step constitutes a crime for “use of adulterated private document.” The imputation would fall directly on Luque.
