This paper presents the research results on femicides carried out in Argentina during the period 2008-2009 (Fernández et al., 2009). We emphasize one of the main outcomes: suicide-homicide tension linked to inconsistencies in keeping case records. From this point, we question how femicides can be covered up, among patriarchy, ferociousness and State abandonment.
