Diego Lagomarsino is the man who gave Nisman the gun that ended the proescutor's life. Lagomarsino has been charged with illegally letting Nisman borrow the weapon. He says the prosecutor was fearing for his life and didn't trust his security team and that is why he asked to borrow the weapon. ALEJANDRO PAGNI/AFP/Getty Images
Prosecutor Viviana Fein is the lead investigator into Nisman's death. She was the one who revealed that there was no gunpowder residue on Nisman's hands, and that Nisman had drafted an arrest warrant for the country's President, which was found in a trash can. STR/AFP/Getty Images
