The family of dead Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman said Thursday that independent forensic tests show that he was murdered.

In January, Nisman, the lead investigator into the 1994 attack on the AMIA Jewish community center in Buenos Aires accused Argentinian President Cristina Fernandez of seeking to take the focus off the Iranian suspects in the case in order to get access to Tehran's oil.

Nisman was found dead in a pool of blood in his apartment days later, just before he was to testify before Congress about the allegations. The scandal sparked a blizzard of conspiracy theories and a political crisis that has dented the government's credibility.
