MADRID/SANTANDER, 8 Feb. (EUROPA PRESS) -
The investigation by the Civil Guard indicates that the two minor brothers from Castro Urdiales (Cantabria) killed their mother by stabbing her several times and then tried to simulate a kidnapping as an alibi, for which they called their grandmother, as they have informed Europa Press research sources.
The victim, a 48-year-old woman from Castro Urdiales, was found gagged on the floor of the back seat of her car and with several garbage bags partially covering her body. She had several stab wounds and the investigation, preliminarily, indicates that her death was caused by her being stabbed in the neck.
There is also evidence of a family dispute before these events, although the investigation has yet to determine its possible direct relationship with the death of this woman, according to the aforementioned sources.
To find the whereabouts in a park after two in the morning of the two minors, who come from Eastern Europe and are adopted children of the victim, a phone call they made to their grandmother was key, in which the Investigators suspect that it was an attempt to simulate a kidnapping as an alibi for the homicide. The father was away from Cantabria for work reasons.
The lifeless body of the mother appeared around 8:45 p.m. on Wednesday with signs of violence and gagged inside a car on Monte Cerredo de Castro street. From the first moment, a search device was deployed to locate the two minors, which occurred after two in the morning in the town's Cotolino Park.
The Civil Guard detained the eldest of them, as if they were being investigated for what happened, since the youngest is not responsible for being under fourteen years old. Both were placed at the disposal of the Cantabria Juvenile Prosecutor's Office and for now there are no previous complaints that were related to what happened.
The Government delegate in Cantabria, Eugenia Gómez de Diego, has recognized it as "a devastating blow" for the autonomous community. And regarding the arrest of one of the alleged perpetrators, aged 15, and the identification of the other, only 13 - and who cannot be held accountable as he is under fourteen - he pointed out that "it confronts us with the harsh reality of the involvement of minors in acts of extreme gravity".
This was stated by Gómez de Diego this Thursday in an institutional statement at the headquarters of the Government Delegation, in Santander, in which she was accompanied by the lieutenant colonel of the Civil Guard, Juan Martínez Ros.
In her appearance, the representative of the Government of Spain in Cantabria expressed her deepest condolences to the family and friends of the victim, 48 years old and a resident of Castro Urdiales, who appeared with signs of violence and gagged inside a vehicle, " in this very difficult moment."
"The loss of a life in this way is a devastating blow to the community and we come together in solidarity to offer our support in these difficult times," he said.
"At this time, our thoughts are with the victim's family, but also with the young people involved, who, regardless of their actions, need support and guidance to face the consequences of their actions," added Gómez de Diego.
For now, the 13-year-old boy has been admitted to a child protection center, at the direction of the Juvenile Prosecutor's Office, at whose disposal is his 15-year-old brother, who is considered the alleged perpetrator of the events and who would be attributable. , unlike the previous one.
