Sevilla Woman Killed In Another Case Of Gender Violence
The National Police arrested a man after a tragic murder took place in the early hours of Thursday 27, on Corral de los Barquilleros street, in the Pino Montano neighbourhood of Sevilla city, when a 43-year-old man killed his 53-year-old aunt, in what appears to have been a drunken argument where, after strangling his aunt, he sent a Whatsapp message to his daughter with a photo of the body, saying, “Look what I just did”.
The victim, known as Cuqui, was widowed a few years ago, and according to neighborhood sources, the victim of the crime used a wheelchair to move around although not completely disabled, and lived alone in her home after her husband died.
Upon receiving her father’s message the girl called the police, who went immediately to Cuqui’s home, on the ground floor, and after climbing in one of the windows, officers found her dead body inside, but the man was not there, and a quick visit to his nearby home resulted in his handing himself in peacefully, and being arrested.
It is known that the detained man was also a resident of Pino Montano, and a relative of the woman’s deceased husband, who had been seeing her for several days, and according to neighbours, the two of them had been seen in a local bar on Wednesday, with his car also spotted parked outside the bar, as reported by elmira.es.
