According to the police investigation, the arrested man repeatedly hit and stabbed his victim. He also used the young man’s open profile on a social network to post a photo in which he appeared naked and unconscious on the floor of his home, and requested a ransom of 30,000 euros from the family with the intention of diverting the focus of the investigation. investigation. The 81-year-old woman, whose degree of participation in the events is still being investigated, notified the emergency services and was later surprised while she was cleaning the place where everything had happened. The victim died at the Alicante General Hospital hours later. The alleged perpetrator of the death was imprisoned and his mother has been released with charges. Both are being investigated for murder, kidnapping and a crime against privacy, according to police sources.
It all started, according to the investigation data, because the deceased robbed the detainee of money, documentation and the keys to his mother’s home. The two men, both of Algerian origin, argued in the street on several occasions, according to the statements of several witnesses, but the young man refused to return the belongings. According to the account of the events, on the night of September 6, the arrested person visited the home that the victim shared with two other people, who were present at that time, and then left.

He simulated a kidnapping and asked for 30,000 euros in ransom from the injured man’s family, who immediately notified the Algerian consulate in Alicante, a province where Spain’s largest community of citizens of the North African country lives. From the consulate they alerted the National Police of the report of an alleged kidnapping. But neither the identity nor the address of the victim was known.
The diversion of attention
In the afternoon, although this information is still under investigation, the aggressor called his mother to come to the home of the young man, who was still unconscious. The octogenarian was the one who notified, according to police sources, the emergency services, who sent a Samur team. The medical personnel are received by mother and son, who claim that they have found the boy just as he is, without any reaction. He was lying on the ground unconscious and with bruises and stab wounds all over his body. During the assistance, the doctors notify the police, since it seems evident that he has been attacked. Mother and son then told their version of the events, to, in the opinion of investigators, divert attention. That the victim, a friend of his, had robbed him the day before along with five other individuals, but that he repented and had called him to return his things. But two people who were there at that time and whom he accused of the attacks, had prevented him from recovering them. He even gave the name of one of them. The paramedics took the injured young man to the hospital, where he died hours later. According to the autopsy, the cause of death is severe trauma caused by a blow to the head with a blunt object. The body had cuts on the soles of its feet and its liver was damaged.
The agents who went to the house went to the headquarters of the Judicial Police to open proceedings. At that time, the beating was not related to the kidnapping reported by the consulate, but, in that period of time, two Algerian citizens had reported to the Police Station that they had seen the photo of a friend of theirs on Facebook and that he seemed to be the victim of a kidnapping. The connection between both cases is established. Several police units returned to the victim’s home and found the octogenarian alone and cleaning the blood from the floor with the same mop used in the photo on the social network. They arrested her and began looking for her son, who was arrested on the street in just an hour. The agents activated the violent crime protocol, coordinated with the court to authorize the entry and search of the home and summoned the Scientific Police.
