The crime of the urban police continues to arouse a lot of interest since the Netflix platform brought to light the fiction The Body on Fire. The controversial case has once again brought into play the figure of Rosa Peral and Albert López, lovers and former colleagues in the Urban Police, who murdered Pedro Rodríguez in 2017.
The former couple was sentenced by the court to be in prison for between 15-20 years. But what led them to carry out this macabre murder? The lawyer for the victim’s family has broken his silence and has spoken about the reasons that prompted Peral and López to make that decision.

“For me, two factors occurred in unison that caused Pedro to end up losing his life at the hands of the two convicted men,” the lawyer begins by explaining. “An important factor is that Rosa’s fellow inmate said that the former urban guard had told Pedro that Albert had been the cause of the mantero’s death that occurred in Montjuïc,” he adds.
This fact, for which López was investigated, could have been the first trigger for the crime that took place later. “It is very possible, I think it is certain, that in a comment to confront people, he told Pedro that the cause of that event was Albert,” says the lawyer.

«On the other hand, it becomes evident in the trial that the relationship between Rosa and Pedro was not on the right track. Mr. Pedro, in view of the parallel life that Rosa was leading, had decided to end the relationship,” he comments on the program Let’s see. «These two elements come together and it becomes necessary, in quotes, for Albert to help eliminate the person who, if the relationship is broken, can say in the environment of the Urban Guard that he knows who was the cause of the mantero’s death. “, it states.
But, far from leaving it there, the lawyer points out a third reason that could explain the movements of the accused and that would be related to the trial known as the ‘revenge porn’ trial. «At that time, the trial of Mrs. Rosa Peral against a superior was being held, which consisted of the fact that a superior of Rosa had published and disseminated an intimate photo of the former police officer. In that trial, the only person who was on Rosa’s side was Pedro,” she says. Some words with which she makes it clear that, if Pedro Rodríguez had broken up with her, Peral would have had to face it alone.
