In the purest style of killer movies. Agents of the National Police Conduct Analysis Brigade studied the account of Alejandra Garcia to try to establish a psychological profile of the assailants who allegedly killed little Dominique in Elda on the afternoon of August 30, 2017. However, the incongruities in the story they ended up turning it into the prime suspect.
The investigators subjected the story of Alejandra, accused of the crime and sentimental partner of the father of the murdered child, to a technique called Vera method. The defendant claimed that, while she and little Dominique were at home, they were attacked by assailants with their faces hidden by motorcycle helmets, they had tried to sexually assault them and murdered the child. Officials from the Behavior Analysis Brigade applied the aforementioned method to review this report taking four parameters: the victim, the crime scene, the reconstruction of the facts and the alleged perpetrator. By combining the information received, the investigators reached two mutually contradictory conclusions: the assault was planned and there had been no preparation. Inconsistencies that led them to the conclusion that the now accused was simulating the aggression and had a direct implication in the events.
“In the defendant’s account there was a permanent interaction with the aggressors. There was kicking, screaming, dragging on the ground »said one of the policemen. These circumstances did not square with the fact that the child had a mental age of three years and, in a situation of this type, the normal thing would have been that “I would have started yelling or had a tantrum. Something had to be heard». The neighbors assured that that afternoon in the building there was “absolute silence” Therefore, the conclusions pointed to a “surprise approach” in which the victim had no response capacity.
This same unit analyzed a anonymous letter that the mother of the accused received months after the crime and with which Alejandra would have dealt dand divert the attention of the police fearing that she was considered suspicious. The letter was from a person who claimed that he had heard two men of South American origin say that the assault had gotten out of hand. The researchers’ conclusions are that the letter “was a simulation.” “It seemed that he wanted to collaborate with the investigation but nothing is contributed in it and there are inconsistencies and inaccuracies”explained the official. One piece of information that caught the attention of the researchers is that it contained spelling mistakes written on purpose “to disguise your academic level”, errors that contrasted with the use of quotation marks for textual citations or leaving spaces at the beginning of the periods and apart. And the most revealing fact was that the sender knew the address of Alejandra’s parents, something that had never appeared in the press.
The defendant has admitted to being the author of those letters, but not one notes with strange symbols that appeared in the home before the crime.
The Prosecutor’s Office maintains that with them the defendant tried to pretend that someone was watching them. His sentimental partner and foster father of the murdered child came to consult with a friend from the Local Police what its meaning could be, since that summer they received up to three of those mysterious notes. On one of them, the word “no” was written. Calligraphic experts from the National Police examined that note to see if they could attribute it to the accused. Given the brevity of that text, it was impossible for them to extract anything conclusive to establish its authorship. However, the lines of the “n” and the “o” had such a characteristic shape that from the outset, and despite the insufficient samples, it could not be categorically ruled out that it was not, they were specified in court.
The mother’s postponed grief for the loss of her child
A psychiatrist and a psychologist yesterday detailed in court the Aftermath that Dominique’s murder had caused on the mind of her foster mother, Penélope Martínez. A state of chronic depression that has prevented him from working, with several casualties, emotional blockage and social isolation. The experts stressed that one of the main problems was that, since the murder, the duel hadn’t really started. It is a postponed duel, in which specialists are concerned about the effect that the end of the trial will have on his psyche, the moment when Penelope will really face her loss. “Although Dominique was not his biological son, affections have nothing to do with blood or biological load,” explained the psychiatrist. The psychologist assured that in November 2018, six months after Alejandra García’s arrest for the murder, “Penelope was emotionally exhausted.” His accusation imputes Alejandra, in addition to the crime, a crime of mental injuries.
