three teenaged girls are abducted...
who were kidnapped, raped, tortured and murdered after hitchhiking to visit a nightclub in the nearby town of Picassent on 13 Nov 1992.
The case became notorious in Spain because of the brutality of the crimes, the highly-criticised police investigation and the resulting media coverage.
The autopsies revealed seven hairs with seven distinct DNA profiles, none belonging to any of the girls or their alleged murderers, Antonio Anglés and Miguel Ricart. Of the two, Ricart was the only one jailed; the whereabouts of Anglés, still one of Interpol's most wanted criminals, is unknown.
Miguel Ricart was the only person charged regarding the event. According to Ricart's statement, he and Antonio Anglés picked up the girls at a gas station. When they drove past the nightclub, the girls began to scream, and Anglés turned around and hit the girls in the mouth with his gun, knocking out some of their teeth.
They headed to an abandoned house near a place known as La Romana, in a very isolated and mountainous area close to the Tous dam. They tied up the girls and raped two of them vaginally and anally, including with various objects. The men then left and went to a nearby town in order to get some food. They returned two hours later and proceeded to rape and torture the third girl.
They continued to torture all three girls until they fell asleep. When they awoke to hear the girls screaming and crying the following day, the men forced the girls to walk to a pit they had dug, taking the opportunity to beat and torture them more before shooting them and throwing them into a makeshift grave.
According to the autopsy, Hernández suffered a traumatic amputation of the right nipple and areola with a sharp object, and was then stabbed twice in the back. The other girls were beaten with sticks and stones, before finally being shot and buried. García's corpse displayed vaginal wounds caused by an object with sharp edges. The killers picked up spent shell casings and cleaned their car.
Many theories have come out in the case, including satanic involvement and the possibility that they were murdered to make a snuff film, possibly by an international cabal of wealthy investors. No evidence exists to substantiate these theories.
