This Monday, a resident of Tarancón (Cuenca) has been murdered at her home in what is a new case of sexist violence, as confirmed by sources from the Government Delegation in Castilla-La Mancha, after her lifeless body was found at first time today. The delegate of the Government of Spain in the region, Francisco Tierraseca, has lamented that there has been “a new case of a sexist crime. We can confirm this since the alleged perpetrator is the victim’s partner” who has already been arrested while the Divine Guard is investigating the details of the case. Tierraseca has condemned “roundly the crime against a woman for the simple fact of being one”.
Confirmed as a sexist murder the fatal outrage of a woman in Almonacid de Toledo
The City Council has decreed three days of official mourning for this sexist murder, according to its mayor, José López Carrizo, who has also reported that the alleged murderer has appeared at the Civil Guard offices and has confessed “the horror that had committed”. The residents of Tarancón are dismayed by what happened early this Monday morning
The aggressor had had a restraining order on the murdered woman, although this measure was currently inactive due to an acquittal by the Cuenca Criminal Courts. As Europa Press has learned, the deceased had said order until April 1, the date on which these measures were lifted after the now alleged perpetrator of her death was acquitted in a previous trial.
The victim is a woman in her 40s, with three minor children, according to sources from the Tarancon City Council consulted by elDiarioclm.es, who also point out that she was a worker of the municipal employment plan. As reported by the 112 Emergency Service in the region, the local police have requested psychological assistance for the relatives.
The three youngest children, ages 2, 3 and 7, are being cared for at the ‘San Isidro’ School of Early Childhood Education and are students of the CEIP ‘Gloria Fuertes’. In addition, relatives of the victim have appeared at the home and have needed medical and psychological care upon hearing the sad news. As sources from the 112 Emergency Service have confirmed, a psychologist and a social worker have come to the scene.
This is the second sexist murder in the province and the fourth in Castilla-La Mancha so far this year. With this, there are already 13 women murdered so far this year at the hands of their partner or former partner, according to data from the Ministry of Equality.
The reactions have been almost immediate. The Minister of Equality and spokesperson for the Government of Castilla-La Mancha, Blanca Fernández, has condemned this new sexist crime:
An “especially dramatic” year
“This year is being especially dramatic for Castilla-La Mancha in terms of gender-based violence”, lamented the regional secretary for Women and LGTBI Policies of the CCOO of Castilla-La Mancha, Rosario Martínez, who has transferred “the most absolute rejection and condemnation”, on behalf of the union. “With this horrible crime that shocks the province of Cuenca and the region again, there are already four women murdered in Castilla-La Mancha so far this year: two in the province of Cuenca and two in Toledo” and He assures that they are “dramatic figures that show the harshest and most visible face of gender violence, that of sexist murders, but not the only one, because we cannot forget that sexist violence has multiple expressions,” he denounces.
