Police are investigating whether a man has killed his three-year-old daughter at his home in Madrid

The National Police have found a three-year-old minor and her 47-year-old father dead in a home in the central district of Madrid. According to police sources, the main hypothesis is that the man had killed the minor and then took his own life.

The mother was the one who gave the warning this Thursday around a quarter past nine at night, since she saw light in the house but could not locate the father. According to the first investigations, the parents are separated.

The National Police agents went to the place, located at number 91 Amparo street, near the Lavapiés Metro, and found the body of the father, a 47-year-old man, and of the 3-year-old girl.

Citizen Security agents, the Group of Violent Crimes of the Scientific Police and Homicides have traveled to the scene to proceed with the investigation.

Likewise, the team of psychologists from Summa 112 has treated the mother of the deceased minor and the grandmother, who were at the scene, as reported by Emergencias Madrid.

The number of minors killed by vicarious violence this year stands at seven (44 since 2013, when data began to be collected).

Another 28 minors have been orphaned by sexist crimes during 2021 (334 since 2013).
