Alcàsser’s crimes happened 28 years ago and caused a deep commotion in Spain

DNA tests confirmed that bones found recently belong to one of the teenagers murdered in the infamous Alcàsser case

Alcàsser, November 13, 1992. Three young people were kidnapped, raped, tortured and murdered, in a crime with outlines, considered by many to be strangers. The media event involved the Spanish people in the 1990s.

Antonia Gómez, Desireé Hernández and Miriam García, teenagers between the ages of 14 and 15, disappeared around Alcàsser, in the municipality of the Valencian Community in Spain.

The three girls were on their way to the Coolor nightclub in the nearby town of Picassent when, according to official information, halfway there they hitchhiked and got into a white Opel Corsa car occupied by at least two men. They never came home again.

After an unprecedented search campaign was set up on January 27, 1993, three months after the disappearance, two beekeepers found the bodies of the young women in a place known as La Romana, about 50 kilometers from the city of Valencia, near the swamp of Tous. The bodies, already in an advanced state of decomposition, showed signs of sexual assault and torture.

Years later, the case returned to the spotlight with the premiere, on June 14, 2019, of the Netflix series “El Caso Alcàsser”. The documentary, divided into five parts, analyzes the investigation process, the different theories that emerged and the role of the press in covering the episode, which has become one of the most popular police cases in Spain.
