Major parties, a massive fight, two brothers and a university student… What is known about the death of a young man in Íllora – 20minutos.es

-

Íllora, a small town in the west of Granada, has become news this August for a dramatic crime. It happened during the main festivals of the town, of about 10,000 inhabitants, and ended with the violent death of a young man from the municipality. The tragedy has provoked the indignation of the neighbors and there have been some altercations. This is what is known at the moment of a case in which the mayor, Antonio Salazar, has asked for “calm” and that “the full weight of the law fall” on those responsible. Who was the victim? Juan Castro was 19 years old. He was a student at the University of Almería and had a girlfriend, with whom he was at the time of the attack. Those who know him emphasize that he was a good student and a good person. He has not died, they have killed him. How sad at 19 years old and in seconds his life has been taken away. A friend of Íllora tells me that he was a boy better than bread, he never messed with anyone, an exemplary student and much loved in the town. DEP https://t.co/rIo8mTXU0e— Maria Angeles/❤🏳️‍🌈 (@kafiat) August 15, 2022 What happened? Shortly before 6:40 a.m. on Monday, several people warned that a boy had been the victim of an assault. This took place after a massive fight at the fairgrounds. Juan fled but was caught up later in the vicinity of Diego de Siloé street. There he was beaten and received a push that knocked him to the ground, causing him to hit his head on a curb. Members of the Civil Guard, the Local Police and the 061 Health Emergency Company were mobilized, whose doctors transferred the wounded man to the Granada Hospital . He entered the Traumatology area but died shortly after.What is known about the aggressors?The armed institute activated the judicial protocol and a police device was deployed in the municipality. On the same Monday, two men were identified as alleged perpetrators of the deadly attack but had fled. At 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, one of them turned himself in at the Granada Civil Guard Command. He will remain there while the investigative steps are completed and until he is brought before the judicial authority. The 23-year-old is considered the alleged perpetrator. The second fugitive would be his brother and presumably would have helped him to flee. Civil Guard sources have indicated that the investigation will now focus on the alleged perpetrator of the murder, regardless of the possible responsibilities that may also be attributed later to his brother. How has the town reacted? On Monday afternoon about 2,500 neighbors gathered to show their rejection of the deadly attack and to ask for justice. Later, a group went to five houses of relatives of the suspects and assaulted them. They also wrecked four cars. Sources consulted in the municipality by Europa Press have specified that the residents want the members of this clan, who are not from Íllora, “out of town”, although they “settled” in the town some time ago, whom they would have “frightened “. The Íllora City Council will ask the court to deprive the detainee of residence for the death of Juan Castro and attributes numerous altercations and attacks to his environment in recent years. The Civil Guard maintains a permanent device to prevent the recurrence of this type of incident and the mayor, Antonio Salazar, has asked for “calm”. He has appealed for calm and has asked that the security forces and bodies and justice be allowed to work while the investigation of the event is completed. The City Council suspended the festivities and decreed three days of official mourning. Complaint from the Gypsy Society For its part, both the Federation of Gypsy Women’s Associations (Fakali) and the Spanish Gypsy Society have filed complaints for the assaults on five houses and four vehicles suffered by relatives of the detainee. Specifically, this last group considers the alderman “promoter and instigator” of the assaults registered in the town against several gypsy families and has even requested his arrest. Last goodbye to the victim The residents of Íllora have gathered around the Church of the Encarnación to say goodbye to the deceased 19-year-old. Minutes before 8:00 p.m., a large number of people packed both the temple and its surroundings for the funeral of this young man, accompanied family and friends and said their last goodbye to the victim. After the religious service, the applause both inside and outside the church have broken the silence and the coffin has been carried on the shoulders of a group of friends of the victim to drive it to the local cemetery, where he will be buried.
