Lorena Dacuña, the woman found dead this Monday at her home in La Calzada, in Gijón, with two stab wounds in the stomach, he died for several minutes before dying, according to the first autopsy data, to which he has had access New Spain.
The investigation, for the moment, remains open because the whereabouts of the victim’s ex-partner, who remains the main suspect in the crime, are unknown. The victim, a 41-year-old cleaning lady, had broken his relationship with the now escaped in November. “He did not take it well and harassed her on social networks and called her at all hours, but we never thought that he could do something like this,” said Francisco José Dacuña, the Gijonesa’s brother. Although he admits that the man’s guilt has not yet been proven, he stressed that “there are not many more options.” The investigated is in search and capture inside and outside Asturias.
Dacuña’s body was located shortly after noon on Monday by several family and friends, who entered his home on Calle Callao number 6 with the keys of his brother. They were the first to see the woman’s bleeding body lying on her side on her bed. “They also saw two knives, although we still do not know if they are the ones he used or not, and his mobile phone, which was separated from her, “said the brother.
“That is what reminds me, that I could not have asked for help. Whether he killed her elsewhere or there, I don’t think she would have died instantly so I should have given her time to call. We believe he was with her from the time he stabbed her until she died, “he said.
The alleged culprit responds to the initials J. M. S. M. and the environment of the woman calculates that she is over 45 years old. He met the now deceased eight years ago, when he was working as a waiter in a Moreda cider house. According to Dacuña’s friends, the man moved to his apartment a short time later, although she “took a long time” to tell them about him. First they looked for a flat in El Natahoyo and, later, they moved to La Calzada. Over time, especially after the breakup, he began to trust them with more details about their relationship. “It took him a long time to tell us about the problems he had with him, many of us didn’t even know anything,” said several coworkers during the minute of silence that Brillastur – the company where the victim worked – welcomed at noon.
This investigated man should have come to work last Sunday at a cider house on Luis Braille Street, but he did not. Since then, the owners of the premises, who are also hoteliers, have been unable to contact him or his boss, who has been the tenant of the establishment for two months.
The gijonesa lost track permanently during Sunday. On Friday she left work at noon and spoke in the afternoon with Ana Menes, a pre-retired colleague from the same company and one of her closest friends. “I was going to Deva and just wanted to tell her that if I ran out of coverage over the weekend, I would talk to her on Monday,” he explained. It is also known that Saturday night he partied with another woman, which according to Menes is also a co-worker, although they did not maintain such a close relationship.
“I think he improvised it on the same day, because he didn’t tell me anything,” she said. Dacuña, however, did notify her other group of friends the same Saturday that she would have to cancel her plans to visit the Gijon flea market on Sunday because she planned to go out for a drink that day. Overnight, the women met two men and there are audio messages to other friends in which they recognized that they were both “very heavy” and that “they were not leaving them”. “But as far as we know, each one went home later; it had to be later,” said Menes.
The National Police, which calls the case “priority”, are looking for new evidence in Dacuña’s car, which was actually in the name of the escapee, and on his mobile phone. He also tries to rebuild his last hours of life. Those tasks include members of the Family and Women Unit (Ufam), the Specialized and Violent Crime Unit (Udev) and the Judicial and Scientific Police. The funeral home of Cabueñes welcomes this Wednesday at 13:00 the celebration of the word to bid farewell to the deceased, who will be buried in the municipal cemetery of Deva.
Her brother: “Lorena gave me the keys that she took from him”
Sunday is when doubts begin to arise, because Dacuña’s sister-in-law called her at around 9:00 p.m. and she did not answer. “The truth is that during the weekend we don’t talk much because each one has more or less his life, so when he didn’t take it from us we didn’t worry too much either. We wanted to ask him if he could take care of our daughter for work issues”, the brother specified. “I still think he could have killed her perfectly in the morning or at dawn the day before and that he had all that day to flee, “he said.
The total alarm was raised when Dacuña did not go to work first thing on Monday morning, a very unusual behavior for her. “He would come in at four in the morning to clean up Lavachel’s ship and several portals. We thought he had fallen asleep,” Menes reasoned. Before 11 am, her absence had no explanation, so the companion contacted this early retiree, who notified a childhood friend who knew the family.
This friend’s boyfriend, sister-in-law, another close friend and an uncle of the deceased got together. “We went to bite him at home and he didn’t answer, but his car was there,” explained this group. “Then we went to the cider house where he works and they told us that he had not appeared since Sunday; there we got into the worst“They added.” At twelve o’clock my wife called me and I told her that she had a copy of the keys; Lorena had given them to me recently, when she took them from him, and so we were able to enter, “Dacuña completed. By then, the same party was already heading to the police station, but turned around to return to Dacuña’s home and confirm their worst suspicions.
