I always worry about my kids going out into the world but something about crimes against girls really gets to me now that I have a daughter of my own and Netflix’s New True Crime Series makes me want to lock her up for all eternity. You will probably want to do the same.
The new Netflix series is a five-part documentary called The Alcàsser Murders, which explores the still-unresolved 1992 murder of three teenagers dubbed the Alcàsser Girls.
The series contains new interviews and analysis but is also Netflix’s first Spanish original documentary.
If you are unfamiliar with the story, the Alcàsser Girls are 3 girls that went missing in November 1992, while hitchhiking on the way to a club in the Valencia region of Spain.
Miriam García Iborra, Antonia “Toñi” Gómez Rodríguez, and Desirée Hernández Folch were dropped off at a gas station by a couple and then picked up by another car. From there, the exact details leading up to their death are hard to piece together.
The girls’ bodies were found in January 1993, showing signs of having been kidnapped, tortured, and raped before being murdered. The murders have been renowned as one of the most brutal in Spanish history.
The murders have since gone unsolved even despite the fact they have a few suspects and even one guy who pleaded guilty, served time in prison then got out and hasn’t been heard of since.
The entire documentary is filled with bizarre twists and turns and things that just don’t add up or make sense.
If these unsolved mysteries spike your interest and remind you to lock your kids up, this one may just be for you.
Just be prepared it may disturb you.
