Matricide in Madrid


A 58-yar-old man has been arrested after his mother, aged 87, died of severe head injuries in Madrid on Monday night (9 March). The incident happened in the largely affluent San Blas neighbourhood, home of the Atletico Madrid football team. The emergency services were informed at about 1.30am after local residents heard screaming from the apartment.  They performed CPR on the victim but were unable to revive her. Her son was later arrested on suspicion of murder and it is reported that he suffers from mental disorders and has a history of similar incidents. This was the ninth murder in Madrid so far in 2020.
