Police investigate as sexist murder the death of a 21-year-old woman in Ibiza, allegedly thrown off a hotel balcony after which the man committed suicide, local press reports.
The events occurred on Thursday. What at first seemed like an episode of tourists’ balconing, has turned out to be a sexist crime. The victim had dual Italian and Spanish nationality and was 21 years old. His attacker was 26 years old.
The Ibiza Town Hall reported that they received the call from 091 requesting assistance because two people they had fallen from the fourth floor of a hotel in Playa d’en Bossa. The toilets displaced to the scene of the event could only certify the death of the two tourists.
If this hypothesis is confirmed, it would be the eighth woman killed in the last month due to gender violence in Spain. The The Ministry of the Interior has ordered the reinforcement of the Police staff aimed at assessing the risk of women who have reported sexist violence, as the Ser string.
The Balearic Government has said this Thursday that This is the second woman to die in the Balearic Islands this year, murdered by her partner or ex-partner and with it are 41 women murdered in the autonomous community for this cause and the third in Ibiza since 2003, the year in which the official count began.
