The order of the case of the girls of Tenerife makes it clear that the intentions of Thomas Gimeno were to cause as much pain and uncertainty as possible to Beatriz Zimmermann, his ex-partner and mother of his two daughters, Anna y Olivia. And not only that, but the murderer was able to consider ending her, minutes after he did it with the minors on his farm, in Igueste de Candelaria.
According to the court order, on April 27, around 5:00 p.m., Tomás picked up his daughters, ages 1 and 6, to spend the afternoon with them until 9:00 p.m., when he had to leave them at the maternal home and place of residence of the minors. First he picked up the youngest, Anna, and then drove to do the same with the older one. Die Villa educational center, where Olivia went on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
At that moment, Tomás took the opportunity to leave a message to his current partner, the director of that school, inside a listening room, closed with duct tape. He handed it over to him and asked him not to open it until 11:00 p.m. the same day. Despite this, he opened the case twenty minutes later, finding inside it 6,200 euros and a letter saying goodbye to her and informing him that he would leave the country with his two daughters.
While the couple of the girls ‘father found out about his plans, Tomás was already on his way to his parents’ house. There he left the smallest [cuyo cadáver no ha aparecido todavía], to take Olivia shortly after to her tennis classes at the Sports Club of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, which would last until 6:30 p.m.
After being left alone, the father took the opportunity to go to Marina of Santa Cruz de Tenerife, to test the boat that he had docked and that he would use hours later to dispose of the corpses of his two daughters. At 5:56 p.m., he left there, picked up Olivia and returned to her parents’ house, where he remained with the minors until 7:26 p.m.
It was when he went to his farm in Igueste de Candelaria. There, he allegedly killed his daughters, wrapped them in towels and placed them in garbage bags, and later in sports bags, which he placed in his vehicle. But before, however, as described in the car, Tomás sent an audio to the mother, Beatriz Zimmermann, with the voice of her daughter Olivia telling her that her father asked her to go and look for the pictures “of Tata and to put the car (on the farm) “. After which she asked what time and they replied that “at 9:00 pm”.
Beatriz Zimmermann arrived after 9:00 p.m. at the Candelaria farm, possibly thinking that she would also take her daughters, since it was the agreed time when Gimeno had to deliver them. There was no one left there. He went inside, took the paintings and called the father to ask the father where they were. Tomás told her that “they had gone to eat something and that he would leave Anna at her home, in Radazul.”
The father summoned the mother of his daughters to the farm just five minutes after he left her aboard his vehicle, with the corpses of his daughters inside. Thus, what researchers are asking is why. Did you at some point try to kill her too? Although the agents have not yet managed to decipher this movement, there are several hypotheses they handle.
The first to consider killing her [la cita en la finca y le pide que entre con el coche hasta el interior] and when the time came he would either back down or change his plan. And the second one that took longer than expected to get rid of the minors and left Igueste de Candelaria later.
