1.The Alcàsser Murders – June 14
This four-part true-crime documentary unpicks one of Spain’s most notorious and unsolved triple murders.
In 1992 three teenage girls, Miriam García Iborra, Antonia “Toñi” Gómez Rodríguez and Desirée Hernández Folch were kidnapped while hitchhiking to a nightclub, and their bodies were discovered 75 days later, with signs of rape and torture. 25 years later, Miguel Ricart, has been charged for the crime, but police believe more perpetrators were involved.
The Alcàsser Murders aims to unpick the horrendous crime, detailing exactly what happened on the night the three girls were abducted, and what has come of the police investigation since.
