The agent’s body was found burned in the trunk of his own car on a forest road in the Foix reservoir. The court was of the opinion that the convicts, a romantic couple, continued their love affair while Rosa lived with Pedro.but they decided to terminate the victim because it was “hindering their relationship”.

joint crime

For this reason, the sentence states that “they made a plan to take the victim’s life and finally decided to put it into practice on the night between May 1, 2017 and May 2.” That day, when Peral “arrived at his home in Cubelles after spending the afternoon at his family’s home with the victim and her daughters, he began several telephone conversations with Albert López, and at an unspecified time in the early morning hours of that date, 05/02/2017, Albert López also arrived at the victim’s home.” and after he went to Rosa Peral, jointly, or at least one with the consent and active cooperation of the other, attacked the victim and violently deprived her of her life.Carrying out their actions and acting with common spirit or intent, or knowing and assuming that if they acted in this way they were likely to end Pedro’s life.

In 2021, Albert published a book of over 400 pages titled ‘Presumption of Guilt’, in which he once again declared that he was “innocent” of the crime and that Rosa came to him in desperation to help him get rid of the body. WITHHe also says that there is evidence that was not taken into account in the investigation and that will exonerate him..
