Man commits suicide believing he had killed his girlfriend


A 22-YEAR-OLD man hanged himself from a bridge in Cordoba after he believed to have killed his girlfriend. He allegedly strangled the 20-year-old woman in Las Moreras district of the city, put her in the boot of his car thinking she was dead, and then abandoned it on some wasteland before hanging himself from a bridge over the Guadalmellato Canal.

However, the victim regained consciousness three hours later and was able to get out of the car. She went to the police to report the attack and was later admitted to the Reina Sofia Hospital, where she remains, although her condition in not known.


Police had been looking for the man, who had lost both his parents and lived with his elderly and infirm grandmother. He took care of her, but had lost his job and was attempting to get a license to drive lorries.

The couple had been together for some time and the woman had never reported him for abuse. Apparently that night, she had called him and wanted to meet because she had something important to tell him.
