MADRID, March 16. – Police in Madrid arrested yesterday Rafael Fernandez Garcia, also known as “The Rafita”, 23. Wanted by the police for kidnapping, rape, killing and burning alive a young woman named Sandra Palo almost nine years.
The murder of young Sandra Palo, which occurred when the kidnapper and victim was just 14 years old.
The suspect got away from the police operation which was set up last August to disband the group; he was arrested along with dozen people.
