The Civil Guard, in collaboration with the Basque Autonomous Police, has arrested two people residing in Pedrola (Zaragoza) as alleged perpetrators of various violent crimes, including the murder of José Antonio DELGADO FRESNEDO.

The alleged perpetrators, M.A.D., a 35-year-old Moroccan, and H.C.A.L., a 34-year-old Venezuelan, are charged with crimes of murder, illegal detention, extortion and robbery with violence.
The disappearance of the deceased was reported on September 9 before the Basque Autonomous Police, which requested days later the collaboration of the Civil Guard, after verifying the existence of cash withdrawals with the bank card of the disappeared person at various ATMs in localities of the Province of Zaragoza. From that first moment, a search device for the disappeared by the region of the Ribera Alta del Ebro was launched by the Commando of the Civil Guard of Zaragoza.

Once he had a conversation and located a man with a desire to meet her, he proposed to have an appointment in little crowded places in towns near Pedrola, where the victims, upon arrival, would be violently assaulted and illegally detained.
The aim of the authors with these facts was the removal of the belongings and vehicles of the victims, as well as the exercise of violence on them to obtain the keys of their credit cards and thus extract cash from their bank accounts. Once achieved, they abandoned their victims, still clotted and hooded, in rural areas of the area.
So far they are charged with three facts with the modus operandi described, the last one being the one that ended with the murder of the victim.
