Ricart was sentenced to 172 years in prison


Benefited from the Parot doctrine, he should have been behind bars until at least 2023. He served a sentence in the Herrera de la Mancha prison, where he was known as El Rubio.

After getting out of jail, Ricart headed to Madrid.

From there, he traveled by Ave to Córdoba.

Telemadrid cameras managed to capture an image of him at the Atocha station.

According to the mayor of the Andalusian city at that time, José Antonio Nieto, the information was "rumors of social networks" and called for the "tranquility" of citizens.

He was recognized at the North Station of Barcelona, ​​where he was seen for the last time before disappearing
