• Opinion Rosa Peral: the urban guard and the 'Tontoelbote' that surpassed fiction with reality

The crime of the Guardia Urbana, the murder of a member of the local police of Barcelona at the hands of two colleagues, was one of the news of the year 2017. After Albert López and Rosa Peral were convicted of the murder, society moved on to something else and the case was forgotten. But the Netflix series 'The Body on Fire' has resurrected the event, and new details of this fatal love triangle do not stop being known.

The members of 'Equipo de investigación' have published several messages that Albert López, Rosa Peral's lover, sent to his patrol partner before and after both ended the life of Pedro Rodríguez. In those who wrote to him before, it can be seen that "he wants to get your attention by talking like that," according to a psychologist in the program of 'La Sexta'.

"You are a liar and a fake and you have no balls to tell the truth. You've been lying to me for months and I won't forgive you. You are a traitorous rat. Luckily, your face doesn't lie. We will never go on patrol again, or anything, forget it," Albert tells Rosa before the crime when he learns of the relationship between her and Pedro.

But the tone and content of the writings varies greatly in the messages that Albert sends him after Pedro's murder. "I'm ashamed of how I was when I lost you, I've cried so much... Until yesterday I wasn't able to think of you without crying," he told her by text.

This change in the way of expressing himself would be a new strategy of Albert to "go from lover victim who wants to give pity to be able to return with her," explains the psychologist in the program.
