The family of the slayer of Helena Jubany has formally presented the brief requesting the reopening of the judicial case for the murder of the young woman, found dead in Sabadell nineteen years ago. The judge at that time dismissed the case in 2005 without clarifying the authorship of the crime and the family has always denounced that the instruction was riddled with mistakes.
“Now, with the strength and warmth of many people and a well-done investigation, we think that truth and justice can prevail,” they assure from the family. If it doesn’t reopen now, the facts prescribe next year, in 2021, for anyone related to the case that had not already been investigated in the first instruction. For those who have already been charged, the term runs until 2025.
Jubany died the morning of December 2, 2001, after two days disappeared. Her body was thrown from a roof, completely naked and full of burns. The death of the young woman from Mataró, in addition, is surrounded by many mysteries. Three months before the crime, for example, Jubany received two anonymous letters accompanied by adulterated drinks with sleeping pills.

Santi Laiglesia was also freed from responsibilities, although although she was investigated, she was never detained for these events.
