Father Killed Daughters and Dumped Bodies off a Sailboat

TENERIFE—A father allegedly killed his two young daughters at his house before dumping their bodies at sea off the Spanish island of Tenerife, according to a preliminary judicial investigation published on Saturday into the case which has shocked the nation.

Tomás G., who is missing, is the main suspect in the disappearance of Olivia, 6, and Anna, 1, after he failed to return the girls to their mother as agreed at the end of April.

 

 

A court issued an international warrant on Saturday for his arrest on suspicion of two counts of aggravated homicide and one of domestic violence.

He allegedly took their bodies in his car to his boat and dumped both overboard wrapped in towels and placed in sports bags at around 10:30 p.m. the same night.

“The plan of the accused was to cause his ex-partner the greatest pain she could imagine, by deliberately causing uncertainty about the fate that Olivia and Anna had suffered at his hands,”

Olivia’s body was found on Thursday in a sports bag weighted by an anchor at a depth of 1,000 meters (3,281 feet), near to where her father’s boat was found drifting.

A second sports bag found at the scene was empty, a court statement said.

After disposing of his daughters’ remains, Tómas G. returned to port in his boat but was stopped by a police patrol boat for breaking a coronavirus curfew, said investigators.

He left the port in his boat again after midnight on April 28 and has not been seen, they said.

 

An autopsy found that Olivia died from pulmonary edema, according to the Canary Islands Superior Court
