Wafaa's last call
Wafaa Sabbah had not had a very orderly life in a while. They say he "came and went" from his parents' house, located near the Sanchís Guarner school in Pobla Llarga (Valencia), which sometimes threw himself away from home for many days and that is why no one thought it was strange that the young woman, who on January 24 he turned 20, will take a while without appearing there. The Sabbah family, from Morocco, settled many years ago in the small Valencian town, where Wafaa arrived as a child. The father is serving the last sentence in Picassent for a misdemeanor and is already leaving leave. His mother can no longer wait with agony waiting to hear from her eldest daughter while she takes care of her other two children aged 12 and 17. Tomorrow marks three months after his disappearance and the investigators have not yet found the person responsible for it or the whereabouts of the young woman, because they are convinced that Wafaa's has been a forced disappearance. It is true that the investigation did not start at the right time for several reasons. The main one was that his family did not file a complaint until almost thirteen days later, on November 30. The authorities initially considered that it could be a voluntary escape from the young woman, accustomed to being several days without showing signs of life. In fact, the one who was then a government delegate in Valencia, Juan Carlos Fulgencio, said that the Wafaa case was a "voluntary disappearance" and they did not believe he had suffered "any aggression." Nail words he had to rectify shortly after, when the researchers described the disappearance as high risk. His case was "mixed" at the beginning with the crime of Marta Calvo, the 25-year-old girl who allegedly died after using cocaine while having sex with a client. Jorge Ignacio Palma, already in provisional prison after confessing that he dismembered the girl, explained to the agents that the event took place at his house in Manuel, a town located just eight minutes by car from the town of Wafaa. In addition, the Saharawi disappeared ten days after the macabre crime and had just moved to Carcaixent (20 minutes from his town), precisely at whose police offices the confessed quarry of Marta Calvo was delivered. All this trickle of coincidences in places and dates made one think that Jorge Ignacio could also be behind the disappearance of Wafaa but this hypothesis was soon ruled out. Even so, as many could associate the two cases (especially the family of the Saharawi), from the address of the Picassent prison (where the Colombian entered last December 6) precise instructions were given for the quacker and father Wafaa will not cross in any module. But as the months have passed, that sense of connection has been diluted. Investigators are already working with the certainty that Wafaa's case is going through other paths. Nor was it easy to track his life. He did not have many established routines or fixed groups of friends, so beginning to investigate his privacy was not as if they did it in any girl of that age.
A sleeping sofa
Wafaa, who had just bought a dog, had moved to Carcaixent just a few weeks before his disappearance. A 35-year-old guy rented him a sleeping sofa. The neighbors of the building did believe that they were a sentimental couple but he declared before the Civil Guard - that he has taken a statement, at least twice, - that he would have liked to have relations with her but that Wafaa "did not want to". He also stated that he was hardly related to his friends and that he was alarmed to see that he was not returning home because he had to take the dog out. This individual, logically, was one of the main suspects for the investigators but at the moment he is still free. Also another man with a more questionable role in Wafaa's life. This is a guy in his 70s who, according to research sources, could act as cool with the girl. Apparently, the young woman prostituted herself in exchange for cocaine and those companies would now be in the spotlight. They also maintain the same sources that frequented environments with men much older than her and of Maghreb origin. This septuagenarian would also be the last person who spoke with her. He phoned her to ask where he was and she replied that in Xátiva, half an hour from Carcaixent. At about 6:00 p.m. on November 17, the mobile of the young Saharawi ceased to be active and her signal would have been lost forever. Or almost. Because on the 23rd and 24th of the same month, when I had been off the phone for a week, Wafaa's phone reconnected. Someone entered their pin number. It might be she or someone who knew the key. Investigators are more inclined to the second option: they believe someone turned on their terminal. On that occasion he deleted photos from one of three Instagram profiles That, they say, the young woman had. Through that antenna that gave the last signal, the agents of the Operational Technical Support Group (Jack), belonging to the Civil Guard UCO, are preparing a report after analyze the path the girl's mobile did and if it coincides with the trajectory of other mobiles whose holders may be suspected of their disappearance. The work of these experts is very important and they already demonstrated it in the investigation of Diana Quer's crime. As they showed in the trial, the study of the signal that their cell phone and the main suspect were giving, to the different antennas that were connected along the route in which «The Bubblegum» took Diana to another location, allowed to the agents to make a precise outline of the route and that was of vital importance for the investigation. Investigators of the disappearance of Wafaa continue working tirelessly to avoid falling into the dreaded deadlocks of some research. Meanwhile, as every day 17 (if the girl's mother wants it) in Pobla Llarga will once again focus on her honor. «It was only changed in January, on the 24th, because it coincided with his birthday. The important thing is to support the family, ”says the mayor, Neus Garrigues.
Without remains of Marta Calvo
It has been a hundred days since Marta Calvo was dismembered in Manuel's house and the researchers have also failed to find remains of the young woman of only 25 years. They only have the testimony of Jorge Ignacio Palma, the Colombian who, to celebrate his birthday, decided to make an appointment with Calvo to make a "white party." According to their version, they took cocaine and practiced sexual intercourse until they were exhausted. He fell asleep and, upon waking up, the girl was dead, so he was "scared" and, as if it were a logical reaction, says he decided to dismerse her and throw her remains in Alzira and Silla containers. The problem is that the positioning of your phone does match these locations but the Civil Guard does not fully believe its version. However, without any rest of the girl (who does not appear in the dumps where they should have gone to the remains of the containers indicated, such as Dos Aguas, already combed from top to bottom) can not prove if Jorge Ignacio he killed her or caused her death by introducing the narcotic through the girl's genitals. If a homicide could be demonstrated, it would be more than 10 years in prison, but if, he says, he "only" dismembered it, it would be a crime of desecration of corpse, punished only with six months in prison, so he wouldn't even go to jail. For now, as in the case of Wafaa, they are still looking for her. The two cases, coincidentally, are being instructed by the Alzira Court of Instruction number 6, which is actively collaborating with the investigators.
