The Laxshmi Association for the Fight against Crime and Prevention, represented as a popular prosecution in the case of the Alcàsser girls, has asked the judge to authorize new genetic analyzes to "corroborate the participation of the escaped Antonio Anglés" and "clarify the circumstances that surrounded" the investigation, according to the newspaper Las Provincias on Wednesday.
Obtaining new DNA evidence is key to continue with the investigations of the triple crime that occurred in the Valencian town of Alcàsser in 1993. Thus, the popular accusation has requested that the garments of the victims be analyzed, as well as a sheet, pieces of bodywork, wood, fibers from a mattress and the carpet that wrapped their corpses, according to information published by this newspaper.
In statements by the judicial expert and president of Laxshmi, Félix Ríos, to Las Provincias "finding DNA from Anglés and the victims on the mattress covers would serve to locate a possible sexual activity in the booth." In addition, he explains that "finding it on the victims' clothes or the carpet would demonstrate direct sexual activity with them", while "finding the girls' blood in the car or the shed would place them there with certainty".
Likewise, it has provided two new reports, one of them signed by an expert in forensic genetics, on the latest DNA evidence found, which is added to the document provided by the technical director of the Forensic Genetics Laboratory of the Institute of Legal Medicine of Las Palmas , José Juan Pestano, on the fact that current genetic techniques allow «finding DNA in evidence of conviction where it could not be obtained thirty years ago».
A little less than a month ago, the agents of the Central Eye Inspection Team (ECIO) of the Civil Guard found new samples of traces of blood in the passenger seat of the car - an Opel Corsa - of Miguel Ricart, the only one convicted in the triple murder of the Alcàsser girls in 1993, which is "the first real forensic advance of the case since the 90s".
