The Netflix series starring Tristán Ulloa, Candela Peña, María León, Javier Gutiérrez and Raúl Arévalo has rescued from media oblivion one of the most notorious crimes in our country: the murder of the 12-year-old girl Asunta Basterra Porto at the hands of her parents, Alfonso Basterra and Rosario Porto.

The fiction about the harsh crime that shocked Spain in 2013 has become very popular around the world and for weeks has occupied a position among the most viewed on the streaming platform in countries such as the United States or Argentina.

In the series you can see how the ex-couple tried to mislead the Police by reporting the disappearance of the teenager, but, after a few hours of searching, the authorities found Asunta’s body next to a farm road a few kilometers from a family home. from Porto. From that moment on, the parents began to act strangely, to present inconsistencies in their stories… which, together with different evidence, placed them as the main suspects of the crime.

Finally, both were arrested and spent two years in preventive detention. In 2015, Basterra and Porto were tried and sentenced to 18 years in prison for the murder of their daughter. While the Basque is still serving his prison sentence, Porto could not stand the pressure and took his own life in November 2020.

Following the success of the Netflix fiction, different people who were in prison with the ex-couple are speaking to the media. This is the Case of Carmen María, who shared many moments with Porto in prison and who has now dared to give a theory of what really happened to little Asunta.

”I always say that Basterra got out of hand and she got involved in some way and said ‘we have to put an end to everything.’ But then you start to think, the conversations you have with her and you say, it doesn’t sound so much like that to me anymore, but between the two of them, she managed Basterra as she wanted and Basterra was the puppet because of how in love he was with her,” he said. the inmate on the radio program Trapos Sucios.

Some prisoners who shared space with Porto define her as a good person and completely incapable of harming anyone. On the contrary, others have described the Galician as “manipulative” and playing the role of victimhood until the end.

In the case of Carmen María, the former inmate confirmed in the interview that the lawyer enjoyed certain privileges in prison and that the rest of her colleagues harassed her day in and day out, which is why she stayed in the infirmary for a while. In addition, she has provided other information of interest, such as that Rosario never gave a name to her lover nor spoke much about him, but instead she named in passing “a special person” that she had had in her life. her.
