'La Sexta' shows the hidden tomb of Rosario Porto and Asunta Basterra

The Netflix series The Asunta Case continues to give a lot to talk about. The fiction based on real events premiered several weeks ago, but it has had a great social impact in our country and around the world, which is why all kinds of information regarding the case has become topical.

During the last few days we are seeing how different figures 'close' to Alfonso Basterra and Rosario Porto (fathers and murderers of the Asunta Basterra) are sitting on television programs and how they are giving interviews to talk about what the woman was like before she took off her life and what the Basque is still like.

The majority of people who are coming out to speak are colleagues from the prisons in which Porto spent seven years of her life (two years of preventive detention and five years already sentenced for the murder of her daughter), although inmates who have also come out have shared penitentiary center with the journalist from the Basque Country, psychiatrists, lawyers, etc.

The variety of stories is extremely confusing, since while some define Asunta's mother as a fragile, good woman who ''would not hurt a fly'', others defend that she is a victimizing person, controlling and manipulative. On the other hand, the opinion about Basterra is quite unanimous: he is a man closed in on himself with problems relating to relationships.

But the testimonies of people close to the protagonists of the case are not the only thing that the media is publishing. Yesterday, the La Sexta program Better Evening published some images of the house where the crime was committed, which Rosario Porto's heirs are not able to sell. The building is located a few kilometers from the place where the authorities found the teenager's body, a place that has been turned into an altar full of flowers.

During its broadcast, the Atresmedia program published a video of the tomb that houses the remains of Asunta and her mother, which has gone unnoticed for years because it does not have the names of either of them. As a result of these images, the crypt located in the Santiago de Compostela cemetery is identifiable to everyone.

The images of Rosario and Asunta's tomb are just one more element of the case that has been published by the media. However, not everyone is happy that this crime has been rescued from media oblivion and is now one of the main topics of social discussion.

As can be seen on social networks, there are many Internet users who defend the theory that crimes should not be fictionalized, especially when they include minors.
