Sanity is a delicate and fragile balance in the human psyche, a fine line that separates reason from irrationality. Loss of judgment, a descent into the darkness of the mind, can manifest in forms ranging from mere bewilderment to extreme and incomprehensible actions such as murder.
This was one of the great concerns of the actor Rodolfo Sancho a few years ago. And now he finds himself facing him after Daniel Sancho, his son, has murdered the surgeon Edwin Arrieta alleging fear of his death threats, for which he would only have found the way out of ending the life of the Colombian .
In 2020, during an interview with Hipertextual for the promotion of the movie Voces, Sancho confessed that his biggest fear was losing control of his mind, something he described as disturbing.
"What really scares me the most is losing control, not having control over one's mind, that there is the possibility that something is manipulating your mind to do things that you have decided to do," he declared. Sancho, noting that this fear causes him something "very bad, very gruesome."
These words, although at the time they may have seemed abstract or philosophical, have ended up being truly significant today after, in the absence of official evidence, it may be thought that Sancho would have lost his mind to commit the murder, something that the family considers
In this sense, the chef's family would like a psychological examination of the confessed murderer to be carried out so that the defense can go down this path. "We are missing the big question mark. We have the battle to prove whether there was a strong enough motivation in Daniel to commit this crime. Allow me to express myself as a criminologist: there is no crime in which there is no motivation. We want everything resolved." , has come to say Carmen Balfagón, defender and spokesperson for the family.
