Murder Victim. On October 8, 2011, Ruth Bretón Ortiz, along with her brother José, was murdered by their father, José Bretón Gómez, who then burned their bodies, leaving hardly any identifiable remains of the minors. The case was the subject of strong media coverage, initially because the father claimed that the children disappeared during an oversight, while playing in a park in the city of Córdoba. The Provincial Court of Córdoba finally sentenced José Bretón to 40 years in prison on July 22, 2013 for a double murder where kinship, premeditation and the ruthless character demonstrated by Bretón in the execution of the facts were mediated as aggravating factores. In March 2015 the sentence was reduced to a maximum of 25 years.On October 8 2011, José Bretón (Sr.) said he was taking his two children, Ruth (6) and José(Jr.)(2) Bretón to play at a park in central Córdoba, Spain. Later he reported the children missing to the police. A search began with police searching properties belonging to Bretón, eventually focusing on a property belonging to his parents called Las Quemadillas. On Monday August 27 2012, remains were found which at first were believed to be animals, but were later confirmed to be those of the children.
