LGTBI + associations call demonstrations throughout Spain in rejection of the murder of Samuel in A Coruña
La National Police has detained 13 people for his alleged involvement in the fatal assault on the young man Samuel Luis en A Coruña early Saturday morning thanks to the security cameras that recorded the beating and the testimony of several of the eyewitnesses.
There is also the circumstance that the attackers had left their ID data in a nearby nightclub where they had been before the event, which has facilitated their identification. Likewise, one of the girls who accompanied the victim identified the person who initiated the attack at the police station when she saw one of the videos.
"Either stop recording or I'll kill you, fag."
Lina and Vanesa, friends of Samuel, have related to El Mundo the beating they experienced in the first person. While Samuel and Lina they made a call to their friend Vanesa, they turned the mobile to show him where they were. «At that moment a boy and a girl passed by together and he yelled at us to stop recording them", remember Lina.
Without giving it importance, Samuel and Lina they were quick to explain to the young man that it was a misunderstanding, and that they were simply making a video call. Even vanesa, on the other end of the phone, raised his voice to corroborate the version of his friend and his girlfriend. However, the man, addressing exclusively to Samuel, pronounced the words that many of us still find it hard to forget: «Or stop recording or I kill you, fag«. TO Samuel he only had time to pronounce: «Fag of what?«.
At that moment he punched him very hard and began to hit him. A boy came to help them. When it seemed that everything had passed, just 5 minutes later the aggressor returned. He came back for him, this time accompanied by 12 other people, who took the opportunity to corner him and beat him to death.
