Killing His Mother & Storing Parts of Her In His Fridge
A Spanish waiter has been jailed for more than 15 years after killing his mother, storing parts of her body in his fridge, and eating her ‘piece by piece’ with his dog. Alberto Sanchez Gomez, 28, was branded the cannibal killer of Ventas, the area of Madrid where he lived with his mother Maria Soledad Gomez. He was found guilty of strangling the 68-year-old before dismembering her body and eating part of her remains following a trial in May.
The jurors, six women, and three men dismissed Sanchez Gomez’s claims he was experiencing a ‘psychotic episode’ when he murdered his mother. The waiter told police upon his arrest on February 21, 2019, that he had been eating his mother ‘bit by bit with his dog.
Detectives then found parts of Ms. Soledad Gomez’s remains stored in plastic containers inside his fridge and in drawers around the family’s home. Her head, hands, and heart were allegedly found on her bed. Local reports at the time said her body had been cut up into more than 1,000 small pieces. Sanchez Gomez was handed a 15-year and five-month prison sentence after being convicted of homicide and desecration of a human corpse following a two-week trial at Madrid’s Audiencia Provincial court.
The sentence was laid bare in a written ruling made public today. A prosecution indictment submitted to the court ahead of the trial said the cannibal killer used a carpenter’s saw and two kitchen knives to cut up his mother’s body. Sanchez Gomez, whose father died when he was 15, claimed in court he had heard ‘hidden messages’ when he watched TV and voices telling him: ‘Kill your mum.’
He told Madrid’s Audiencia Provincial court that the voices were those of neighbors, acquaintances, and celebrities. But he insisted he didn’t remember cutting up his mother or eating her remains as he told police when they went to the murder scene. During a last address to the court, he insisted: ‘I’m very repentant. I suffer anxiety from the moment I wake up.
‘I think of my mum and I’m absolutely heartbroken.’ Jurors heard the convicted killer, who regularly consumed drugs and alcohol, had been arrested 12 times for mistreating his mother before the grisly outcome of their last row. He had also breached restraining orders several times. A police officer who gave evidence during the trial said: ‘He began to tell us as he was being transferred to a police station he had strangled her from behind. ‘He also said he had eaten parts of her body, some cooked and some raw, and had given some pieces to the dog.’
The court rejected Sánchez’s arguments that he was experiencing a psychotic episode at the time of the killing. He will now serve 15 years for murder and a further five months for the desecration of a corpse. He has also been ordered to pay his brother €60,000 ($73,000, £52,000) in compensation. Police arrived at the home in eastern Madrid in February 2019 after a friend raised concerns about the welfare of María Soledad Gómez, who was in her 60s.
During the trial, the court heard that Sánchez, then aged 26, had strangled his mother during a dispute. He then dismembered and ate parts of her body over the following two weeks, feeding some to his dog. Spanish media say he had been known to police because of violence against his mother and that he had breached a restraining order at the time of his arrest.
