INVESTIGATION (I). Crime in the La Mota Fortress: Was it a ritual?

The report of the Judicial Police of the Civil Guard is clear. The girl presumably died of suffocation and her body was found in the church of Santo Domingo de Silos in Alcalá la Real completely naked, with symptoms of sexual assault and with a setting that simulates a celebration related to the rituals of the devil. This is what the family of Khawla wants to prove, judicially, the 14-year-old girl who was brutally murdered on February 14 in a crime that shocked Spanish society and whose trial is still pending in the Provincial Court of Jaén.

The confessed perpetrator of such a terrible event has been in prison since that day when, by his own means, he called the 112 Emergency service to confess that he had “killed a girl”, as can be seen in the audio to which he had access this newspaper, a telephone call in which he showed chilling coldness. However, there are many unknowns surrounding a crime that tore a family to pieces and broke the heart of his mother, Hakyma Z., a beloved woman integrated into Alcala society who will fight until the last breath of her life so that Justice be done. She wants to know why Nazzaryn NN, 22, chose her daughter to participate in a “demon ritual”, why she took her to the Fortaleza de la Mota from a “friend’s” house, why she forced her why, presumably, he killed her, why he laid her body on a kind of altar —a window— in the ruins of the inaccessible church of Santo Domingo de Silos, why he undressed her and, apparently, sexually assaulted her, why confessed and many other whys in which she has her own thesis: there were more people involved in the crime. The police report, which this newspaper was able to see, is devastating. The scene is impossible to explain in a journalistic account. The image of Khawla’s body in a place where trespassing is prohibited is worth a thousand words.

Cage, as it was and is known in Alcalá la Real, a student whose worst exam grade is a nine out of ten, asked her mother, that Tuesday, February 15, to let her go to a friend’s house to help her study. “I didn’t like the idea, but I dropped it,” says Hakyma. She promised to return at eight thirty in the evening and, when the hour approached and she did not return, a real revolution broke out in the neighborhood. “My heart was going wrong, something that told me that something had happened to my girl,” says the interviewee, who went out into the street, “screaming, screaming,” to ask for help in the search for her little girl. She called the Civil Guard headquarters, went there and, upon returning home, seeing that it was half past nine and Jaula was still missing, she herself gave her up for dead. It was then that a Benemérita agent appeared at her home to ask for the adolescent’s documentation. Meanwhile, Nazzaryn NN had already phoned 112 to confess to the crime. She said that her body was in the Fortaleza de la Mota, but she did not specify the specific place and it was around ten at night when they found it in an old church propped up by its dilapidated state. He was arrested, he went to court the next day and the judge sent him directly to prison, where he remains.

No one knows how they both got there. She had her mobile phone turned off at all times, so the family believes that she was tricked. The girl’s mother is convinced that Nazzaryn used a red family vehicle to take her, forced, to that corner of La Mota Fortress. Apparently, they knew each other from the Alfonso XI Institute, where they studied the third year of ESO, but they were not related. In fact, he himself confirmed it in the call made to the emergency service. Everything seems to indicate that he died of suffocation, according to the investigation by the Judicial Police of the Civil Guard, later confirmed by the autopsy itself. There were no stab wounds or gunshot wounds on a body where the only thing left on was a sock. Police reports also ensure that the teenager did not stay still. In her nails there are even remains of the body of the alleged perpetrator of the crime that make investigators think that she fought until the end for her own life. Allegedly, after killing her, he stripped her naked and raped her. Traces of semen were found in her vagina and the scene supposedly simulated a ritual. The clothes were on the floor, next to her corpse.

Nazzaryn confessed what he had done with some cold words that surprised even the person who picked up the phone at 112. He gave details of how he was dressed, in a red sweatshirt and gray pants, and announced that he would not move from the place until the agents will arrive. He did so. He said goodbye with a “thank you very much”. One of his friends received a photograph of the crime scene and several audio recordings in which he defined himself as a “psychopath.”

The commotion took over the residents of this quiet city in the Sierra Sur. The City Council, the next day, called a minute of silence in which the town turned to the Jaula family and the confessed author went to court and went to prison. Since then, Hakyma Z. has been fighting to clarify everything that happened. He works tirelessly to be able to cover the expenses of a private lawyer with no help other than his hands. He lives with his ten-year-old son in a humble apartment block rented by the Alcalá la Real City Council, where he is cold in winter and hot in summer, in conditions that every human being seeks to improve for the good of his loved ones. However, what matters to him, now, is to achieve Justice.
