The Catalan police – Mossos – have to investigate the murders of women by former or current partners with depressing frequency, but last week’s was one with a difference. A Venezuelan turned up at the police station in Gerona, with the body of his 20-year-old ex-girlfriend in the boot of his car. The girl, from Honduras, had broken off her relation with the Venezuelan a year ago and was too terrified to report his constant threats and attempts to get her back. As a result, she became the 35th woman to die so far this year as a result of domestic violence. Last year, 48 women had been killed during the same period.
