Killer Couple Lure Businessman With Dating App Before Robbing And Burying Him Alive
Candy Arrieta, 34, and her 35 year old partner Mohamed Achraf dubbed the ‘Badoo Killers’ have all been jailed in Zaragoza, Spain for kidnapping, torturing, murdering, and burying alive businessman Jose Antonio Delgado Fresnedo, 54. The judge also sentenced them both to 25 years in prison for murder, six years for kidnapping,
three for fraud. An investigation found that the victim went to Luceni in the Zaragoza Province to meet Arrieta after also arranging a meeting on the dating app Badoo. However, instead of the young woman, Achraf rather approached Delgado Fresnedo and beat him before
stealing his personal belongings and his Mercedes 220. The couple then took Delgado Fresnedo to the town of Pedrola where they lived and had a workshop. There they demanded that the businessman hand over all his bank cards and passwords also and beat him when he refused. They then assaulted him with blunt objects too.
Jose Antonio Delgado Fresnedo, Victim
The next day, Achraf put the victim’s Mercedes up for sale on an online portal and agreed a price of €21,000 (£17,666) with a buyer. He has reportedly forwarded a deposit of €11,000 (£9250). After being beaten and tortured, the victim was dumped in the car boot and also taken to the area of Barranco del Lobo where the
defendants dug a hole and buried him alive. His body was found with the help of an ankle bracelet he was forced to wear after he was accused of beating his ex-wife. An autopsy found Delgado Fresnedo had received head trauma and nine broken ribs along with injuries from being tied up. Dirt was found in his lungs too after
being buried alive. Police believe the couple carried out similar robberies on at least three separate occasions, with Delgado Fresnedo their final victim and the only to be killed. The ‘Badoo Killers’ are also currently on trial for a violent robbery in the June.
