The victim of a botched robbery in Porreres, Pau Rigo, and the brother of one of the assailants who died after being shot by Rigo yesterday returned to the scene of the crime, or crimes, to help investigators reconstruct what happened on the day of 24 February.

Rigo, 77, who is still suffering from injuries sustained when he and his wife were attacked, was very emotional on his return, but the victim’s brother, Freddy Escobar, was sticking to his account of what happened. Rigo maintains that he fired in self-defence. Freddy has told police that Rigo shot his brother as they tried to run away and stands accused of killing the robber.

The Guardia Civil, who are leading the investigation, were on the scene in force and filmed the reconstruction, despite the fact that the two key individuals were unable to agree on exactly what happened.

Rigo is adamant that he shot Mauricio Escobar at close range because he was about to be hit again. Both men conducted their versions of the incident separately. Rigo told the Guardia Civil he was unable to see Freddy because he is still psychologically affected by what he and his brother did to him and his wife at their home.

Freddy repeated his claim that Rigo shot his twin brother as they fled with 12,000 euros of stolen cash. Two other people were involved in the robbery but they did not enter the property.
