Remedios Sanchez Sanchez, Serial Killer of Elderly Women – Spain, 2006


On July 6, 2006, Remedios Sánchez Sánchez, 48, following a police search of her home in Barcelona, was arrested.  She was charged with a series of attacks on elderly women whom she robbed, three of whom were murdered and five others who survived stranglings. Sánchez was apprehended by police in a gambling parlor playing a lot machine.

The crimes were committed over a four week period, June 10 through July 3, 2006. She killed an 83 year-old woman on June 10, a 95 year-old woman on June 30 and a 76-year-old on July 2.

The investigation was complex and time-consuming and the trial did not take place until 2008. July 3, 2008 Sánchez was found guilty of three murders and four attempted murders. She was sentenced to 144 years in prison and ordered to pay restitution to  victims’ families totaling 442,130 euros.
