In the mind of a filicide.

They are the hardest crimes to understand, but they happen more often than you think.

But… What is a filicide?

It is the generic term that is called to indicate the murder of a child by one of his parents.

Based on studies carried out by the psychoanalyst Resnick P.J (1969), he proposed several classifications for filicide based on the reasons for which the father or mother committed the crime.

1. Altruistic filicide: this category includes cases of major depressive disorders, psychotic depressions and even psychosis. It was found that most of the cases the expressions of the aggressors are of the type "I have given peace to my son" "he will be happier up there"

2. Sharply psychotic filicidia: these are those in which parents kill one of their children under the influence of hallucinations and delusions, this category is mental disorders or major where lack of reasoning abounds. It is important to note that aspects such as the abuse of alcohol or any drug are very rarely present as a direct cause of crime.

3. Filicide for unwanted children: this category includes the crime of neonaticide. In other words, the absence of a father figure to take care of the baby can be one of the main reasons why the mother can kill her child.

4. Accidental filicide: this category includes those cases in which minors are victims of physical abuse. They are thus defined because the intention of the murderer was not to kill but only to hurt and / or punish.

5. Filicide for revenge: these cases are those in which a parent kills their child as a deliberate way of making the other parent suffer, this type of filicide is known as “Medea complex”.

An example of this crime occurred on August 24 of this year, where a 44-year-old Argentine is accused of killing his 2-year-old son as revenge for his ex-partner, with whom he had separated a few days before. The brutal case occurred in a hotel in the city of Barcelona. Everything happened during the night of that day when Álvarez Giaccio appeared at the hotel where the boy lived with his mother.

The man said he wanted to go for a walk with the boy and took him to another hotel. From there he sent a message to his ex-wife in which he announced that "he was going to regret" the separation and a suggestive message: "I will leave you at the hotel what you deserve." The woman gave notice to the Police, so they went to the hotel quickly and in a room on the seventh floor, they found the deceased boy, apparently from suffocation, in the bathroom.

So, attempting against the lives of one's own children is called an unnatural crime, which must be sought for an explanation which must be given by science and operated by justice.

One of the main reasons to commit murder is to solve a problem. And for some people, the fact that the cause of this problem is their children is not an impediment to ending it.

Can you detect lies on Whatsapp?

We lie constantly and it is inevitable. What no one predicted is that new technologies would bring an increase in deception. While face-to-face conversations offer valuable context such as: the variation of the tone of the voice, facial expressions and hand gestures with which we can interpret the intentions of the other person, digital communications allow to hide these actions to determine if the person is he lying or not.

Some people have become masters of lies. They know how to compose their messages to make them sound true, explains Tom Meservy, a professor at Brigham Young University.

A study carried out by Meservy, was that a hundred university students responded to a questionnaire by computer. Half of your answers should be false, so the researchers will check for patterns in the lies. And there were: the lies included a lot of short words, took 10% longer to compose, and were edited multiple times during the process. In terms of Whatsapp, those messages written with a lie went from 'writing' to 'online' and so on, which betray falsehood or discomfort in the sender.

To determine the commonalities of insincere messages, here are the details to watch out for when you suspect they are being insincere with you:

Gets tangled up with many words

To justify himself, a liar feels the need to excuse himself with more words. If the person who responds to you does so with emphasis, with a short sentence, his answer probably corresponds to reality; but if he lingers in impossible sentences, he is most likely lying to you.

Evasive, evasive and more evasive.

Under conditional texts such as 'surely', 'maybe' or 'possibly'. Liars try not to lock themselves in with phrases that are too clear or that link them to a specific opinion and, therefore, their responses consist of words that leave the door open to free interpretations.

Quickly change the subject

This is another very reliable indicator; no one is comfortable in lying and, therefore, tries to divert attention as soon as he has a chance. Therefore, if you notice that before you have closed the topic he interrupts you with another question or with a radical change of topic, be clear: he is lying to you.

It takes life to answer

Bad business. He's thinking about it. He is mulling over the issue not to commit, to get out of this alive. Taking into account that most of us don't take too long to respond to any message, unless they are busy, but if you find that when faced with a potentially uncomfortable question, their speed in responding varies, again, be suspicious.

Hunch, intuition, sixth sense.

Call it what you want, but you know it works and it puts you on the trail of liars.

Finally we give you two examples of the "typical" messages of a liar and how to find out:

"I just read the message"

 A classic, how many times has a contact told you that?: "Sorry, I just read your message", and it turns out that the double blue check is there indicating that the message we have sent has been received, opened and read . The application has a function that tells you exactly how long ago that message of yours was read. And it is that Whatsapp has a hidden information screen that reveals this particular data to you. To find it, we must do the following: We open the chat window and look for the message that interests us in the conversation with the contact; we hold that message down until a series of icons appears at the top in the case of Android and iPhone slides the message to the left.

"I'm here; I'll be here in 10 minutes"

Another classic, that of being waiting in a place and that the person you have met does not show up at the agreed time is tedious. To do this, Whatsapp allows you to activate a function to send a contact the exact location where the other person is, and follow him in real time. You just have to open a chat, press the clipboard icon that is right in the text bar, and select from the options the one that says “real-time location”. And voila, so you will know if your contact is lying to you or not.

Counterfeit COVID-19 certificates


With vaccination against the coronavirus, PCR and antigen testing at a good pace in most countries, the covid digital certificate will become a fundamental tool to promote mobility, the economy and / or mass events. But misfortunes are always taken advantage of by criminals and cybercriminals.

Vaccine research and development has been the target of cyberattacks since the beginning of the year, practically since the pandemic began. The same with the illegal sale of unapproved masks or "remedies" as treatment against COVID-19 promoted by scammers. Not to mention the false documents in which you get a document that can be from any patient, scan it and modify it with an editing tool.

In Spain this type of false covid certificates have not yet been detected, but they have been detected in other countries such as Germany, Mexico, etc. The authorities have reported the appearance of the first false certificates of both vaccination and PCR and antigen tests, and it is still a minor phenomenon in numerical terms, but supply and demand will increase.

And it is very likely that criminals will take advantage of the opportunity to produce and sell false certificates of Covid-19 tests, while forcing people to take tests to make any trip in times of pandemic.

Given the diversity of technological means available with HD printers and a variety of software, counterfeiters can produce high-quality fake documents. However, no great process is necessary to produce the fake certificates. Unlike passports, money, IDs among other things that have difficult to reproduce security marks, laboratory documents are usually simple standard size printer sheets and sometimes simple email.

 The verification process so far is pretty simple. It is done by eye. A traveler presents a negative PCR test, the health personnel check that the data agrees with the identity document, that it is done 72 hours before the flight and that the test is one of those considered valid.

But... How can you know that it is a false certificate?

At Oliver detectives we have certified documentscopy experts who will take care of examining the documents in order to detect alterations in the paper, printing and security systems. Where we guarantee to determine its authenticity or the possible alterations that it has been subjected to.

And if you see an advertisement for PCR tests, antigen tests, and even fraudulent COVID-19 vaccination certificates online, it is best to report it to the police. We are playing a lot to consent to the actions of these criminals.

Beware of all this!
