Asunta Basterra

Asunta Basterra (the story has been covered by Bizarrepedia before) was a 12-year-old girl adopted from China by a wealthy and well respected Spanish family – lawyer Rosario Porto Ortega and journalist Alfonso Basterra Camporro. Her adoptive parents reported her missing on the evening of September 21, 2013, only ten days short of her 13th birthday. Asunta was repeatedly poisoned with benzodiazepine-based sedatives and eventually suffocated by her adoptive parents. The motive was greed – Asunta was about to inherit expensive real estate from her grandparents. The photo below is one of the last photos taken by her parents, where she was drugged and wrapped in a blanket.
