"I wish the death of Nuka serve to raise the awareness of the poisoner who killed her. What a shame to be Aznalcóllar news for these matters, there is no right that this usually happens for a small minority of bad people, because Aznalcóllar is not like that (…) I hope that at least it serves to stop the scoundrel who does it and that the authorities are more aware of this practice, not so isolated . It is a danger for all "continues the letter.
