Where Is Marta?: Netflix's True Crime Doc Has Viewers 'Screaming At TV'

In 2009, Marta del Castillo, 17, went missing in Seville, Spain, and still to this day, her body has never been found. Now, the teenager's disappearance is being explored in Netflix's new true crime series Where is Marta? - and viewers have left viewers shaken by the case.

Marta had told a friend over social media that she was meeting up with her ex-boyfriend, the 19-year-old Miguel Carcaño Delgado, who confirmed they met that evening before she disappeared. He later confessed to murdering her but changed his version of events several times.

The key change to his confessions was the means of disposing of the body, initially saying he dumped her body in a river and then later claiming he disposed of it in a dumpster. Delgado was convicted of murder, but Marta's body has never been found.
