While a third user tweeted the case the documentary is "a dark, ugly, twisted, sad, strange case."

They added: "Everyone in there was hiding something. Too many irregularities to count. Way more questions than answers.

The Alcàsser Murders is a five-part series which details the disturbing 1992 murders of Miriam García Iborra, Antonia "Toñi" Gómez Rodríguez and Desirée Hernández Folch.

After setting off on a journey to a nightclub on 13th November 1992 in the nearby town of Picassent, the teens were were kidnapped, raped, tortured and murdered.

They were last seen alive by a local resident getting into a car, thought to be a white Opel (Vauxhall) Corsa that was carrying a group of men.

The girls were reported missing and an extensive search was launched to find them. However, their bodies were found on January 27 1993, 75 days after they died.

Their bodies were found by two beekeepers in a ditch after heavy rain softened the land, leading to the bodies rising above where they had been buried.

The autopsy confirmed they had been tortured before they died. It also revealed that seven hairs found on their bodies had seven distinct DNA profiles.

A man named Miguel Ricart is the only man charged for the triple murders. According to his statement, he and another man called Antonio Anglés, who is now a wanted fugitive, picked up the girls in their car.

When the car drove past their destination, the girls began to scream. They were taken to an abandoned house where the horrific torture, rapes and murders took place.

The police investigation into the murders is also scrutinised in the documentary series.

Miguel was sentenced to 170 years but was released from prison in 2013 after serving 21 years. This is because at the time of sentencing, the maximum effective time a person could be in jail was 30 years.

The brutality of the case made headlines in Spain, and the media coverage at the time is followed closely in the Netflix documentary, which was released in 2019.

The Alcàsser Murders is available on Netflix now.
