New direction in the summer plot. And now Sonsoles has exploded the first day of TardeAR with an exclusive feature that puts a 180-degree turn on the Daniel Sancho case. No one disagrees that the confessed murderer is actually the son of the famous actor. However, the program directed by Sonsoles Ónega has forcefully launched the new afternoon rivalry by obtaining and broadcasting an interview with a person named Luis, who was violently and exhaustively harassed by Edwin Arrieta 18 years ago. “The man who could have been Daniel Sancho,” is the title of the format. It is an obsession taken to the extreme, in which love (if there is any) and fear are drowned in madness.
Bogotá, 2005. A young man files a complaint. “We met six months ago. From day one he showed sentimental interest in me and did everything to find an excuse to be with me,” Luis begins. “He tried to buy me a drink and I couldn’t take no for an answer,” he adds of that first evening. Faced with rejections, the enigmatic interviewee says, Arrieta persisted: “He gave me invitations and details that I had to decline so as not to give him a reason for my interest.”
And it was in this loop that Arrieta’s sentimental rage was supposedly unleashed. “One day he called me 143 times,” Luis says, illustrating the extent of the surgeon’s harassment. “I had to quit my job because he threatened that he would cause scandal in my office,” he continues, showing a bite that the deceased would have inflicted on him. Then the cases that the interviewee lists become a cascade: “He blackmailed me, he said that he had people following me and that he was targeting my family.”
“Either he would have killed me or I would have killed him.”
At this point the statements take on a dark nuance that, Sonsoles in hand, is covered up with truthfulness. The presenter assures that they have the complaint that supports the story that Luis is going to tell. “He physically attacked me. “I was carrying my PC with me and it broke because of the beating,” he admits, describing in detail the beating he suffered. “I had to change my phone number and home number because it no longer brings peace to my life and has become a terror,” the complaint states.
There was still one last test to be done. The injury report, which accompanies Luis’ story and adds the icing on the cake to the investigation, was submitted by the program team. “The complainant states that injuries occurred that left him incapacitated for two days,” it says. One sentence echoes throughout the set: “I felt identified with Daniel; “Either he would have killed me or I would have killed him.”
