Carmel: Who Killed Maria Marta is a Netflix documentary that has taken the world by storm, just
like the actual case the documentary is based on. Fans and spectators across
the globe are mind blown, as they’re suspicious of literally everyone who’s
part of the story – even the family.
The new Netflix docuseries is a four-part Spanish-language story that grapples with 2002
murder of an Argentinian sociologist Maria Marta Garcia Belsunce. The woman was
found in her bathtub, dead.
Maria was 50 years old
at the time and was sharing a home with her husband of 31 years – Carlos. He
was later accused and arrested for her murder charges and spent five years in
prison after which the prosecutor’s conviction was overturned. Turned out, he
spent five years in prison for nothing as he was innocent.
Initially, the theory which prevailed was that she has
accidentally hit her head and drowned in the bathtub since the autopsy had
ruled her death as “non-traumatic cardiac arrest”. Most of the family, even
Carlos bought this story fed to them by the doctors.
However, soon her family insisted on the further investigation
because her brother was not entirely satisfied with the reason. After a couple
of weeks, the autopsy revealed that she had been shot several times. Even after
the family requested for privacy and respect, viewers couldn’t hold back and
believe the story – they felt that the family was behaving mysteriously and
with the prolongation of the case, the suspicion increased too.
example, one Twitter user who watched the series wrote: “I’m watching Carmel on Netflix and this s*** is WILD. I’m only up
to the 3rd episode but I’m convinced a family member killed her.The way they
acted after finding her is suspicious enough for me.”
Some people made up
their mind only in the third episode. Maybe our generation has watched a lot of
CSI because it’s actually bizarre to presume something so outrageous when you
know how tricky the case is, and that someone has already wasted five years of
their life in prison for nothing over this.
another one said: “Just finished
Carmel: Who killed Maria Marta on Netflix and I still can’t figure out who tf
killed her but her family is forsure very suspicious.”
What everyone keeps
pointing out is the fact that the family was acting strangely and that erupted
more suspicion. But, here’s what we think: Is there an established way to act
when your wife or family member dies mysteriously? Are you supposed to say
certain things or be overtly emotional in case your loved one dies? What is all of this about? Grief comes out in varied forms and if that’s leading to
suspicion, then that is a bit odd.
else tweeted: “Binged new true
crime doco Carmel on Netflix and wow the way the family messed with the crime
scene is mind blowing. I’m convinced the family are responsible otherwise there
was no need to hide evidence.”
Some people said that
the family was hiding the evidence. If that was the case, wouldn’t they be done
with the case by now? It’s been 20 years almost and the case is still on. By
now, they’ve been through more ups and downs than an entire season of Game of
there were some people, who just like the prosecution, couldn’t figure out what
happened to her: “Just finished
watching Carmel Who killed Maria Marta …. Very strange set up…. Hard to
tell who killed her…Her husband and family are definitely acting strange if
you ask me… But the question is why would they be involved in her
Finally, someone made some
sense. The final question is why. Why would the family want to kill her? The
entire setup was genuinely strange.
And all suspicion
against the family should go down the drain when Carlos himself keeps pleading
innocence and asking the system who killed her.
Below are some more
heartless reactions to the documentary:
This person has a lot of nerve to make such wild accusations underneath the trailer on YouTube. What if it’s all part of a conspiracy theory? What if the family genuinely had no idea and they believed what the doctors claimed? They only wanted to put her to peace for which a death certificate was required and that could be the only reason they hurried to get the death certificate. There are so many possibilities.
Another comment that
was discovered under the trailer on YouTube was this. Like, we get it – Donald
Trump is pathetic, but this person also looks pathetic. Why would you make a
joke out of someone’s murder like this?
Furthermore, even if
you think it was the family, there is still a chance that they’re all
completely innocent and the theory about the burglary was true. So now you’re
making fun of their grief and years of trauma.
Sounds like a CSI
storyline to you, doesn’t it?
Okay, this comment is
coming across as rude but they’ve got a point.
Finally, there’s someone
who gets it! This entire case was frustrating as hell. The case was handled
with stupidity and ego instead of responsibility and care. There was no logic
and the drug cartel angle only added more complications to the case.
Whatever may be the
reason, the case is a puzzle with endless pieces, and no one seems to find the
right piece at the right time. It’s like an onion, the more you peel it, the
closer you seem to get to the core.
Will we ever find the
core of this murder? Guess we’ll have to wait and find
