Where is Rosa Peral’s Ex-Husband Now? We discuss the convicted murderer and the whereabouts of her ex-husband, Ruben Carbó.

Netflix has released two productions that cover the shocking story of a love triangle that leads to tragedy and death. Burning Body, a dramatized series, and Rosa Peral’s Tapes both cover the events that surround the true-life crime that left one man dead.

The body of Pedro Rodriguez was found in his car.

The car had been set alight, making the body almost impossible to identify, and the investigation into the event would reveal a complicated and complex web of deceit involving police officers Rosa Peral and her co-worker and boyfriend Albert Lopez.

The investigation would lead to the arrest of Peral and Lopez and a murder conviction that would see Peral jailed for twenty-five years and Lopez receiving a twenty-year sentence. During the trial, each would blame the other, but the judge and jury would carefully examine all the events and try to form a picture that could explain what had happened.

In the documentary, the filmmakers were allowed access to Peral, and she would be given a chance to give her side of events.

Supporters of the ex-police officer would say she had been tried by the media, who were accused of sensationalizing the case and had often dwelled on the personal life of Peral, using events from her past, including her relationships, to depict her in a certain way.

However, at the heart of the situation are real people with real lives, and although the circumstances are extreme and not the norm, there are those in the gravity of the incident who are also unfairly swept up in the disaster. Peral was married at a young age to Ruben Carbo, and the couple would have two daughters together.

Her relationship with Albert Lopez would appear to be an early catalyst for the horror that was to come.

Ruben would allege that Rosa wanted sole custody of the girls and had taken steps to make sure that would happen. Rosa would file complaints against the father of her children and try to find damning evidence that swayed things in her favor.

After the murder of Pedro, they appeared to try and implicate him in the crime. He was cleared of all involvement.
