Tenerife Beheading, The man accused of beheading a British grandmother holiday island of Tenerife on Friday was on the run from the police when the brutal attack was carried out.
The police had warned was a danger to the public and should not be allowed on the streets, but was released on bail after a short stay in a psychiatric clinic.
Three days before Jennifer Mills-Westley, a retired 60-year-old from Norfolk, was hacked to death in a supermarket, a judge ordered the detention of vagrants Bulgarian allegedly killed her and walked with her head down the street.
On May 10 Nelson D? Az Fr? As judge issued an arrest warrant Deyan Deyanov, 28, after having met the bail conditions after an attack in which the front teeth hit his victim with a stone.
The unprovoked assault against a security guard patrolling on the beach in the popular resort of Los Cristianos was held on 4 February.
When Deyanov was arrested for that crime to the police boasted that he was “a prophet of God on earth” and was “planning something big.”
According to a local source of a police report described it as “a dangerous individual who should stay off the streets.”
He was sent to a psychiatric unit in the hospital of Our Lady of Candelaria in the capital of Santa Cruz Island, but was released on bail, a decision by the judge after consulting doctors.
The Bulgarian was supposed to report to court every fortnight, but did not appear and the magistrate judge’s number four Arona issued the warrant on May 10.
But police could not locate the man, a habitual drug user who gave his address as the marina promenade side of the busy season.
In fact, I used to spend the night in an abandoned building on the beachfront promenade and was well known locally for his aggressive behavior towards tourists.
Jose Alberto Gonzalez Reveron, the mayor of Arona, the municipal area that includes Los Cristianos, said more efforts were made to stop Deyanov.
“This person was well known to police and had been involved in altercations very many,” he said.
“I dare not speak of negligence of the police, but everyone likes to have been arrested before. Should have been in a psychiatric hospital.”
Manuel Reveron, Councilman Security Council, said: “The police were actively seeking Deyanov but were unable to locate him because he had no fixed abode.
“In my opinion there should have been discharged from psychiatric hospital after the earlier attack.”
“We carried out our duties and handed it to court, do not know what happened next. If it had been differently this terrible crime could have been avoided.”
A spokesman for the hospital of Our Lady of Candelaria Deyanov confirmed that he had been patient, but declined further comment citing confidentiality reasons.
Deyanov appeared before the investigating judge Carmen Rosa del Pino in the Court of Instruction number two in Arona on the night of Saturday, provisionally charged with murder.
He is being held in the psychiatric unit of the prison Tenerife II, undergoing psychiatric evaluation.
The body of Mrs. Mills-Westley, who had lived on the island for at least ten years, is expected to be repatriated to the UK this week.
The road safety officer pulled a mother of two daughters and had five grandchildren.
