Rita Barberá received death threats hours before her fatal heart attack
28 November 2016 @ 23:00

JUST hours before dying from a heart attack in a Madrid hotel, Valencia's ex-mayoress Rita Barberá (PP) sent a text message to a high-ranking official in the interior ministry asking for help after allegedly receiving death threats.

According to Spanish national daily broadsheet El Mundo, Rita's SMS message to the unnamed ministry figurehead read: “Just to remind you of the latest death-threat letter I've received. This time they've given me until December 1. Hope to see you a few days later, xxxx.”

This was just hours before her sister María José, staying with her in room 315 of the Hotel Villa Real, found Rita was not breathing.

El Mundo details Rita's last 37 hours, including her penultimate meal on Monday night – potato omelette and JB whisky via room service – and that on Tuesday she felt ill so she went to bed without having dinner.
