Spain - Alicante - Portrait of Laura Perales Rubio, 64. On a warm morning in May 2012, Laura Perales Rubio was standing at the edge of a common grave in the cemetery of Alicante, surrounded by policemen, archeologists, judges, public prosecutors and photographers. The grave containing the body of Javier, her newborn son who had died prematurely in July 1980, was being opened. It was a tense and emotional moment, but Perales Rubio was confident she was about to close a chapter of her life that had tormented her for more than 30 years. Her hopes were dashed the moment the shroud was unveiled, revealing the arm of an adult.
