Description

Ángel Manuel Facal Soto was the co-owner of a firm of tugboats operating out of Pasajes. The business had been founded by his father, who was originally from Galicia. He had found a job in the company for his son, who was aged 42 and had issues with drugs, according to his siblings. “He was not a happy person”, they said. On the evening of 26 February 1985, while Ángel was eating a roll at the door of the Náutico bar, two individuals on a motorbike stopped alongside him. They fired a single shot, killing him. The killer was ETA member Idoia López Riaño, alias “The Tigress”, who was subsequently found guilty of 23 murders and sentenced to over 2,000 years in prison. She was released in 2017.
