Mother sets fire to her daughter’s gloating rapist

A Spanish mother has taken revenge on the man who raped her 13-year-old daughter at knifepoint by dousing him in petrol and setting him alight. He died of his injuries in hospital on Friday.

Antonio Cosme Velasco Soriano, 69, had been sent to jail for nine years in 1998, but was let out on a three-day pass and returned to his home town of Benejúzar, 30 miles south of Alicante, on the Costa Blanca.

While there, he passed his victim’s mother in the street and allegedly taunted her about the attack. He is said to have called out “How’s your daughter?”, before heading into a crowded bar.

Shortly after, the woman walked into the bar, poured a bottle of petrol over Soriano and lit a match. She watched as the flames engulfed him, before walking out.

    Standing O! The most satisfying way to stop a bully is to kick the holy living shiite out of it (sic). Next best is burning it (sic).

    Will someone help me with the math here?
    “Antonio Cosme Velasco Soriano, 69, had been sent to jail for nine years in 1998…”
    Hmm it is 2011. He was sent to jail in 1998 for 9 years so he should have been released say 4 years ago or 2007. Really wish that we could have a few facts on articles so that all the pieces fit together. It is distracting!
