Cop kills herself and leaves suicide note apologising to her kids after ex-boyfriend posted revenge porn online

A COP killed herself and left a suicide note to her children after an ex-boyfriend posted revenge porn of her online.

Mum-of-two Belen San Roman, 26, shot herself at home in Bragado, Argentina on November 30.




She died in hospital after fighting for her life for four days.

In a letter to her family she included the password to her mobile phone, apparently hoping to lead the authorities to her ex-boyfriend who has since been detained.

Tobias Villarruel allegedly leaked revenge porn videos on the internet which resulted in San Roman being placed under investigation by Internal Affairs.

Her family claims that she killed herself because of the released footage and the subsequent investigation by the authorities into her conduct.

YOU’RE NOT ALONE

EVERY 90 minutes in the UK a life is lost to suicide.

It doesn't discriminate, touching the lives of people in every corner of society – from the homeless and unemployed to builders and doctors, reality stars and footballers.

It's the biggest killer of people under the age of 35, more deadly than cancer and car crashes.

And men are three times more likely to take their own life than women.

Yet it's rarely spoken of, a taboo that threatens to continue its deadly rampage unless we all stop and take notice, now.

That is why The Sun launched the You're Not Alone campaign.

The aim is that by sharing practical advice, raising awareness and breaking down the barriers people face when talking about their mental health, we can all do our bit to help save lives.

Let's all vow to ask for help when we need it, and listen out for others… You're Not Alone.

The cop’s mum Graciela Alvarez said on social media that Villarruel leaked the sensitive images to “harass” and “threaten” San Roman, which eventually “made her kill herself”.

The victim’s cousin Jorge San Roman also posted that there is no doubt the leaked images caused her death and that the justice system needs more laws to protect people in her position.

It is unclear if the ex-boyfriend has been formally charged with anything or if the authorities plan to seek a conviction.

Revenge porn was included in the Argentine Penal Code some years ago.

If someone is found guilty of illegally sharing sensitive material without consent, they can be sent to prison for between six months and two years.

However, the sentence can go up to between one and three years if aggravating circumstances exist such as if the suspect is found to have been dating the victim or if it was done for financial gain.

San Roman is reported to be the mother of two children aged eight and two.
