British teacher allegedly beat girlfriend to death then killed himself in crash



A British music teacher allegedly beat his girlfriend to death then killed himself hours later in a car wreck in Spain.

Caspar Veres, 28, is believed to have killed French partner Delphine Cochet, 41, hours before deliberately ramming his van into a truck near Gibraltar on Sept. 25, The Sun reported.

Cochet’s body had also been recovered from the crashed vehicle, but it was later determined that she had died hours earlier.

“The position of the woman’s body in the vehicle and the smell it was giving off gave rise to initial suspicions about how she had died,” a source told the outlet.

An autopsy revealed Cochet had suffered a skull fracture, while Veres died instantly in the head-on collision, the outlet reported.

“The suspected killer will never face justice for his crime but police and the courts are treating this as a murder-suicide,” the source said.

Police said Veres had been awaiting trial for attacking two cops Aug. 6 at a station in the fishing village of Barbate.

Cochet told authorities at the time that he had stopped taking medication for an undisclosed mental disorder.

The music teacher also may have been struggling to cope with the country’s COVID-19 lockdown measures, posting a video of himself singing about quarantine blues, according to the report.

“Restlessness is brewing and I’m starting to feel mean … in quarantine,” he sang while playing the guitar.
