She did not knock on the door (or say): ‘Edgardo, what are you doing?, stop that.’ He did what he wanted. I remember that his mother told him: ‘That little boy will one day ruin your life, Edgardo.'»

During the Telemundo special, Roselló explained that Edgardo was very controlling about letting them drink, however, that night Menéndez made sure that he drank the full glass of wine that he offered him, which he believes was drugged. «There I began to get dizzy, I began to see everything cloudy, out of focus. There I felt someone carrying me, and that person was José Menéndez who was carrying me and was taking me to his room to rape me.»

He said that he was aware of what was happening, however he was unable to do anything to stop it. «I couldn’t move, I couldn’t react, I don’t know what he put in my drink. There when I got to the room I was completely unconscious but I felt, it was a type of drug in which you cannot move but you feel what they are doing to you.» He finally added, «And it was horrible later when I got to the hotel, I was bleeding and Edgardo didn’t even take me to the doctor because he knew someone was going to find out.»
