According to sources close to the investigation, Álvaro had gone to the train station after spending the evening at a nightclub with a friend.

He was trying to catch a train that would take him back to Córdoba, according to Marca.

However, it appeared that he had problems with his ticket, presumably related to his mobile phone dying.

Reports indicate that this led Renfe employees to deny him access to the train without a valid ticket.
