This attractive police officer has reportedly shot herself in the head and remains in critical condition as her family claims she did it after an ex-boyfriend released revenge porn videos of her online.

The shocking incident occurred in the city of Bragado located in the Argentine province of Buenos Aires where local police woman and mother-of-two Belen San Roman, 26, shot herself with her service weapon in her home, according to reports on 1st December.

San Roman left a note saying goodbye to her kids and apologising 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.

According to local media, San Roman was a victim of revenge porn after the suspect, who has not been named, released intimate pictures and videos on social media which quickly spread.

The revenge porn incident lead to an investigation by Internal Affairs, however, there have been no official reports on whether she was going to be sanctioned for the leaking of the sensitive material.

She remains in critical condition and is being kept at an ICU in the San Luis Municipal Hospital where she also underwent surgery after her body was found by colleagues.

The victim’s family said they believe San Roman’s alleged attempted suicide was because of the released footage and the subsequent investigation by Internal Affairs.

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, however they were not home when she reportedly shot herself in the head.
