This attractive police officer has died several days after she reportedly shot herself in the head amid family claims she did it when an ex-boyfriend released revenge porn of her online.

Local policewoman and mother-of-two Belen San Roman, 26, died at the San Luis Municipal Hospital in the city of Bragado located in the Argentine province of Buenos Aires on Friday 4th December after spending several days fighting for her life.

According to local reports, San Roman shot herself with her service weapon when she was alone at home in Bragado on 30th November.

She reportedly 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.

The suspect, named as the victim’s ex-boyfriend 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.

The cop’s mum Graciela Alvarez said on social media that Villarruel leaked the sensitive images of San Roman to “harass” and “threaten” her 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.
