This article looks at four statistically key factors for understanding the etiology of femicide in Spain: nationality of victims and victimaries, suicidality of victimaries and breakdown and aggression in couples. The analysis carried out shows that femicides in Spain contain specific socio-cultural factors other than those of the general population, given the over-representation of foreigners between victims and victims; whereas post-feminicide suicides exhibit a specific uniqueness because they have different quantitative characteristics from those occurring in the general population; and that the breakdown of partners and violence in couples preceding a femicide include specific and unique elements that do not exist in couples in general. All of this shows that femicide in Spain has considerable aetiological complexity, which must be taken into account if it is to be properly understood, and that it is difficult to accept a structural and monocausal explanation.
