National Police officers are investigating the deaths of two people, a woman and a man, whose bodies were found this Friday morning (12 January) in the Malaga province town of Torre del Mar, on the eastern strip of the Costa del Sol. Apparently, she was found with signs of asphyxiation, while the man was allegedly found hanged at the home of the woman's son.

The 57-year-old woman, Ana, was found dead inside her home in Calle Doctor Fleming, where she lived with her partner. Both were of Romanian origin, although they had been living and working in Spain for many years. According to sources, it was her son who located her body in the building, which he went to after learning that she had not shown up at her workplace.

Shortly after this first discovery, the body of a man was found in the local area near the house. The police believe that he is the woman's partner and that he may have taken his own life, although his identity has not yet been fully confirmed.

Apparently, the man hanged himself in the house of the woman's 34-year-old son, who he used to help with the renovation of the property. According to what a family member told the media, it was a neighbour who alerted him when he found the body in the garage.

There has been speculation about a possible case of gender violence, but police have urged caution, as the removal of the bodies and the visual inspection of the scene has not yet been completed.
