National Police force officers are investigating the circumstances surrounding the death of a 28-year-old woman, whose body was found today (17 May) in a Torremolinos building.

Police were searching for her partner as the alleged perpetrator of the crime, so the protocol was activated for a possible case of gender violence.

The incident was discovered this Wednesday morning in the Carihuela area. According to the initial investigations, the victim - a Spanish woman - was allegedly stabbed by her partner, who she lived with.

The man, an Italian national, was detained after a manhunt involving a large number of police officers was mounted in the area.
