The Foreign Ministry has confirmed that a Danish woman has died in Fuengirola, Spain. The Spanish newspaper El Pais reported that the woman’s Danish ex-husband has been arrested.
“We can confirm that a Danish woman has died in Fuengirola,” a Foreign Ministry spokesperson told TV2 News. “Since it is an ongoing case, we cannot comment further.”
The Foreign Ministry declined to comment on the alleged arrest of the woman’s ex-husband.
Fell or pushed?
According to El Pais, the woman died after falling down a flight of stairs at her home on Friday afternoon at around 4 pm.
The Spanish newspaper Sur wrote that local police believe the woman’s fall was not accidental and that her ex-husband may be behind her death.
The couple was separated a little over a year ago and police are investigating the estrangement as a possible motive.
Spanish police stressed to the media that everything is speculation at this point, but that the woman’s body did show signs of violence possibly unrelated to the fall.
