Boyfriend held by the Spanish police

A Danish woman was found dead in her hotel room in Torre del Mar near Malaga, Spain yesterday, according to the Foreign Ministry.

The woman’s boyfriend – who alerted the personnel at the hotel BQ Andalucia – is being held by the Spanish police.

“We received notification at 09:00 that there was a dead woman in one of our hotel rooms,” Andres Guerrero, the hotel manager at BQ Andalucia, told Ekstra Bladet tabloid yesterday.

“We then called an ambulance and the police. The police have closed off the room and are conducting investigations.”

According to the Spanish newspaper 20 Minutos, the body of the Danish woman has been removed to the forensics institute in Malaga in an attempt to establish the cause of death.

The deceased woman’s next of kin have been notified.
