Ex-husband arrested

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.
