GUARDIA CIVIL officers in Spain have arrested their main suspect in the murder case after a woman’s body was found in a landfill site.

Officers arrested the Mauritanian at Madrid’s Adolfo Suaréz airport as he attempted to board a flight to his home country.

The un-named man is thought to have been trying to flee justice after ‘inconsistencies’ in his story led him to become chief suspect in a story that shocked the seaside town of Roquetas del Mar in Spain’s Almeria province.

The body of a woman was found by a worker at the landfill site at Gador on September 27. A post mortem examination revealed she had died a violent death. She had no personal effects, which made her identification difficult.

But at the same time Guardia Civil in Roquetas were investigating a report of the disappearance of a Moroccan woman made by her partner – the same man who has now been arrested.

The cases were linked and a positive identification was made.

Guardia Civil found inconsistencies in the boyfriend’s story and on further investigation discovered the victim was a prostitute and the man her pimp.

A later search of his home found evidence which police say links him to the murder.

The arrested man has been charged with murder, gender violence and making a false report.
