A man of 70 years of age has been arrested after having confessed to the Civil Guard in Arganda del Rey (Madrid) to have murdered his wife and to have thrown the corpse in a swamp of Cordoba, as sources of the Benemérita have confirmed to Europa Press this Saturday.
At the same time, on the afternoon of this Friday, the lifeless body of a woman with signs of violence was located in the swamp of El Arenoso, near Montoro (Córdoba). Sources of the Civil Guard have explained to Europa Press that there is a coincidence between the physical features described by the now detainee about the murdered woman, and the aforementioned corpse found in the swamp of El Arenoso, near Montoro (Córdoba), but that this relationship will be confirmed depending on the result of the autopsy and the identification being made by the Legal Medicine Institute of Córdoba.
Specific, the confessed author of the crime appeared last Friday, at around 11:30 pm, at the post of the Civil Guard of Arganda del Rey, municipality in which he and his wife reside, where he confessed to killing his 67-year-old wife.
There was an active search device on her since October 12, when her husband reported her disappearance. The man is now being held as a detainee in the Civil Guard, and there are no previous complaints about gender violence or mistreatment, according to the same sources have informed.
Regarding the woman found dead in Montoro, her body was extracted from the swamp on Friday at 2:00 pm by neighbors of the area and showed signs of violence.
