A forensic expert from the Arrecife Courts examines organic remains found by a citizen on January 5 on a beach in eastern Lanzarote to rule out or confirm that they belong to Romina Celeste Núñez, the Paraguayan girl disappeared on the island on New Year's Eve.
This has been confirmed this Wednesday by the Civil Guard, when reporting a new investigation related to this case, in which the Court of Instruction Number 1 of Arrecife (Lanzarote) has ordered the imprisonment of the husband of the disappeared, Raúl D.C., who is accused of alleged crimes of murder or murder and habitual abuse.

This precipitated his arrest, carried out on January 13. Raúl D.C. He then defended before the agents that he had not killed his wife, but acknowledged that he had tried to make his body disappear, first burning it in the garden of his house and then throwing his remains into the sea in various parts of the coast.
