They find the body of a murdered woman in an apartment in Elche in the middle of Christmas

The National Police Corps in Elche is investigating a murder committed between Christmas Eve and Christmas in a house in the Los Palmerales neighborhood. The victim is a woman who has a gunshot wound. At this time, there have been no arrests in connection with this event and the investigators are scrupulously silent.

At the moment his identity and age are unknown. The removal of the body took place last weekend, in the presence of the judicial commission. The court has opened an ex officio investigation and the proceedings have been declared secret by the court. The woman’s body was transferred to the Forensic Anatomical Institute to perform an autopsy, at the moment it is still there waiting for what happened to be known.

The agents are at this time trying to locate the partner of this woman, for now without success, which keeps all hypotheses open; among them, that it is a sexist crime. As long as the male is not located, it will be impossible to advance the investigation. Likewise, the police officers have interviewed the neighbors of the building where the woman lived to try to find out what happened. At the moment, there is very little information that allows agents to advance in the investigation.

The newspaper has confirmed that the death was caused by a gunshot at a very short distance, inside the house. Everything points to the fact that it could be a weapon of illegal possession. The circumstances in which the Police Station learned of these events and proceeded its agents to go to the homes are unknown. Some sources suggest that it would be an unstructured family in the neighborhood and that the crime has been known through a call. The Judicial Police brigade has in charge of investigations.

The Los Palmerales neighborhood, where the crime has occurred, is a place of preferential attention by the Elche City Council and the Generalitat Valenciana because it is a very humble area, where there are many healthcare needs. Just a week ago, the mayor and the Minister of Housing came to him to see how the demolition of two staircases on Llimoner Street, where occupiers lived, had occurred, and the construction of a new housing block was announced that will be located next to the City of Justice.

This is the second murder registered this month in the province. Days before Christmas, on December 18, a man surrendered to the Torrevieja Civil Guard and confessed to the murder of his partner, a 39-year-old Oriolana. In October, also in Torrevieja, a woman was dismembered by her partner. Some parts of his body, such as the head, were not found. So far this year, there have been six sexist murders in the Valencian Community, half of them in the province of Alicante. In the absence of confirmation by the State Security Forces and Bodies, this could be the seventh so far this year.
