To suggest the right track was the man at the center of the suspicions. And now came the discovery that confirms the most chilling of hypotheses. Spanish police officers engaged in the search for Sibora Gagani, an Italian-Albanian girl who disappeared nine years ago in Torremolinos (Malaga), found a body in the house where the young woman had lived with her boyfriend at the time, the Italian Marco G. R. The body, not yet officially identified, was hidden where he himself indicated to look for her. Next to it, reports the Efe agency, there was also a bloody knife. After years without any news, the investigation into Sibora's disappearance reopened a few weeks ago.
The turning point came after his ex, now 45, was arrested last May 17 in a street in Torremolinos on a very heavy charge: that of having stabbed to death the 28-year-old Spanish Paula, his last partner, with whom he had also had a son. The man was intercepted by the police a few hours after the body of the former partner was found in the apartment where they had lived. It was then that Marco G. R also brought the attention of the investigators to the Gagani case, with which he had moved to Spain after meeting her in Italy almost 15 years ago. In the presence of some agents, the man has in fact hinted that he had killed the girl in 2014, and then hid her body by walling it up in the house where they lived before their relationship deteriorated. The suspect later retracted this version during the official interrogation, but the Spanish police still took seriously the lead he had indicated informally.
Although to get to the discovery of the body of Gagani, who was 22 years old at the time of the disappearance, several attempts were necessary. The decisive moment came yesterday. Several agents showed up at the house where the Italian-Albanian girl had lived with her alleged murderer equipped with an X-ray system that allowed them to thoroughly inspect hard-to-reach points of the building. What could be Gagani's body was found in a cavity built in one of the rooms of the house, in which in the meantime people who should be completely unrelated to the facts have moved.
