Horror as Spanish cops find dissolved remains of woman, 22, inside wooden crate hidden between two walls ‘after her ex-boyfriend confessed to killing her’… nine years after she vanished
- Sibora Gagani went missing in 2014 shortly after breaking up with her partner
- Spanish police had abandoned the search until the boyfriend’s arrest last month
- Investigators found remains stuck behind a wall at the pair’s old flat
Spanish police have found the remains of a young woman who had been missing for nine years behind a wall at her old flat.
Sibora Gagani, 22, went missing nine years ago shortly after breaking up with her boyfriend, but Torremolinos police gave up their search for her after finding nothing.
However, the former partner was detained last month for the murder of a more recent love-interest, known only as Paula.
On arrival at Torremolinos police station he saw the Italian-Albanian woman’s picture on a noticeboard, and reportedly confessed to her murder, including saying that he had dissolved her remains in acid.
Shortly after, the police reopened the investigation into Italian-Albanian Sibora.

Marco Gaio Romeo, Sibora’s boyfriend shortly before her disappearance, was detained on May 17 in relation to the murder of Paula, a 28-year-old from Italy, after being seen entering and leaving her home.
Paula was allegedly stabbed 14 times by Romeo; father to one of her three children.
Despite not admitting to Paula’s murder, the 45-year-old reportedly spontaneously confessed to the earlier crime after just seeing Sibora’s picture still on the wall after she went missing on July 7 2014.
According to a central government official’s statement, he claimed to have dissolved Sibora’s remains in acid before walling them up in a box.
Members of the Specialized and Violent Crime Unit of the National Police inspected the attic apartment where the couple lived together before the disappearance.
The flat, which had already been searched in the original investigation, was located in the neighborhood of El Calvario in Torremolinos.
After noticing that the lines through floor tiles either side of what was believed to be just one wall were inconsistent, officers used an X-ray system to detect a wooden crate hidden between two walls.
Inside the box the body was distributed between bin bags, with police also finding a bouquet of flowers.

Human remains found inside and taken for autopsy and identification are yet to have their identity confirmed by DNA tests.
