THE Guardia Civil have reported today (Wednesay) that organic remains have been found on the coast of Lanzarote, which are being analysed to see if they belong to missing Romina Celeste Nuñez, 29.
According to the Armed Institute, a member of the public found a ‘questionable bag’ on a beach on the east coast of Lanzarote on January 5, and disposed of it in a nearby container of solid waste.
They reported the bag to the Guardia Civil 10 days later, on January 15, after news broke out surrounding Romina’s disappearance.
According to a statement given by the Guardia Civil, the investigation team were able to locate a container that was transferred to the Costa of Teguise.
Each bag found in the container was meticulously searched resulting in the findings of the reported bag with organic remains.
The investigation’s researchers sent the bag to the forensic authorities of the Arrecife Courts in order to determine if the remains are of human or animal nature.
Consequently, if results indicate that the bag contains human remains, the necessary procedures will be carried out to determine the origin of the DNA and if it corresponds to Romina Nuñez.
The latest discoveries have surfaced after Romina Celeste Nuñez was reported missing in Lanzarote on New Year’s Eve.
Romina’s partner, Raul DC, was later arrested after police gathered information from a phone call between Raul and a family member, confessing that he has disposed of his wife’s body by ‘throwing the corpse into the sea’.
Raul DC claims that he did not kill his wife but had found her dead after returning to the family home on New Year’s Eve.
The investigation continues…
