Horror when Spanish police find the dissolved remains of a 22-year-old woman inside a wooden box hidden between two walls ‘after her ex-boyfriend confessed to killing her’… nine years after her disappearance
- Sibora Gagani disappeared 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 trapped behind a wall in the couple’s former apartment.
The Spanish police have found the remains of a young woman who had been missing for nine years behind a wall of her old apartment.
Sibora Gagani, 22, disappeared nine years ago shortly after breaking up with her boyfriend, but the Torremolinos police gave up looking for her when they found nothing.
However, the former couple were arrested last month for the murder of a more recent love interest, known only as Paula.
Arriving at the Torremolinos police station, he saw the photograph of the Italian-Albanian woman on a notice board and reportedly confessed to her murder, even saying that he had dissolved her remains in acid.
Soon after, the police reopened the investigation into the Italian-Albanian Sibora.
Italian-Albanian Sibora Gagani had been missing since 2014 before police discovered her body on June 6.

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

Human remains found inside and brought in for autopsy and identification have yet to be confirmed by DNA testing.
The apartment’s new tenants are said to be cooperating with investigators as the case continues.
