Spain detains German murder fugitive, recovers toddler
Spanish police have arrested a German fugitive suspected of slitting his girlfriend’s throat, and have safely recovered the couple’s 18-month-old toddler. The unidentified man was picked up at a block of short-stay apartments in Lloret de Mar, a seaside resort, where he was hiding with the baby boy, police said. He had been on the run since German police found the body of his 20-year-old girlfriend inside plastic garbage bags at the couple’s apartment in the town of Freyung, at the end of October. Police said the man recently got a “macabre” tattoo inked on his upper arm with the name of his deceased girlfriend, her birthday as well the suspected date of her murder, beside a cross along with the words “Thank you for everything” in Spanish.
