Costa Levante News - - FRONT PAGE -

By Joe Wick­man THE MAN who sup­pos­edly stabbed his part­ner to death in Septem­ber in Borriol was fi­nally ar­rested in Argentina last week­end.

Guardia Civil of­fi­cers found the life­less body of Eva Bou on Septem­ber 7 af­ter her rel­a­tives warned they had not been able to con­tact her for sev­eral days. The au­topsy then con­firmed she had been dead for around five days, and her for­mer part­ner, José Luis Gal­lego, went miss­ing and be­came the prime sus­pect.

Po­lice in­ves­ti­ga­tions re­vealed that Gal­lego caught a plane to Buenos Aires on the days fol­low­ing the mur­der, and an in­ter- na­tional ar­rest war­rant was is­sued, mo­bil­is­ing In­ter­pol, Ar­gen­tinian Fed­eral Po­lice and Guardia Civil of­fi­cers to find the fugi­tive.

Gal­lego was ar­rested on Satur­day, 80 days af­ter Eva was found stabbed to death and coin­ci­den­tally on the In­ter­na­tional Day Against Gen­der Vi­o­lence.

The author­i­ties man­aged to grad­u­ally nar­row down his pos­si­ble where­abouts to a town in the north of the coun­try, then iden­ti­fied venues he vis­ited, and fi­nally com­pleted the po­lice op­er­a­tion with Span­ish po­lice of­fi­cers who flew over to help ar­rest the ac­cused.

Con­tin­ued from font page The brother of the vic­tim ex­plained the fam­ily was ‘sat­is­fied’ with the news, and added that ‘now that the po­lice have done their job, we just have to wait for him to be tried and serve his sen­tence’.
