Missing Cuenca women's bodies found, but no sign of ex-boyfriend
13 August 2015 @ 14:07

THE BODIES of two young women who went missing in the province of Cuenca a week ago have been found near a river, and the ex-boyfriend of one of them remains untraceable.

Marina Okarynska, 24, originally from Ukraine, had gone to her former partner Sergio Morante Garcés' house in the hamlet of Chillarón on Wednesday to collect her personal belongings, accompanied by her friend Laura del Hoyo Chamón, 26.

The car belonging to one of the women – it has not been confirmed which – was found near the remote country home hours later, but there was no sign of the girls themselves, or Marina's ex-boyfriend.

Police from several provinces brought in sniffer-dogs and combed the family estate yesterday (Wednesday), including searching several wells.

A number of Sergio's immediate family members were taken in for questioning at abount 16.30hrs.

Hours later, a local resident found the women's bodies lying face-down on the banks of the river Huécar, three kilometres from the village of Palomera.

They were half-buried and coated with limestone dust, as well as showing signs of burns, hinting that their murderer had intended to destroy the evidence by setting fire to the bodies.

A post-mortem will be carried out today to find out how they died.
