Murdered victim, 52, was ‘kidnapped and tortured’

POLICE officers are probing a horrific, suspected kidnapping and murder in Marbella, on the Costa del Sol, in which a woman survived.

A severely-beaten, unnamed couple, were found near a motorway slip road. The man, believed to be 52, from Ukraine, who had been thrown down a two-metre embankment with his legs bandaged, died from his injuries.

His Colombian partner, 54, was found wandering by the A-7 motorway, her face covered in blood.

Detectives believe they were abducted and tortured, before being dumped near the Costa del Sol Hospital.

The alarm was raised when a passing motorist stopped, after spotting the disorientated woman pleading for help.

She was taken to hospital with head injuries and “multiple wounds”, but medics were unable to revive the man.

Police officers confirmed that he had suffered heavy blows “over all of his body”.

Initial inquiries suggested that the pair were taken hostage during last weekend, and that the woman had pretended to be dead, before they were abandoned.
