He is aged between 40 and 50 and met the victim on social media at the end of last year.

She later left her job at a clothing company after reportedly receiving financial support from the suspect.

According to the authorities, the victim’s body was found with signs and violence.

Her remains were found after concerned friends and relatives went to the house.

Medellín mayor Federico Gutiérrez said: “It has been sad and painful to learn about another femicide.

“The killer is most likely a foreign citizen. He has already been identified and has left the country.

“We hope an arrest warrant will be issued soon and enforced through an Interpol notice.”
