Alert of the disappearance of Nerea Ael.

The National Police has taken a decisive step to clarify the crime of Nerea Ael, the young woman from Ourense whose body was located last September in an abandoned village in the town of Barbads. After months of investigations under total secrecy, EL MUNDO has learned that this Monday the one who was in recent times the main suspect has been arrested and that everything indicates that it is a new case of gender violence.

Investigation sources have confirmed that the detainee was the last known partner of the young woman and that at the time of the disappearance he was in the crosshairs of the investigators. At the moment, it has not transpired what crime is attributed to him, but I do know that he is the main suspect in the violent death of the young woman.

This newspaper has not been able to confirm his identity, but it does know that it is a man in his early 30s who is currently in prison for another reason and this Monday he was arrested and transferred to the Commissioner of Ourense to testify for these facts.

The case is under summary secrecy in the Examining Court number 3 de Ourense and details of what happened have hardly come to light. However, this newspaper has been able to confirm the arrest and that this same Monday a reconstruction of the events was carried out that was crucial to shore up the suspicions of the investigators.

Nerea disappeared in Ourense in February 2020, when she was 26 years old and her lifeless body was located seven months later by some hikers in the town of Muios. The forensic tests carried out confirmed that the remains belonged to the disappeared young woman and that she was the victim of a violent death, possibly a crime, although the exact cause of death has not been confirmed due to the zeal of the court and investigators to maintain all the inquiries under secret.

Since then, researchers from the Specialized and Violent Crime Unit (UDEV) and the Family and woman unity (UFAM) of the Ourense Police Station continued to investigate the events, but no progress in the investigations had emerged.

Until this Monday, when the judge of the Court of Instruction number 3 of Ourense, a room specialized in Violence Against Women, authorized a reconstruction of the last moments of the young woman’s life. Once this police procedure was completed, the arrest of the suspect was confirmed.

The young woman’s family already denounced in recent times that in recent times Nerea Ael moved in marginal areas of the city and was related to people her family did not know. One of them was this young man now detained, who has a long criminal record and had already been in prison in the past. Recently, he had re-entered prison.
