The remains of a woman found in Marjan park in the city of Split are those of a Mexican tourist who was murdered, Croatian police said Sunday.
Selena Margarit Graciano Macedo's remains were found on
Saturday at the popular park, which is on a hill, a police spokesman told HTV.
An autopsy found that the 31-year-old Graciano Macedo was
murdered and investigators are searching for her killer, the police spokesman
Investigators are focusing on a group of homeless people
and drug addicts who live in cardboard dwellings around the park, HTV reported.
Graciano Macedo's body was found at the park after an
intense four-day search launched when her brother, Enmanuel Graciano, reported
the tourist missing.
Split's residents are distressed over the crime because it
is the first killing that anyone can recall in the tourist destination and
occurred in broad daylight at a popular recreation area, HTV and other media
No one saw or heard anything unusual during the time that
the killing happened, Croatian media said.
A resident saw the Mexican tourist in the park around 7:00

Investigators initially found a sandal and hat belonging
to the victim, but they later discovered evidence of a struggle along with her
backpack and a bloody knife.
