GRANADA — A murder hunt has been launched after a young woman was strangled and her body dumped in a lake.

Beatriz Collado Ramírez, 27, rang her boyfriend to say there were two suspicious men nearby.

The last words he heard were those of a mystery man saying: "Hang up the phone."

The boyfriend called her family who alerted the police.

Two hours later, her body was found floating in a lake.

Civil Guard officers said it appeared Beatriz had been forced to hang up the phone.

There were no signs of violent attack on her body.

But there were a few marks on her neck, showing she might have been asphyxiated.

Her friend Maria Luisa, with whom Beatriz had been jogging,  had gone to talk to her boyfriend in a car nearby when they heard screams.

Beatriz had lived in Maracena, a village near Granada.

She was described by friends and workmates as "sporting, intelligent and tough".

She had planned to marry her boyfriend.
 
Police have launched a murder hunt for her killer, but said she did not appear to have had any enemies.
