Expat teacher found dead in suitcase did not kill herself

FORENSIC evidence shows that an English teacher who was found dead in a suitcase in 2010 could not have killed herself.

A court in Sevilla has heard that it was ‘impossible’ that American Laura Cerna took her own life.

Neighbour Antonio Gordillo, the man accused of murdering her, had claimed the teacher tried to stab him with a knife but fatally wounded herself in the process.

He claims he was then panicked into cutting up her body and dumping it in the Guadalquivir River.

Gordillo only confessed to the murder when police found blood in his apartment.

The trial continues in Sevilla.
