Policeman stabbed to death during 'suitcase murder' arrest
A POLICE officer has died in Valencia after being stabbed whilst arresting a suspect in a 'body in a bag' case in the city.
Blas Gámez, 51, a sub-inspector in the National Police homicide unit, sustained two knife-wounds in the heart during the scuffle on the C/ Sueca and, despite paramedics' attempts to revive him, lost his life within minutes.
He was said to have been arresting a man thought to have been behind the death of another whose body was chopped up and stuffed in a suitcase dumped at the Avenida Peris y Vallero-C/ Cabo Jubi crossroads, found in the early hours of this morning (Tuesday).
It was the suspected murderer who killed the officer.
Gámez's colleague immediately opened fire on the suspect, who was shot dead.
According to Valencia police, the suitcase contained the torso of a man whose identity is not yet known.
His head and all four limbs were missing and the trunk presented signs of stab-wounds, although it is not clear whether this is how he died.
An on-the-beat policeman found the case at around midnight and decided to inspect it, calling for back-up when he realised what was inside.
