Sex game to blame for UK woman's hotel room death?
The woman who died in a Ticino hotel room could have been a victim of a sex game gone wrong.
She’s been named as UK citizen 22-year-old Anna Florence Reed. She was found in the bathroom in a room at the Hotel La Palma au Lac in Locarno on Tuesday morning.
A 29-year-old German man, named as Marc Schatzle, who lives in Zurich is in custody.
Investigators say the victim appears to have been suffocated.
Hotel staff say the couple were arguing loudly during the night and a porter was sent up to quieten them down.
Local press says the man reported the death to the staff in the lobby the next morning. He claims the death is an accident during a sex game.
Investigations are continuing.
