DETECTIVES investigating the death of a woman found stabbed to death in a Bournemouth flat have narrowed their search for clues to three town centre locations.

As reported in the Daily Echo, police launched a murder probe after 34-year-old Stela Marisabel Domador-Kuzma died at an address in Richmond Gardens.

Police were called to Richmond Hill at 5am on Sunday after a man was found with stab wounds to his leg.

Following enquiries, they discovered Miss Domador-Kuzma's body. A knife was seized from the scene.

The victim fled Venezuela three years ago in search of a better life. Formal identification has not yet taken place, although Miss Domador-Kuzma's family are aware.

The injured man, who is 20 years old and from Bournemouth, has been arrested on suspicion of murder. He was taken to hospital. It is understood that he was known to the victim.

Detective Inspector Richard Dixey of Dorset Police's major crime investigation team said: “A full and detailed investigation remains ongoing to establish the circumstances around Stela's death and our thoughts are with her family at this extremely difficult time.

"Following our initial enquiries, the timings that we are focusing on in particular are between 7.30pm on Saturday evening and 5am on Sunday morning in the area of Richmond Hill, Richmond Gardens and Dalkeith Lane steps.

"We would like anyone who saw or heard anything suspicious or out of the ordinary to get in touch."

Anyone with information should contact police urgently via or by calling 101, quoting 8:125.

Det Insp Dixey said: “The public can expect to see a continued increased police presence in the area and officers from the neighbourhood policing team can be approached with any concerns.”

A cordon remains in place at Richmond Gardens while crime scene investigators continue to examine the scene.

Officers are also carrying out house-to-house visits and making CCTV enquiries.
