A mum who lived in the UK has been found buried in a shallow grave thousands of miles from home, after the boyfriend she travelled to visit allegedly confessed to the crime on WhatsApp.

Honduran-Spanish national Karla Xiomara Zelaya Godoy was living and working in London and, last month, travelled to Lima to spend time with her Peruvian partner Jorge Alfredo Minaya Garay.

But after what seemed to be an idyllic trip, with excursions to the likes of Machu Picchu, the mum of an eight-year-old girl was found in a blue bag buried in a shallow grave.

Reports suggest that her Peruvian partner is thought to be on the run in the UK.

Karla reportedly last spoke to her mum on September 22 while she was in a taxi with Garay to visit his grandmother in north Lima.

She told her mum she would be flying to Spain the next day – but when her family didn't hear from her again they reported her missing.

Police then received an audio recording of Garay speaking on the phone to Karla's brother, Erick Zelaya.

In an alleged confession, he revealed he had murdered Karla and buried her body on his grandmother's property, located in a remote area of Carabayllo in Lima.

On Monday (October 10) police found Karla's remains in a blue bag buried in a shallow grave.

On October 1 Garay reportedly travelled to Chile before buying a ticket to London, where he lived with Karla, and, according to local media, is believed to have removed his possessions.

His grandmother reportedly confirmed he had been at her home but had left and did not say where he was going.

Speaking to local media at the time of her disappearance, her devastated brother Erick said: "She has many who love and miss her. She also has an eight-year-old daughter who misses her terribly.”

He said his sister and Garay had been together over a year and that Garay was a quiet man. He added that Karla had last called him using a Peruvian sim card she had bought there.

According to local media, Karla and Garay met at facility management company Pioneer-FM Ltd in the UK.
