A British woman was found dead in a hotel room in Switzerland following a 'sex game gone wrong', according to her boyfriend's claims.
Anna Florence Reed, 22, was found in the bathroom of the Ramada La Palma au Lac in Locarno after shouting was heard from guests who were also staying in the £200-per-night luxury hotel.
Anna and her German boyfriend checked into the hotel on Monday and her body was found at 7am on Tuesday morning.
According to Corriere del Ticino, her 29-year-old boyfriend has been arrested and told police that Anna died during a sex game.
Media in the Italian-speaking city reported that shouting was heard coming from the room during the night. A night porter then intervened after guests voiced their concerns.
Her body was then discovered the following day and paramedics unsuccessfully attempted to revive her. She was declared dead at the scene.
A post-mortem has been carried out and, according to the Mirror, it has been determined that the 22-year-old passed away from suffocation or asphyxiation.
Prosecutor Petra Canonica Alexakis told Corriere del Ticino that investigators are considering a charge of murder or culpable homicide.
Swiss police said in a statement: "A 29-year-old German man has been arrested and a file has been sent to the local prosecutor with an allegation of pre-intentional homicide.
"He is being held at the Farera judicial prison in Lugano Cadro district."
A spokesperson for the Foreign Office told the Mirror Online: "Our consular staff are assisting the family of a British woman following her death in Switzerland and are in contact with the Swiss and UK police."
