Police have launched a murder hunt for the killer of a female exchange student from Spain, stabbed to death in a "frenzied" knife attack.

The body of Margarita Martin Zamorano, 22, was found on Saturday by friends who shared her student digs on Warwick University campus in Coventry. There was no sign of a forced entry and police believe she knew her killer.

The attack took place in the kitchen and police believe the killer used a kitchen knife. Det Supt Bob Rankin, of West Midlands Police, said they wanted to interview a man seen at Miss Zamorano's home shortly before the killing. He was aged about 25, 5ft 6ins tall, and slim.

Margarita was just three months through a one-year politics exchange course with a university in Madrid and was due to travel home to Spain for Christmas.
