Mexican police have confirmed the discovery of the naked body of a German woman, bearing marks of a sharp weapon, in a house in the Caribbean resort of Playa del Carmen, justice officials said Tuesday.

A neighbor alerted the police after finding 23-year-old Carolina Brust dead on Monday in a residential area of the resort near Cancun, according to the Quintana Roo state prosecutor's office.

The police opened an investigation and took a statement from a Mexican man believed to have been the woman's boyfriend.

A local justice official said that the couple had been living together for around one month.
