A woman has been found dead last night with a

strong blow to the head at the door of her home in Baiona (Pontevedra)

and the Civil Guard is looking for her ex-partner.

The armed institute, as confirmed to EFE, is investigating the case as an alleged case of sexist violence.

The Civil Guard learned of the event at 9:10 p.m. on Sunday and the agents verified upon arrival at the house that the deceased had a severe blow to the head.

The main hypothesis being considered, sources of the investigation have indicated to EFE, is that

the perpetrator of the events was the victim's ex-partner

, for which reason a search operation has been deployed together with the Local Police of the coastal municipality .

If it is confirmed that it is a case of sexist violence, it

would be the first in Galicia and the eighth so far this year
