Officers said they visited the home hours after Mila’s 21-year-old son, Nino Jay Loslos, reported that his mother had been missing for four days.
Loslos told authorities he had visited the residence his mother shared with her American live-in partner William Thomas Worth, after becoming concerned for her welfare.
Worth was home, but the septuagenarian expatriate allegedly claimed he did not know where Mila was. Loslos became suspicious after he smelled a ‘foul odor’ inside the house and reported to police.

During the argument, Loslos slipped and hit her head and Worth allegedly strangled her to death.
The authorities said the suspect had wounds on different parts of his body.
