A suspect in the death of American nanny Lauren Mann has been arrested at a Swiss refugee center, officials told NBC News on Monday.

Mann, a 25-year-old originally from Colorado, was found half naked in apartment in the Austrian city of Vienna last month. An autopsy showed she died from suffocation and officials said a “considerable” amount of blood was found at the scene.

A spokesperson for the Swiss Federal Ministry of Justice told NBC News that a man from the Gambia was arrested Thursday at a refugee center in the town of Kreuzlingen, around 20 miles from the Austrian border.
