  • National Police are investigating the circumstances after the discovery in Torremolinos

National Police officers are investigating the death of a man whose body has been found with at least one gunshot wound inside a van in the centre of Torremolinos, on the Costa del Sol.

Emergency services were alerted just before 9am this Monday morning (19 April). Several members of the public called to say that there was a dead man inside the vehicle.

Local and National Police patrols were quickly on the scene and found the distinctive yellow van parked on Calle Madre del Buen Consejo in the centre of the town.

According to a neighbour, the vehicle had been parked there for several days. He claimed to have heard some bangs during the early morning, although he did not think they were gunshots.

Police have cordoned off the area and they are inspecting the van and area in search of clues that will help to clarify what happened.

At the moment no theories have been ruled out, although different sources consulted suggest that it could be a murder and the body has received at least one gunshot.
