POLICE have confirmed that a family of four has been found dead in Gibraltar.
The Royal Gibraltar Police said a 31-year-old British man, a 37-year-old woman, a four-year-old girl and a six-week-old baby were found dead this morning.
Detectives and forensic officers have been working in the flat since early this morning and the area remains cordoned-off.
Police found the tragic scene after responding to a neighbour’s screams in Boschetti’s Steps, just after 11am today (Monday March 30). Police said: “Presently, we are not looking for anyone involved in this very unfortunate event, but the investigation will be thorough and detailed drawing on the expertise of other professionals.”
Reportedly the family had been in Spain for some time and had only been in Gibraltar for a few days before their deaths.
“At this present moment, a full investigation is being conducted by officers of the Serious Crime Unit to establish the cause surrounding the untimely deaths of this young family,” said the police spokesperson.
The RGP are encouraging anyone who may have information or be able to support the investigation to contact the Duty Officer of the Royal Gibraltar Police.
