ALTHOUGH not apparently charged as yet, a man was arrested on September 10, by Guardia Civil investigating the case of British couple David and Jean Tarsey who were both shot in the head at their house in Xalo near Benidorm last March.
Whilst no formal comment has been received from the police it is understood that a gun was recovered from the suspect’s property and he is likely to be brought before a closed court this weekend.
The couple, both 77 were due to meet friends for Sunday lunch but the friends called police after going to the house when David and Jean failed to arrive.
According to Local Police, they had both been shot in the head and covered with a green raincoat, whilst their computer had been thrown into their swimming pool, presumably because the killer feared that there might be images of the murder caught by webcam.
The Tarseys had lived in Spain, initially in Denia since 1990 and David had dived for Britain in the Melbourne Olympic Games in 1956. Both appeared to have assimilated into the Spanish lifestyle although their villa was on the market as they wanted to move to Majorca to be near one of their sons.
