A 40-year-old British man was found dead in the Martiánez ravine in Tenerife on July 13 of this year and now three young suspects have been arrested.
The National Police from Los Realejos-Puerto de la Cruz have interviewed three young people from La Orotava, one for causing the man’s death and the others for not reporting the incident.
According to reports from the National Police, upon arrest, the three admitted their guilt and gave a detailed explanation of the events of that night. Following attendance at a party, the person responsible for the death of the British man, his girlfriend and another man went to a bar in Puerto de la Cruz where they fell into a minor altercation with the victim.
At about 3am they saw him again and a more violent clash developed which resulted in the British man falling into the ravine and dying from his injuries.
The girlfriend and the other witness confirmed that they had been present at the time and saw what had happened but had not called the emergency services as they were scared and instead departed, leaving the body at the bottom of the ravine.
Two of them were released awaiting charges whilst the main suspect has been released on bail.
