SPANISH police announced experts, who have been running autopsy tests on the body of two-year-old Julen since 8.30 this morning, claim the toddler had a “clean fall” down the borehole he disappeared into almost two weeks ago.

Alfonso Rodriguez Gomez de Celis, a representative of the Junta de Andalucia, explained: “The position of the body suggests that Julen free-fell by up to 71 meters, and that there he came against a dirt floor. The well from that level was full of earth.”

The official added: “There was also earth on top of Julen.”

Spanish media are reporting this means the borehole may only have been 71-metres deep, not the 110-metres initially thought.

After a 13-day rescue effort, members of the Guardia Civil were final able to enter the 25-diametre hole at around 1.25 this morning where they found the toddler’s lifeless body.

Several hours later, at around 4.20am workers were finally able to move the Julen’s body out of the well and to a funeral home in El Palo.

The boy’s parents, Vicky Garcia and Jose Rosello, are also reported to have travelled to the funeral home.

  1. FROM WHAT THE AUTOPSY HAS REVEALED “JULEN” HAD A ‘CLEAN FALL’ 71 METRES – NOT 110 AS ORIGINALLY MENTIONED. HE LANDED ON EARTH THAT FILLED UP THE LOWER PART OF THE WELL AND
    THERE WAS NO WATER. HE WOULDN’T OF DROWNED BUT MOST DEFINITELY THAT FALL WOULD OF
    KILLED HIM INSTANTLY.
    YOU MAY WONDER WHY A STRANGER IN THE UK IS WRITING THIS? I’VE NO ONE TO TALK TO – AND JULEN HAS BEEN ON MY MIND SINCE THE ACCIDENT. IT HELPS ME – AS I HOPE IT DOES YOU TOO – TO KNOW HE DIDN’T SUFFER.
    I SEND MY LOVE TO ALL. GOD BLESS.

    • Hey Mary,

      Writing to you from IL, USA. I’ve been heartbroken since first hearing about the boy who fell down the borehole. I checked his update every few minutes on google, hoping for a success. I think about Julen every day since I have a 3 year old daughter. It is definitely a sad discovery and hope to get closure from his autopsy, as I hope he did not suffer. If you want to talk I’m here. Sending love from USA.

  2. It has been on my mind too Mary. It does help to think he didn’t suffer, I hope it will bring some comfort to his parents and family, if not now, perhaps in the future. May he rest in peace.
