POLICE are investigating the death of a man of around 40 years of age whose body was found on Saturday morning in his bar in Lorca, Costa Blanca.
It was the victim’s 70-year-old mother who found her son dead and officers and paramedics who attended the scene also had to treat the woman as she suffered a serious anxiety attack.
The body was transferred to the Instituto de Medicina Legal, for an autopsy. According to the early indications, it seems that the man, the owner of the bar, accidentally fell down the stairs as there were no signs of violence and the blood found was already coagulated. The investigation will remain open until the coroner’s report is completed.
