Police speculate that this is a tragic murder-suicide.
BREAKING NEWS – A young toddler and her father were found dead in a Madrid home on Thursday, December 30. Police are speculating that the tragic discovery was the result of a murder-suicide.
National Police officers found a three-year-old girl and her father, aged 47, dead tonight in a house near Lavapiés in Amparo Street, central district of Madrid, according to police sources.

When police officers entered the house, they confirmed that there were two lifeless bodies.
According to sources, police are currently working off the hypothesis that the man killed the young girl before taking his own life.
However, members of the Violent Crimes and Homicides Unit have travelled to the scene to proceed with an investigation to determine what happened.
A team of psychologists from Summa 112 were sent to treat the mother and the grandmother, who arrived on the scene shortly after the horrific discovery, as reported by Emergencias Madrid.
According to the investigators, the parents were separated.
The number of children killed in domestic violence cases this year stands at seven (44 since 2013, when data collection began), according to Cope.
A further 28 children have been orphaned by gender-based crimes during 2021 (334 since 2013).
