THE Guardia Civil are carrying out an investigation after the body of a 30 year old Spanish man was found in his rented apartment in Polop. A relative of the deceased had raised the alarm after not hearing from the man for several days and the Guardia took the decision to break into the apartment where the grisly discovery was made. It appears that the young man has been dead for a while and his wounds suggested a possible violent death. The man had only moved down from Granada a few weeks ago, according to local sources. The police are also said to have uncovered large amounts of drug paraphernalia at the residence and are looking into this as a possible motive. An autopsy is being carried out as at this stage it is still too early to confirm if the death was an unfortunate accident or another party was involved.
