A man’s chopped up body has been found in a suitcase which was discovered dumped in the Rabasa Lakes, a few kilometres out of Alicante City. The gruesome find was made by the Guardia Civil last Friday (July 10th) after a group of young bathers who swim regularly there told the authorities that they had seen some floating bags and cases since the end of June.
The Guardia said that the body could be that of somebody aged between 40 and 50, and that he could be non-Spanish because of the type of one of the dentures that he had. The Guardia are working on the theory that he had been killed over a “settling of scores” and his body was found naked. The state of the corpse means that identification is likely to prove difficult. The area is normally used to dump weapons and stolen cars.
