The bodies of a sexagenarian couple, of German nationality and resident in Gran Canaria, were found yesterday afternoon in Los Llanos, in the town of Vecindario (Santa Lucía de Tirajana). Sources of the Command of the Civil Guard of Las Palmas reported that a neighbor of the deceased alerted of a strong unpleasant smell that came from a house, in which lived a couple whose ages ranged between 60 and 68 years.
The Civil Guard alerted about 14.00 to Emergency and Security Coordination Center (CECOES) 112 of the Government of the Canary Islands to send to the site a crew of firefighters of the Emergency Consortium of Gran Canaria, with the purpose of allowing access to the interior of the house. Once inside the house and the bodies were found, the firefighters demanded from the CECOES the presence of a doctor from the Canary Islands Emergency Department to certify the death of the couple.
The Armed Institute emphasizes that, when the first technical-ocular inspection was carried out, it was able to confirm that the bodies did not show signs of violence, and that inquiries into the surroundings and manifestations of acquaintances of the sexagenaires point to the hypothesis that, apparently, the man dies and, later, the woman. The indications collected by the Civil Guards emphasize that the woman had a vital dependence on your partner.
The causes of the deaths will be determined by the mandatory autopsy of the bodies that, possibly, will be carried out this Monday at the facilities of the Anatomical Forensic Institute of Las Palmas, the source points out. And he insists that there are no signs of violence in the bodies and that one of the deaths was precipitated by the care dependency that there was of the other person, some questions that will be completely cleared with the corresponding autopsy study.
