The Guardia Civil are investigating the murder of a man in Dúrcal in the Valle de Lecrín. The victim was found with his throat slit.
The man, whose body was found in a cortijo, had a criminal record – in 2009 he had attacked one of his relatives with an axe over an inheritence dispute. Following the attack, he was sent to prison and served a prison sentence of over eight years.
Back to nowadays, the body, which was found on Monday, had other knife wounds (quite a few according to one source) other than the fatal one to his throat.
The police have ruled out the killing as a drug-related one, because the Guardia Civil have detained a possible suspect.
The victim was a resident of Dúrcal and lived in a cortijo situated in the area of the municipality known as La Mahina (where the tower in ruins is) which is where he went to live after leaving prison in 2018.
