Heart-breaking end for a German couple

THE bodies of a German couple were discovered last Sunday inside a Gran Canaria house at Vecindario, in Santa Lucia de Tirajana.

Neighbours informed the Local Police last week about a strange smell, emanating from the home in which they lived.

Officers went to investigate on the Wednesday, but failed to get any response from the house. They tried again on the Saturday because the neighbours again complained about the bad smell. But the police were unable to speak to anyone.

Finally, last Sunday, the Guardia Civil along with the fire services, entered the house and came across both bodies; the man was on the stairs, while the woman was found in her bed. The locals hadn’t seen the couple since the previous Saturday, but, after questioning the locals, it was revealed that the man had been taking care of his partner, who was ill and believed to be bed-bound.

Unfortunately, the man had died through natural causes, and, because he was unable to look after his partner, the woman died soon afterwards.

Officials have ruled out their deaths as being suspicious.
