Mystery of human bones, dug up by man in his garden

AN investigation has been launched by police after a mysterious set of human remains were dug up in the back garden of an ex-pat Brit.

Costa del Sol police were alerted by the Olive Press, after British expat Nicholas Smith, 63, had tipped-off the online newspaper when discovering parts of a skull, jaw and leg bone.

The father-of-four, from Leicester, was stunned to find the remains when burying his dog, Elsa, at his home on the Costa del Sol, where he has lived for 12 years.

He believes the bones are those of a teenager, whose seemingly-shattered skull and bones were buried at his La Cala de Mijas home.

After meeting the former bricklayer and authenticating the find, the Olive Press contacted the Guardia Civil.

Officers, who were on the scene within the hour, and had taped off the area before carrying out a full excavation.

They told the online paper: “We can confirm that a set of human remains have been located on a property in the La Cala area. We cannot comment any further as this is now an ongoing investigation.”

Mr Smith believes the bones could be up to 100 years old, and the Guardia agree. The East Midlands expat also believes the bones could be the cause of a series of supernatural events at his house.

“There is a ghost in this house,” he said. “She once passed me wearing a shawl, and I’ve seen her passing through the windows. I think these bones are something to do with her.”

“I’ve spent every penny on this house, but she has told me, ‘it’s mine, not yours’,” he claimed.

There are more bones buried where Nicholas laid his dog Elsa to rest, but the expat, who suffers toe gangrene, was too weak to dig any further.

“I was very emotional and had to bury Elsa,” he said. “She had already been dead for 24 hours.”
