A man of approximately 50 years of age was found dead on Sunday in the municipality of Tinajo, in the Tajaste area of Lanzarote. His brother, who had not heard from him for a long time, was the one who went to the place where he lived, and found his body in an advanced state of decomposition.

The man contacted the Local Police after finding his dead brother's body in a small outbuilding that he was living in, close to his home, who in turn alerted the Guardia Civil, who have taken charge of the investigation.

Signs suggest that it was a natural death, although they are waiting for the results of the autopsy to confirm that, but sources close to the case have said that death could have occurred several weeks ago, due to the state in which the body was found.
