A 31 year old British man and 37 year old Spanish women were found dead along with two children in Gibraltar on Monday. The police are looking into both the adult’s state of minds.

According to police, the names of the deceased are being withheld until the arrival on the Rock of their next of kin.

Two girls, one aged four and the other six months, were found dead at the murder scene and have since been removed and taken to St Bernard’s hospital.

Eddie Yome, police commissioner, said that until Doctor Carey who is an expert pathologist arrives tomorrow and a post-mortem is undertaken, that the bodies of the adults will remain at the scene. As police were worried about the bad smell, they removed the children.

Apparently, young officers at the scene have now been replaced by senior officers as they weren’t prepared mentally for the scene.

Since the police forced their way into the property, which was rented on Boschetti’s steps, and the news broke, the residents of Gibraltar have been in shock.

The Royal Gibraltar Police are not looking for anyone else that might be involved at this current time as the police had forced entry into the property to find the deceased family. Between 10.45 am and 11am on Tuesday, neighbours raised the alarm when they heard screaming coming from the property in the Governor’s Lane area.

It is believed that the family had only stayed in the apartment in Gibraltar for a few days however had lived in Spain for some time.
