Mystery surrounds Swedish resident’s death in Tauro

Mystery still surrounds the death of Susanna, a Swedish lady, aged about 50 years old, who was discovered yesterday by the pool of ​​her home in Tauro where she had lived for more than a year, in the south west Gran Canaria municipality of Mogán. At first this was suspected to be a case of gender violence and her Irish ex-boyfriend was considered the possible primary suspect, however after he came forward and volunteered his testimony he was released without charge and the investigation continues. The fact that her ex-partner could not be initially located, led to suspicion and speculation in the local Spanish press that he had fled the scene after, according to witnesses, there had been a loud argument the night before, leading investigators to consider this hypothesis as a likely scenario. However, after preliminary inspection, it seems there were no clear indications of physical injuries on Susanna’s body, so now we await the autopsy report that will be produced after the coroner examines her, probably on Monday, at the Institute of Legal Medicine of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, which will determine the exact cause of her death. The grim find, by a person who knew the deceased, occurred around 10.00am on Sunday morning at the house that Susanna had rented on Calle Canada in the urban enclave of Tauro. It was this witness who alerted...

Arguineguín campsite closure threatens to leave residents and families homeless

More than 200 people gathered at the gates of the “campsite” in Arguineguín on Friday to protest the imminent eviction of those residing at the site, after the San Bartolomé de Tirajana townhall ordered the company managing the space, Canaricamping SL, to close the facility. The reason indicated by the southern town council is a lack of appropriate licenses. The facilities, on land owned by the aristocratic Del Castillo family, have been open to the public for almost a decade. The order affects more than 200 “campers”, who have been told to leave the facilities before January 31. Sources...

Woman found dead in Tauro, Guardia Civil seeking her partner

A foreign man, thought to be British, is being sought by police after a woman was found dead at a house in the Gran Canaria town of Tauro, in what is being treated as a case of gender violence. The Civil Guard report that at 10.15 am on Sunday they became aware of the possible homicide after a person, known to the woman, turned up at the Guardia Civil Main Post in Puerto Rico-Mogán informing them that she had seen the woman’s body in the pool area of the holiday villa. Several agents went to the address (a holiday rental villa with a pool) and confirmed the facts. Police have spent the day collecting witness statements, leading them to believe that the woman had argued with her partner the previous night in the house. The Civil Guard are looking for the victim’s partner, who reportedly fled the house. He is believed to be a foreign man, possibly British, who lives here in the Canary Islands, as did the deceased victim.
