|House where bodies|
MIJAS Three members of a family have been found dead in a Spanish apartment in an apparent murder-suicide believed to be linked to the daughter's disability. It is understood that a note left at the home on the Costa Del Sol, where the bodies of the man, a mother and her daughter were found, said the daughter's disability had become too much and had pushed them to the edge. It is thought the note was written by the man, who is believed to be British. The mother and daughter have been confirmed as Irish. The trio were found inside the apartment in Mijas, Fuengirola, on Wednesday by their landlord. Police said they were working on the theory that the deaths were a murder-suicide. It is thought the three died from gunshot wounds inflicted by one of the adults. The man and woman, a couple in their 50s, and their daughter, in her late 20s, were understood to have been long-term residents of the area.>>>
The Department of Foreign Affairs in Dublin confirmed the woman and their daughter were Irish passport holders. Officials are attempting to contact their next of kin. The Foreign Office in London said it was "liaising closely" with the local police and was ready to provide consular assistance.
