Spanish police holding a full murder investigation after Brit commits suicide days after killing wife allegedly
A British man is believed to have killed himself deliberately by driving his motorhome head-on into a lorry after slaughtering his wife days earlier, who’s body was found by rescue emergency crews in the crashed motorhome.
Spanish cops think that the 38-year-old man ended his life with the horror smash while he was still carrying his alleged victim’s body in their mobile home.
The unnamed Brit died instantly in the crash last Friday afternoon on the A-381 motorway close to the town of Los Barrios near Gibraltar.
Police and firefighters later discovered the body of his 41-year-old French wife in what was left of the campervan and looked as if had suffered horrific wounds as well as being strangled.
The head-on crash took place last Friday as the Britishman drove his motorhome on the wrong side of the road before smashing into the lorry head-on but today Civil Guard investigators said everything was pointing to the accident being a probable murder-suicide after an autopsy revealed the woman had died days before the collision.
