A BODY found on a Marbella roadside with shotgun wounds to the face has been identified as a 15-year-old Moroccan boy.

The youngster was found near the La Quinta urbanisation on the Marbella to Ronda road on Monday, with reports indicating he had been thrown from a moving vehicle.

An investigation is now underway, with an autopsy being held to determine the cause of death.

Despite being identified by his fingerprints, there is no report of a missing person.

It comes as four people have been arrested in connection with the murder of a Finnish woman whose partially dismembered body was found at a villa in Mijas.

Jenna Lepomaki, 19, is thought to have been killed after refusing to help smuggle cocaine between Spain and Finland.
