GIBRALTAR police’s biggest ever murder inquiry into the tragic death of a family of four in March has been concluded.

The findings confirm there was no third party involved and also show the services of Estepona police were enlisted to investigate the family life of the British male, John Shannon, who was a resident there.

A UK inquest suggested that postnatal depression was at the root of a brutal murder suicide of Spanish woman Anarda De La Caridad Perez Friman, 37, Liverpool man Shannon, and Friman’s two daughters of four and six-weeks in a Boschetti’s Steps flat.

The investigation, Operation Indigo, has been handed over to HM Coroner Charles Pitto although the mother and her two daughters were laid to rest in May.

The Olive Press will report on the coroner’s findings as they are released.
