A 32-year-old man from London was killed by two men in his home in Malaga province.
The man, identified by the initials P.F., was stabbed twice with a knife when he opened the door to his aggressors at 10.30am Wednesday.
His friend called 016 but the emergency services were unable to save the man’s life at the scene.
An investigation has been opened by the Specialist and Violent Crime Unit of the Torremolinos Police.
They believe that the victim was tortured before being killed, and one of his ear lobes was removed.
The police think that the victim may have known his attackers as it seems a conversation took place before the attack.
Several fingerprints found in the flat are now being checked.
