THE rotting corpse of an unidentified man has been found on the beach of Calahonda de Mijas this morning.
At 8:15am the Guardia Civil got a call to say a body had been found in the tourist hotspot between Marbella and Fuengirola.
The corpse, found in Malaga province, has signs of spending a long time in the water, according to local reports.
“We do not know if it’s three days or a month, the body is in very bad condition,” a police source said.
The dead man is wearing a life jacket and police think he could be an immigrant who fell from a boat and drowned trying to reach Spain.
Guardia Civil Investigations are now underway after a local beach cleaner first notified authorities.
The decomposed body has been transferred to the Medical Legal Institute for an autopsy.
