Father arrested after the bodies of German mother and child found in a cave on Spanish island

HIDDEN: Two bodies were found in a remote cave

AN EXPAT has been arrested after the bodies of his missing wife and 10-year-old son were found hidden in a cave in Spain.

The German father was arrested near Adeje in Tenerife after his other son, aged five, escaped the mountain cave and alerted the police.

The boy reportedly told officers his father had taken the family to a cave and attacked them.

The mayor of Adeje, José Miguel Rodríguez Fraga said: “The details seems to point to a case of gender violence but we cannot go on the record, until we have collected more information and evidence.”

The murdered mother and child had been missing for more than a week when hikers came across the lost boy, crying and scared.

The mayor added that the detainee was a part-time resident of Adeje and the family had ‘come and gone.’
