A 50-year-old man from Onda in Castellon Province took his own life after killing his mother who suffered from Alzheimer’s disease.
A resident on Avenida Montendre called the Policia Local police at around 12.30 pm today(May 12) to report that a man had jumped off his apartment balcony.
Officers confirmed he died instantly after falling onto the square.
Shocked neighbours said that his 77-year-old mother had Alzheimer’s and police got a front door key off her niece.
