Mystery as Brit man, 82, found dead in waste tip after vanishing from Spanish hotel

POLICE are investigating the death of a British man whose body was found in a waste tip in Spain.

Denis Walker’s daughter Joanne launched an appeal for information on his whereabouts after he went missing on March 24.

The Civil Guard confirmed today they were probing the circumstances surrounding the 82-year-old’s death following the discovery of his body at the tip in Arboleas in the south-east province of Almeria.

Local reports said investigators did not believe his death had been natural but there is understood to be nothing at this stage to indicate Mr Walker was the victim of a crime.

The results of a post-mortem are unlikely to be made immediately public.

Mr Walker’s daughter had indicated in an earlier Facebook post her dad, who vanished from La Parilla Hotel in Albox which borders Arboleas, suffered with dementia.

Confirming the discovery of his body, she said in a message of thanks to people who helped in the search for him: “Thank you so much for your love and help trying to find my father.

"Unfortunately Denis was found today.

"RIP Dad."
