Police in Spain said that an American couple has been arrested after a badly decomposed body of a child was found inside their Girona home.
A thirty nine year old man and thirty eight year old woman were detained by police on Tuesday after the child’s body was found lying on a bed, under several blankets.
Police said that the deceased male child was believed to be around seven years old and that he was left in this appalling condition for several weeks.
The American couple had two other children that are now in the care of local authorities.
Police said while no obvious signs of physical violence were on the boy’s body an investigation to determine the circumstances in the child’s death is ongoing.
