It’s less than a fortnight ago that I posted the sad discovery near La Laguna of the body of a Guardia Civil officer who appeared to have shot himself with his service revolver, and now another Guardia Civil officer’s body has been found, this time in Candelaria. Police say that the officer was 38 years old and was discovered near his home: he appears to have been shot but it is too early yet to confirm that it was another suicide. His colleagues, however, have been expressing their sympathy in terms that indicate that they, at least, believe the gunshot was self-administered. Another tragedy for another family, and for the Guardia Civil itself. The force is now investigating the incident.
