A British man has been arrested by the Guardia Civil after his 25-year-old partner, now identified as Kerry Roberts from Bristol, fell from a 12th floor balcony of their holiday apartment in Playa Paraiso shortly after 2am on Friday night. The couple was in Tenerife with their five-year-old son and the man’s own father and his partner, and police are investigating claims of a drunken fight before the tragedy, and the possibility that he threw her from the balcony.
The woman’s body was found in the gardens of the complex by a security guard, alerted by the woman’s own partner and his father. Emergency services were called but the woman was already dead from the multiple injuries she suffered in the fall. The case is now under the jurisdiction of Arona Court 2, and an autopsy is being carried out to establish the exact cause of the woman’s death.
