Apparently he was found in the water. Pretty sure he was attacked.

Just so sad because he was so lovely. Beautiful inside and out.

Police recovered his body from the mouth of San Antonio port around noon last Sunday after friends and relatives took to social media to launch an appeal for information on his whereabouts.

Investigators found marks on his body but said before the post-mortem, which showed he had drowned, that they could have been caused by his body hitting rocks or other objects in the water.

Further tests – expected to be carried out at a lab in Barcelona – will now seek to determine if he had consumed drink or drugs before he died.
