Crime and Incidents
Body Found
Firemen discovered the body of a man after being called out to a fire in caves close to Puig des Molins. The three caves are located at the end of calle de Ramon Muntaner in Ibiza Town, in an area known as sa Cova de ses Dones.
  The fire department received a call at 8.20 am to report a fire in the area. Five fire fighters turned up to put out the blaze. However after doing so they discovered the decomposed body of a middle aged man. The watch on his wrist was an hour fast, leading officers to suppose that he could have even died before the last time the clocks changed in October. However the body showed no signs of violence and police do not suspect any foul play.
  The caves are a regular haunt for the homeless, and this is not the first time that the fire brigade has been called to the area to deal with a blaze, as there is a lot of rubbish in the area which is constantly being set alight.
  Although nothing was confirmed, a report later in the week claimed the body was that of a 44 year old Spanish man named as Ignacio van Horenveke Paredes, who was originally from Bilbao but had been living on the island for many years, although, according to a member of the charity Caritas, he was extremely down on his luck, had given up looking for a job and spent his days wondering the streets.
