THE victim was not carrying any identification, though sources claim a member of the public has contacted them to report a young male who did not come home last night.
The deceased’s body was found around 7.45am this morning in near Laguna de Duero sports centre.
The Sub-delegation of the Government in Valladolid now places his age around 18 years and, said “there is no certainty he is a minor,” as initially reported.
The body has been transferred to the Anatomical Forensic Institute and a post-mortem is expected to be carried out today.
The Guardia Civil is “working to identify the deceased” confirming “a person has approached the place where the body was located to warn that a young man from his family had not returned home last night.”
The body was located in Calle Salinas, behind the sports centre, in an area which, according to the police, is frequented by youths at night, although they stressed this “does not imply that it is an area with drug problems.”
The Judicial Police is in charge of the investigation.
