THE latest death occurred on Monday night in Rosselló street in Barcelona and the Mossos received a call regarding the incident at 11.00pm.
The Mossos investigators are now focused on determining whether the death of this homeless person could be related to three other deaths of homeless people that have occurred in the Catalan capital in recent weeks.
This latest victim was attacked with an iron bar, and the hypothesis that Mossos are investigating is that this may have been done by the same author acting with a similar modus operandi, as two of the other victims were also beaten with an iron stick.
There two cases are close in time, on April 16 and 18, that occurred in the surroundings of the Auditori and on Calle Casp in Barcelona, in which the victims were beaten with an iron bar.
Earlier, on March 18, another crime occurred, on Sardenya street when a 60-year-old homeless man of Spanish nationality was stabbed and killed. Now an attempt is being made to link this murder with the same perpetrator.
The other two victims were a 27-year-old man of North African origin (on April 16) and a 60-year-old man, on April 18.
