EXPATS in Mallorca party capital Magaluf have been shocked at the news the body of young British bar worker Danielle Finlay Brookes was found in a wardrobe in her apartment.

The tragic discovery on Tuesday came after friends of Danielle became worried when they didn’t hear from her for some seven hours and alerted the emergency services, according to press reports.

Local Police and Guardia Civil officers found the lifeless body of the 24-year-old in her apartment, located just a short distance from the notorious Brit boozing Punta Ballena strip where she worked.

She had like many of Mallorca’s coronavirus crisis-hit hospitality sector staff been waiting for the tourist season to get going again.

An investigation has been opened into the cause of her death, but Spanish press have speculated that there was no foul play involved.

Mates of Danielle have now set up a gofundme page to help out the young woman’s family with repatriation and funeral costs.

Danielle was, they said, “a girl full of fun, a laughter taken far too soon from us.”
