Westley Capper was charged with serious crimes in Spain but escaped jail twice.
Expat millionaire’s son Westley Capper has died from Covid-19 complications in Marbella, according to unconfirmed reports and the Marbella rumour mill.
According to unconfirmed reports, Westley Capper, son of British millionaire John Capper, died yesterday, July 26, in a Marbella hospital from complications caused by Covid-19.
So far, there has been no word from his family.
Capper escaped jail in Spain in 2020 despite confessing to the hit-and-run zebra crossing killing of a mother-of-three in his father’s high-powered Bentley while high on drink and drugs.
Tried in 2019 for kidnapping a missing waitress outside a Costa del Sol nightclub, he was handed a suspended two-year jail sentence after admitting to Fatima Dorado’s manslaughter.
The mother-of-three died in hospital shortly after being hit on a zebra crossing in San Pedro de Alcantara near Marbella on May 9, 2016.
Judge Ignacio Navas Hidalgo said he could remain a free man as long as he stayed out of trouble for the next three years and attended a road safety education course.
Essex-born Capper, whose wealthy father John made his fortune from real estate, was able to avoid prison after striking a deal with prosecutors following a ‘blood money’ compensation pay out to the victim’s family.
The Brit expat also avoided jail seven months after being cleared of kidnapping Agnese Klavina from a nightclub in Puerto Banus in September 2014.

Ron actually started his working career as an Ophthalmic Technician- things changed when, during a band rehearsal, his amplifier blew up and he couldn’t get it fixed so he took a course at Birmingham University and ended up doing a degree course. He built up a chain of electronics stores and sold them as a franchise over 35 years ago. After five years touring the world Ron decided to move to Spain with his wife and son, a place they had visited over the years, and only bought the villa they live in because it has a guitar-shaped swimming pool!.
Playing the guitar since the age of 7, he can often be seen, (and heard!) at beach bars and clubs along the length of the coast. He has always been interested in the news and constantly thrives to present his articles in an interesting and engaging way.
Never heard of him but it sounds like he got what he deserved.
