Millionaire David Rouse, 70, shot his wife Heather Rouse in their Spanish holiday home Sunday, before shooting himself. The bodies were discovered Sunday evening when neighbours became worried that they had not seen the couple, and did not receive an answer upon knocking on the door.

The couple’s Spanish holiday home is located in San Fulgencio, which is directly to the south of Alicante, and is worth £800,000.

A Civil Guard spokeswoman said that the evidence at the scene clearly denotes that David shot his wife, and then himself, and that they were not looking for any additional suspects.

The couple’s friends stated that David had been diagnosed with terminal cancer recently, and that additionally he had suffered two strokes.
