Palma.—The family of 19-year-old musician Tom Ousby who fell nine floors to his death from the roof of the Hotel Atlantic in Magalluf, today issue an appeal here in Majorca and in the UK for anyone with any information to come forward as they try to resolve what happened on the morning of 1 August.

His father John told the Bulletin last Tuesday that, based on information that has been gathered, they suspect foul play, there have even been claims made that he was chased as he was not even staying in the hotel.

Tom, who had been working in Magalluf lived in an apartment some 20 minutes away from the scene of his tragic death.
Despite reports in the UK that the case has been closed by the police, that is not the case.
The Guardia Civil are still waiting for results of the autopsy and the post mortem which is being carried out in Barcelona while they are also going over Tom's laptop and mobile telephone in the search for any leads as to what happened on the morning he fell from the roof at 7am.

According to his father, who said Tom was “a text book son who never got angry and was very popular” the incident is totally out of character for Tom.
The family has instructed two Palma lawyers to represent their interests and they desperately want anyone who knew him on the island and may know something about what happened to come forward by either contacting the police or the Bulletin in full confidentiality.
