Aaron Henderson, who passed away at Son Espases Hospital on Monday.

02-05-2018

The parents of 30-year-old Aaron Henderson have flown to Majorca from Northern Ireland to help the Guardia Civil with their inquiries into the death of their son on Monday.

Aaron, a businessman who was on holiday with his girlfriend, was found at 2.40am on Sunday collapsed on the calle Punta Ballena. He had suffered a serious blow to the back of the head which proved fatal and he passed away on Monday at Son Espases Hospital.

The results of the autopsy have confirmed that he died as a result of the blow to the head, however, the cause remains a mystery. The Guardia Civil are following up claims that Aaron was attacked as he walked back to the hotel in which he was staying with his girlfriend, while there is also speculation that he may have fallen over and hit his head.

The biggest problem the Guardia Civil have is that the area in which the incident happened is a CCTV black spot, so they have no video footage to go through.

According to sources close to the investigation, there are other claims that the couple had an argument earlier and that his partner returned to the hotel at around 1am while Aaron stayed out a little longer. For the moment, the Guardia Civil are keeping all avenues of investigation open as they continue with their inquiries.

Aaron has been described as a "loving family man" and tributes to him have been flooding in.

I agree with the cctv comments, but I think we all agree that the (grossly underpaid) police here do a great job. If only they were not handcuffed themselves by these increasingly stupid human rights laws (eg not being allowed to chase criminals) they could do even better. I feel for them.

I certainly hope that Aaron's death is investigated properly by the police, because I did read of an incident (in the Algarve, I think) where a holidaymaker was found dead in the street and the doctors or hospital staff told his family that he had been assaulted, receiving a blow to the head,but the police would not investigate the crime properly, insisting that the holidaymaker fell over and hit his head through being drunk.

I wonder if it was the dark ladies of the night that did this.

Disgusted that Calvia does not have CCTV all over Magaluf, Santa Ponsa etc.

You should be protecting the tourists

Why allow 'CCTV blackspots' in areas in/around the Punta Ballena? Areas such as these are epicentres for trouble.
