British woman, 80, found shot dead in her Costa Blanca home as cops hunt gunman
A BRIT woman has been found shot dead in her Costa Blanca home.
The victim’s body was discovered just after 6.30pm on Wednesday after police were called to the property in Elche near Alicante.
Detectives have confirmed she was a British pensioner aged 80 and said they are treating it as murder.
Local reports said the unnamed woman had been shot at least three times at her home on a residential estate called Urbanizacion Torre Azul between Elche and the nearby town of Torrellano.
Worried neighbours are thought to have called police who found her body after a plummer went round for an arranged visit and got no answer when he knocked on the front door.
No arrests have yet been made.
