(Pics)British man found dead at Spanish airport with GENITAL in a can oftuna


Physinews: A half-naked British man was found dead at a
Spanish airport with a slice of ham on each
buttock and his genitals in a can of tuna – a
death authorities mused may have involved
“foul play.”

Steven Allford, 51, was discovered face-down
on a bench outside Malaga’s airport, with his
hands and feet bound by cables and his pants
pulled down, the Mirror of the UK reported.

Preliminary tests indicated he died of
asphyxiation when he choked on his vomit
after drinking booze, the paper reported.

“There were no obvious signs of violence on
his body but the position he was found in
suggested foul play,” a source told The Daily
Mail. “It is not known if what happened was
done after or before death.”

Detectives were trying to find out if the ham
was placed on his exposed derrière as a sick
prank after he had died. Police also said he
may have been taunted or sexually assaulted.

Authorities were reviewing surveillance video
to search for clues in the bizarre case.

Allford — who had suffered from schizophrenia
and alcoholism — had regularly begged for
money in the area, which is frequented by the
homeless, Spanish media reported.

He also may have been the victim of
hobophobia, a fear or hostility toward the
homeless, according to the Hatento
Observatory, which investigates prejudice
against vagrants.


His body reeked of booze and several empty
bottles of alcohol were found nearby, the
Mirror reported.

A cart near his body contained documents that
helped cops identify him.

It was not known where in the UK Allford was
originally from and police were trying to
establish whether he had missed a flight
home.

Malaga Airport, Spain’s fourth-biggest, serves
14 million passengers a year.
