In July, a 19-year-old British holidaymaker drowned in a swimming pool during a party at a rented villa near the resort of Playa d’en Bossa in Ibiza. 

Ben Crawford, 19, drowned in a swimming pool during a party at a rented villa near the popular resort of Playa d’en Bossa in Ibiza.

Friends later paid tribute to the keep-fit fanatic, who went to Minsthorpe Community College in South Elmsall, West Yorks.

Last month London-born business consultant Anwaar Lahrichi-Greenwood’s body was found floating near the mouth of San Antonio marina a day after he went missing.

Initial reports said he had marks on his body – but a post-mortem discovered he had died of drowning and police have said they have no evidence pointing towards a fight or attack taking place before the 24-year-old ended up in the water.

His family said they believe he was killed and later offered POUNDS 5,000 for information leading to a conviction.

The circumstances surrounding the latest incident have not yet been revealed.

Figueretas is a trendy area right next to Ibiza town with lots of hotels and apartments.
