An investigation into the circumstances of the man’s death is underway and an autopsy is due to be carried out to determine the exact cause of death.
Prior to the tragic case of Julen Roselló, whose remains were finally recovered after a 13-day rescue operation, the provincial government of Andalusia had repeatedly asked the public to survey, mark, and seal any illegal wells they come across to prevent such tragedies occurring.
