Borehole Death Trial
The judge investigating the death of two-year-old Julen Roselló, who fell to his death down a 110-meter borehole near Málaga, has formally named the owner of the rural property where the toddler fell as a suspect.
This comes a day after prosecutors in Málaga asked for David Serrano to be investigated for involuntary manslaughter. Serrano’s defense lawyer confirmed his client had been formally named as a suspect.
This development means that the public prosecution has ruled out, for now, the possibility that other people were criminally responsible for Julen’s death.
The 2 year old fell down the borehole on Sunday, January 13 and his body was recovered 13 days later thanks to an unprecedented rescue operation involving more than 300 people.
A Málaga courtroom opened an investigation into the incident to determine whether negligence was involved.
