A couple has plunged to their deaths from the fourth-floor balcony of an Ibiza hotel in a suspected murder-suicide.

Detectives are investigating whether a man pushed his partner before jumping off the balcony of the four-star Torre del Mar Hotel in the early hours of Thursday morning.

The pair, a Moroccan man, 26, and a Spanish woman, 22, with dual Italian citizenship, were heard arguing before they died shortly before 4.30am.

The tragic incident was initially suspected to be accidental – but a witness testimony persuaded officers to treat it as a potential case of gender-based violence, according to local media.

Preliminary autopsy results could not confirm this hypothesis, Periodicodeibiza.com reports.
