The Guardia Civil are asking for help to identify the body of the man found floating off Orihuela Costa in August. The man had a strange tattoo on his right arm with a longish text.
The man is thought to be aged between 25 and 35. His body was found on August 19 between Punta Prima and Cabo Roig in Orihuela Costa.
The tattoo is on the right arm of the body and consists of a text written in Spanish copperplate lettering. The Guardia Civil say the body was found naked and is of a muscular, white man, about 1m 85 tall, who removed the hair from his legs. He had a shaved head and looked to have been in good health.
The tattoo says: "demasiado confiado, divulga sus proyectos lo que facilita la acción de los contrarios. Por eso suele ser víctima de su bondad y exceso de confianza. XXI." Which roughly translates as "You who are too confident, tell your plans, this will help your adversaries. This is why you are usually the victim of your goodwill and overconfidence. XXI."
At the time of going to press it appears that the man's family have contacted the police after seeing a photo of the tattoo. It appears he was a 21 year-old from Madrid.
Also the body of the man found floating off Guardamar Coast last July has been identified as a German citizen.
