British expat, 40, dies after plunging from an apartment block in Ibizan party town - the same building as a 26-year-old Briton fell from last year

  • The 40-year-old fell to his death at the Tanit building in the town of San Antonio
  • Police sources say they are keeping an open mind but have not ruled out suicide
  • Comes a year after Briton Callum Marriott plunged to his death at same building
A British man has died after plunging from an apartment block in an Ibizan party town, it has emerged.
The 40-year-old, who is thought to have been living on the Spanish island, fell to his death at the Tanit building in San Antonio last night. 
Police sources say they are keeping an open mind on the cause and have not ruled out suicide.
It comes a year after a 26-year-old Briton named as Callum Marriott, from Clipstone, Nottinghamshire, died at the same building having fallen from the fourth floor on to an inside patio.   
Callum had just enjoyed his last night out on the holiday island with friends and was due to catch a plane home later the same day.

Investigators said afterwards they believed he may have been trying to get into his fourth-floor apartment when he fell around 4.15am on August 6 2017 after leaving his friends and returning early only to find he didn't have keys to get in.
Charlie Simpkin, 20, a workmate at Mansfield Citroen where Callum worked as a technician, said in a moving tribute at the time: 'There aren't words to describe him. He was just golden. He was like a brother to me. 
'He was really bubbly, he loved life, his music and his cars.'
In the latest incident last night, the alarm was raised just after 10pm and police spent time trying to establish who the man was because he had no documentation on him. 
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene. He reportedly plunged from a fourth floor or sixth floor.
The local Civil Guard said this morning they could not confirm the height he had fallen from. 
Three Britons have died already this summer after plunging from the same building - Eden Roc - in Magaluf on the neighbouring island of Majorca.
