A British tourist has been found dead in the pool of a luxury Spanish villa owned by Sir Richard Branson’s sister.
Oliver Wissenbach, 25, was found by a maintenance worker at the seafront property owned by artist Lindy Branson in Menorca.
Oliver, from Coventry, is thought to have fallen ill while going for a swim and his lifeless body was found at 7.45am on Tuesday.
The death is being investigated in Mahon, the Spanish island’s capital, and police will report their findings to a court which will decide if any further action is necessary.
Lindy told the Sun: ‘As you can imagine, we were tremendously saddened by this tragic news.
‘Our thoughts and sympathies are with the family.’
A source said: ‘The police report has categorised this as an accidental death awaiting the result of an autopsy.
‘Drowning is thought to be the cause. There was no evidence of violence or any kind of wrongdoing.
‘A lot of very wealthy people visit the property. It’s luxurious and popular with millionaires.’
