Edinburgh finance worker found dead next to unconcious wife in Spanish villa in Majorca Facebook

An Edinburgh finance worker has been found dead in a Spanish villa next to his unconcious wife, according to reports.

Emergency services on the island of Majorca were called to the property on Saturday where they found Jaime Carsi, 40, dead and 39-year-old Mary Somerville next to him.

Ms Somerville is in a serious condition in Manacor Hospital, according to local newspaper Ultima Hora.

The couple were on holiday celebrating their marriage and were staying at a rural property in Cala Mesquida in the north-east of the island.

Local police are investigating the death of the Scottish investment firm analyst Mr Carsi. An Ultima Hora report said an autopsy found he had died of carbon monoxide poisoning.

A friend of the couple, Patti Montella, said Mr Carsi was a “magnificent soul”.

“Jaime Carsi came into my life, and took up residence in my heart, so many years ago, in London,” she wrote on social media.

“His smile and spirit are pure love. And when he married our precious Edinburgh girl, sweet Mary – it was a match made in heaven.

“You left us way too soon my little one. What a prince you are – such a magnificent soul.”

A UK Foreign Office spokesperson said: “We are supporting the family of a British national who was hospitalised in Mallorca. We are in contact with the local authorities.”
