Family claim fall death son was chased

Have your say

A BRITISH teenager who died after falling from the ninth floor of a Spanish hotel was chased by a mystery man before his death, his family have said.

Film student Thomas Ousby, 19, died in Magaluf, Majorca, on August 1. The cause of his fall from a fire escape is unknown and his family have urged anyone with information to come foward.

The aspiring model and drummer, of Uxbridge, west London, was not staying at the hotel but at an apartment nearby.

His father John Ousby said there was a lack of information from the authorities.

“It is a complete mystery,” he said. “We know from text messages that he was sending throughout the night that we can actually put him in his apartment at 6am.

“But what made him leave the apartment, we have heard conflicting stories.”

Mr Ousby said the family were told Tom had argued with a “maintenance guy” and that they have also received a message from a girl at the hotel that “Tom was being chased by the maintenance guy, which completely changed things for us”.
