Spanish police said Thursday officers visited the home of an American couple days before they found the badly decomposed body of their 7-year-old son at their family house in the northeastern city of Girona.
A police spokesman said officers were called to the house on New Year's Eve to check if the father was all right after the U.S. embassy contacted them, saying the man's colleagues were concerned as they had not heard from him in some time.
