Former Spanish banker found dead with gunshot wound

A former chairman of one of Spain's largest banks has been found dead with a gunshot wound to the chest.
The body of Miguel Blesa was found beside a car at a private estate in Villanueva del Rey in the southern province of Cordoba.

Witnesses who were with the former banker at the estate told police he left the group early on Wednesday morning, saying he was going to move his car.

They said a single gunshot was heard moments later, police announced.

Authorities have ruled out murder and are now investigating whether his death was an accident or suicide.

Mr Blesa was chairman of Caja Madrid until it merged with seven other domestic saving banks in 2010 to create Bankia SA.
