A HORRIFIC murder has taken place just miles from the Love Island villa days before the show launches.
Local woman Gloria Francisca Zavala, 53, was found dead in her garage at her home in S’Arenal, which is close to Majorca’s capital, Palma.
Local media reports claim she was strangled and her 16-year-old son has been charged with murder and fraud.
The teen reportedly fled to Belgium on May 14, a day before his mother’s body was found.
Belgian police arrested him and his girlfriend after the grisly discovery was made, and Spanish authorities extradited the couple back to Majorca.
Gloria’s home is located 35 miles from the Love Island villa – which has 24/7 security.
The fraud charge relates to allegations the teen used credit card details belonging to one of his mum’s friends to book the flights to Belgium.
The unnamed teen’s girlfriend, 17, claims she had no idea about Gloria’s death until they had already left Majorca.
The couple returned to the island on Monday, a week before the new series of the ITV2 reality show begins.
Yesterday, The Sun Online revealed exclusive pictures of the famous villa, with show bosses scrambling to make sure the property is ready in time for the new batch of islanders.

Blue shipping containers can be seen just beyond the trees in front of the villa, while another set of ramshackle huts and storage containers can be seen behind the wall near the smoking area.
The main difference die hard fans will notice though, is that the Hideaway – where loved up couples are able to get a bit of privacy from their fellow Islanders – doesn’t look like it’s been completed yet.
Last year, the boudoir was located next to the living room, but in the aerial shots, it doesn’t look like it is there.
In it’s place is a high white wall, surrounded by low white walls and an open air space.
Fans need not panic though, as all the other features – the outdoor kitchen, the balcony, fire pit and jacuzzi – are all in their rightful places.
