Man 'kills himself with a shotgun after tying the trigger to his penis'

A 30-year-old man has been found dead in his home in Murcia, southeastern Spain, after allegedly shooting himself in the head while his genitals tied to the trigger.

The man's body was not discovered until several days after his death, when his flatmates came home from holiday and noticed the smell, local news reports.

It is not known why the unnamed man appeared to have taken his own life, not why had chosen to tie his genitals to the trigger.
