In 1867, The Illustrated Police News described them as "two ghastly forms...locked together in a last deadly embrace". The "ghastly forms" in question were the skeetons of two men discovered long after they had died, trapped together in a sealed chamber in the roof of the theatre in Alicante. This theatre had seen its share of drama on stage, but nothing to rival the dreadful secret it harboured within its fabric.
According to author Jeremy Clay, it appears that the timbers of this theatre were in need of repair back in 1867, so workmen were called in to replace them. They began work, ripping out the old timbersuntil they revealed a narrow passsage where, to their horror, a pair of skeletons, still dressed in their tattered remnants of clothing, stood in an apparent embrace.
In that part of the 19th century, discovering a skeleton wasn't without precedent. Never before had there been so much construction, with deep foundations being laid in ground that had served many purposes over the preceding centuries of human occupation. But, for these workmen, a far worse discovery was to follow.
On closer inspection, far from being locked in an amorous, or even friendly, embrace, one of the skeletons had a large knife embedded deep in its chest. The other skeleton's hand still gripped the handle. A broken blade lay buried in its own neck. The Illustrated Police News arrived at the inescapable conclusion that, "a deadly struggle had taken place in which the lives of both men had been sacrificed."
Or, then again... Perhaps...
I leave you to your own conjectures.
