A couple and their daughter of Spain, were killed by piles of clothes.

Costa del Sol police began an investigation after the married couple and their daughter were crushed to death by hundreds of pounds of clothing, which they had accumulated at home.

The bodies of the 49-year-old man and his 50-year-old wife along with their 12-year-old daughter were found by their 18-year-old daughter.

It is believed that the married couple who compulsively accumulate all kinds of clothing, were crushed or suffocated by the mountain of clothes they had apparently collected at home for several years.

Investigators said that part of the first floor caved in due to weight of the clothing and the three victims were buried underneath.

The accident occurred between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. Their bodies were discovered at about 1:00 p.m., by the surviving daughter.

Rescue workers had to remove a massive amount of clothing and other items to free the bodies.
