Palacios to miss remainder of Tottenham season

Tottenham midfielder Wilson Palacios is expected to miss the remainder of the season following the apparent murder of his teenage brother Edwin in Honduras.

The £14million signing flew home on Saturday, after what are thought to be the remains of his 16-year-old brother were discovered, says the Daily Mail.

Edwin, the youngest of five football-playing brothers, was seized by armed kidnappers from his home in the coastal town of La Ceiba following Wilson's move to Birmingham in August 2007. He moved to Wigan in January 2008.

Palacios' parents will undergo DNA tests today to determine whether the remains are indeed those of Edwin.
