Except the Francés
Guardia Civil report that a 66 year-old pilgrim, M.F. from London died on 20th May, in Castro del Rio (Cordoba Province) while on the Camino Mozarabe. An autopsy will be performed in Cordoba. These are all the details that I can find at the moment.
That is very sad. I liked Castro del Río a lot, and there are worse places to die. In a bar near the excellent albergue I asked why there was so much Cervantes memorabilia around, and the barman said it was because he was in prison there for a while, and it's possible that it's where he started writing Don Quixote.

To tell the truth, I wouldn't mind dying on the camino. I think it would be a good way to go unless it was violence related
