Well - the key question that nobody asks here .. what's the registration of the copter? What is the last filed flight plan? Who is the last owner? Should be fairly easy to track down what happened here ...
I saw somewhere else that this is potentially EC-KIR www.davidjackson.info...
It's either drug running or someone wants to claim some insurance money...

It looks like the drug hypothesis gained a little more "weight".
Article in Spanish
The Command of the Civil Guard in Almería asserts that "dogs have marked the helicopter," but "can not ensure" that the moment in which the helicopter was abandoned transported illegal substances.

What kind of tracks are you expecting exactly? Big muddy ruts with no grass in them? I've worked in plenty of places where there was absolutely nothing to indicate that an 18 wheel truck had come in and dropped off two loaders that ran all over the area for 12 hours other than a big clean slab where there used to be the burned out remains of somebody's cabin in the woods.
Edit to add: Also I have met a team of minimum wage 4 meth-addled convicts who successfully loaded a hard-landed blackhawk onto a truck for the Marines not far from 29 Palms. There's nothing particularly difficult about qualified people preparing equipment they use all the time to be taken out of use and moved by road- lots of people do it with lots of complicated stuff every day.
The device was sold two months ago to a foreign company by Jorge Alberto Vidal Miserachs.
The device registration EC KIR
04-Apr-15 EC-KIR PZL W3 Fernán Pérez, Spain
Date refers to the date that the wreck of this helicopter was found abandoned, and thus the accident could have happened earlier. Helicopter found having crashed onto its starboard side. No flight plan was filed (a requirement in Spain for every flight)
One local theory, partly due to the accident location being close to the Spanish south coast, was that the helicopter was carrying drugs from Morocco/Algeria

I see it. Look on the side that's showing in the video. You can see a different shade of yellow just above the wheel. It matches the shade of yellow on the side you can see when they move it.
The registration number on the left side is right about where the damage starts on the boom.
Helicopters Del Mediterrani is a company founded over 14 years ago and is dedicated to all types of jobs and aviation activities. Behind the company is as a single partner, BCN Serveis Aeris, and sole director, Jorge Alberto Vidal Miserachs. Interestingly, this businessman was indirectly related to the Gürtel plot, although there is still no final judgment on this case.
A total of 17 political related to the Popular Party allegedly charged EUR 5.5 million in the corrupted frame of Francisco Correa in kind and cash. These are the names of the plot:
