NICOSIA- Agence France-Presse
Greek Cypriot authorities on April 25 uncovered another body in a widening probe into the murders of foreign women and girls after a suspected serial killer confessed to seven killings, police sources said.
Police sources, quoted by the state-run CNA news agency, said authorities were also looking into cases involving an Asian woman as well as that of a Romanian mother and her young daughter reported missing in 2016.
The suspect, who allegedly confessed to seven killings, showed investigators the spot where he had dumped a body in a well at an army firing range outside Nicosia.
They include a coroner, a clinical psychiatrist, a forensic specialist and investigators experienced in multiple murder cases.
Local media have dubbed the case the island's "first serial killings" after two bodies, both believed to be Filipinas, were recovered from an abandoned mineshaft since April 14.
