DNA to provide information about the body discovered in Limassol

Mystery is surrounding the case of a body found on Thursday, near the helipad of the Limassol General Hospital.

Coroners and anthropologists on Friday will proceed with examining the body.

After analysing the DNA, they hope to determine the body’s age, sex, origin and time of death. The DNA analysis is expected to shed light on whether the death was caused by a malicious act.

CID officers started scanning files with missing persons in an effort to assess whether the body belongs to someone reported missing.

According to the first evaluation by experts, the death seems to have occurred some time ago, as the body is in an advanced state of decomposition.

Even though the sex has not been officially determined, the first indications point to the body belonging to a woman.

The body was spotted on Thursday by a worker who was carrying out gardening jobs within the helipad. After he saw the body, the man informed his employer who called the police.

Questions have emerged regarding the location where the body was found since it is a fenced area used only for air ambulance services.

Phileleftheros writes that sources have also expressed their surprise that the body was just found now, as it should have been in the area for a long time, judging from its state of decomposition.
