6th body found ouf of 7 admitted murders - #mitseromurders

Post by PhotoLady » Wed Jun 05, 2019 4:03 pm

Police chief Kypros Michaelides told reporters at the scene that in his 42 year career he had never seen such barbarity.

A 35 year old army officer has reportedly confessed to killing five women and two children. So far six bodies have been recovered from three separate locations — Kokkini Limni — a mother and daughter and the body found today, an abandoned mine shaft in Mitsero where the bodies of two women were found, and a dry well in Orounta firing range where the body of another woman was found.

The suspect is currently in police custody and is due back in court on Thursday for a renewal of his remand. Sources said police are trying to contact three women with whom the suspect, who went by the online name of Orestes, was in touch.

The body found on Tuesday is believed to belong to Maricar Valdez Arquiola from the Philippines. The suitcase and body were first inspected by state pathologists and then taken to the Nicosia morgue where a post-mortem examination will be carried out.

The discovery on the west side of the lake comes as a breakthrough for the fire services who have been leading the search for several weeks, combing the lake inch by inch.

After weeks of combing Kokkini Limni in Mitsero, authorities on Tuesday recovered a suitcase with a badly decomposed body believed to be one of the victims of a self-confessed serial killer.

Police spokesman Andreas Angelides confirmed a body had been found, but would not elaborate. He spoke of a “very significant development” in the ongoing police investigations, adding that a search will continue in Memi lake near Xyliatou where authorities have been looking for the body of a six year old girl.

Sources said the victim was tied. Pavement slabs were found in the suitcase which was found by a diver of the private company Brasal Marine Service Cy which has been helping the fire services in their search that has also involved robotic cameras and sonar equipment.

I wonder how many more they will find by the end of all this investigation..... is Orestis only admitting to each one as the investigation gets closer to each location? There's still a long list of missing women on the list that was published several weeks ago.

Seventh body now found....
The body of six-year-old Sierra, one of the seven victims of a serial killer, was found on Wednesday afternoon, reports said.

Earlier in the month, the owner of the private diving company hired by authorities in the search for Sierra and another body in the Mitsero red lake, which was recently recovered, said the chances of finding the body of the six-year-old were very slim because the lake is around 60 metres deep with many underwater ravines.
Authorities have been searching for Sierra’s remains for almost two months after the suspect in the killings, Nicos Metaxas, 35, showed police where he dumped her body. Mother and daughter had been reported missing by their roommate on May 5, 2018.
Sierra was the last of Metaxas’ seven victims to be found. The serial killer admitted to killing the girl, along with her mother, and dumping her body in lake Memi after wrapping her in a sheet and tying it to a cement block. Tiburcio was the first of the victims recovered after being accidentally found inside a mine shaft on April 14, uncovering what has become the first recorded case of a serial killer on the island.
Metaxas is currently in custody pending the completion of police investigations. He is expected to be charged on Friday with the crimes of murders, kidnapping, abduction, rape, indecent assault, attempting to destroy evidence and obstruction of justice among others.
Government spokesman Prodromos Prodomou reminded the public on Wednesday that there was no need to organise fundraisers to cover the funeral costs of the victims, as the cabinet had agreed in May that all costs will be shouldered by the government.

Thoughts and prayers are so with the families of these women and children. So heartbreaking for their relatives.

I pray for peace in the hearts of the families, difficult though that is.

This man deserves the whole weight of the law on his head. Spending the rest of his life in prison is really no recompense for the heartbreak he has engineered.

A case as bad as this one deserves capitol punishment. Pity that it was abolished.
Life imprisonment may not last for life.
