Cyprus authorities regroup in Mitseros search
Authorities are entering second phase in the Mitseros murders, as they begin to scrutinize the past of a suspected serial killer and inspect the bottom of a lake inch-by-inch in search of a missing little girl.
Police investigators received DNA confirmation that matched a slain Filipina's body, 38-year-old Marry Rose Tiburcio whose corpse was retrieved on April 14 at an old abandoned mine in Mitseros, Nicosia district. The body was naked, bound, wrapped in a white sheet, thrown last year inside a flooded mine shaft, where another Asian female body was also retrieved on April 20.
DNA samples have been sent to the lab after a post mortem failed to point to the identity of the second victim, believed to be 28-year-old Filipina Αrian Palanas Lozano, also from the Philippines, who was last seen on 21 July 2018.
