Cyprus Serial Murder Case: Third suitcase containing victim of serial killer found in lake

Since search started over a month ago for more victims of Greek Cypriot serial killer, search crews on Tuesday found a suitcase in a lake containing the body of one of his victims.

The suitcase was found in the toxic waters of red lake near Mitsero in which self-confessed serial killer Nicos Metaxas, 35, said he had dumped three bodies stuffed in suitcases.

The body which was found inside a suitcase, tied up, together with concrete slabs used for pavements was badly decomposed and could not be identified.

Search teams have already recovered two other bodies, thought to belong to Romanian national Livia Florentina Bunea, 36, and her eight-year-old daughter Elena Natalia.

On Tuesday, crews found the third suitcase which they believe contains the body of Filipino national Maricar Valdez, 30.

Metaxas, a 35-year-old army captain confessed in May that he has killed since 2016 seven women, including two young girls and dumped their bodies at various locations, including a toxic lake and a reservoir.

Investigations  will now concentrate at Memi Lake at Xyliatos, to locate the last victim, a six year old girl, whose mother’s body was found at the Mitsero mine shaft in April. 

Crews are still searching for the body of six-year-old girl Sierra Granze in the Memis lake nearby. 

Sierra’s mother, 39-year-old Mary Rose Tiburcio, was found by accident inside a mine shaft on April 14.

Metaxas has claimed seven victims, five women and two girls.
