Investigations continue into identity of body found in mine.

Police are continuing investigations into the identity of a woman whose body was found in an abandoned mine near Mitsero at around 3pm on Sunday.

According to reports, the body, which was badly decomposed, was found by two tourists.

The dead woman was moved at 8.30pm after fire services and police examined the area.

The scene has been cordoned off.

An autopsy is due to be carried out on the body at 10am at the Nicosia general hospital.

Although he admitted he is not involved in the case, speaking to CyBC radio on Monday morning former state pathologist Marios Matsakis said it looked like a callous murder that was reminiscent of a previous case in Cyprus where the body of a woman was found down a well.

"There is no doubt that this is a callous murder. It will be a difficult forensic investigation because of the body's decay," he said.
