BREAKING: Papadopoulos' body may have been found
POLICE last night said they may have found the stolen body of former president Tassos Papadopoulos in a Nicosia cemetery.
“A body was located in a cemetery in Nicosia, which, based on all indications so far, possibly belongs to former president Tassos Papadopoulos,” police spokesman Michalis Katsounotos said.
The body was discovered after a tip-off.
Katsounotos said the necessary DNA tests will be carried out to determine whether the body is Papadopoulos.
No more information was immediately available.
Papadopoulos’ remains were dug up and stolen from his grave on December 11, 2009 on the eve of the anniversary of his death.
The corpse was removed in torrential rain after the culprits shifted a granite slab and dug through several feet of earth.
Police have since questioned numerous individuals but always came up empty.
The family had previously denied that a ransom demand had been made for the return of the remains.
