A 27-year-old man in Crete has reportedly confessed to the killing of a 59-year-old American scientist whose body was found in an abandoned WWII bunker on July 8, according to a local news site.

Suzanne Eaton’s body was found near the settlement of Xamoudochori, in Hania, nearly a week after she was last seen by friends on July 2.

Local police sources cited by Cretalive told the website that the suspect, who is a farmer and a father of two, is talking to police officers after being detained for questioning along with several other suspects.

He reportedly owns a plot of land near the old German bunker and knows the area well.

During the investigation, policemen found tracks of the car with which he transferred the body of the woman near the cave.
