Police in Cyprus have discovered the seventh victim of what is believed to be the island’s first serial killer.

The body of six-year-old Sierra Granze was found at the bottom of lake Memi, southwest of the capital Nicosia. The body was found after months of intense searching by Cypriot and foreign special forces.

An army captain, identified as Nikos Metaxas, was arrested in April on suspicion of the killings. The body was found after Metaxas was taken to the lake after he gave more detailed information about how he disposed of the body

He had previously admitted to throwing the child’s body in the lake after murdering her mother Mary Rose Tiburcio.

Mataxas is believed to have killed five adult women – all foreign workers – and the young daughters of two of the victims. It is thought that all of his victims have now been found.
