Body of last victim of serial killer retrieved from lake

Search teams have retrieved the body of a six-year-old girl who was the last missing victim of a serial killer, police reported on Wednesday.

“The body of Siera was found at a depth of 10 meters at a point the suspect had earlier shown to the searchers,” a police spokesman¬† told reporters.

Siera was the daughter of Mary Rose Tiburcio, a 39-year-old woman from the Philippines. Both had been reported missing since May 5, 2018.

The search for the body started seven weeks ago after the self-confessed serial killer, army captain Nicos Metaxas, aged 35, admitted that he had killed seven women, including the daughters of two of his adult victims.
