Missing American scientist Greece. The American scientist Suzanne Eaton, who has gone missing for several days, was found dead in a cave in Greece. She was participating in an international scientific conference at the premises of the Orthodox Academy of Crete in Kolymbari.
According to the first information, the 60-year-old woman was found dead last night in a cave at Xamoudochori in the municipality of Platanias, some 10 kilometers away from the Orthodox Academy of Crete.
Greek authorities are working to determine whether the death was an accident or a criminal act.
Shortly before 12 noon, relatives of the American biologist arrived, who later left with tears in their eyes without making the slightest statement.
On the Suzanne Eaton tracking page, they wrote: “We will always be grateful for your support. I understand that many of you want answers but we can not comment on anything at this time. We will post a message here when the time is right”.
The question of how the American scientist reached that site is still without an answer. The distance from the Orthodox Academy of Crete is about 10 km. Was she moved by vehicle or lost her direction and continued to walk in the opposite direction?
What puzzles the authorities is that the place where Suzanne Eaton was found is deemed inaccessible.
A special research team will investigate the site to determine the conditions under which the death occurred.
The body will be transferred to Rethymno on Wednesday for autopsy.
