Suspect in Murder of US Scientist Suzanne Eaton Arrested on Crete

A 27-year old man was arrested on the Greek island of Crete on Monday, charged with the brutal murder of the 60-year old American scientist Dr. Suzanne Eaton.

According to what the flashnews website is reporting, the man has allegedly confessed to his heinous crime, and he made a series of mistakes which led local police authorities to be able to trace him and link him to the scene.

The 27-year old man is reported to be a local farmer, who is also the father of two children.

There is still no information on the motives behind this disturbing incident.

The body of the biologist was found covered with burlap, something which led the Greek authorities to the conclusion that her death was the result of a homicide.

Dr. Eaton’s body was found in a labyrinthine cave on July 9, at a distance of about sixty meters (197 feet) from the entrance, in a lateral position.

A massive operation involving police and volunteers had been undertaken on Crete in order to locate the missing American scientist.

The well-known and respected scientist worked for the prestigious Max Planck Institute for Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics, based in Dresden, Germany. She was on the Mediterranean island to attend a conference and she disappeared on July 2.
