Suspect detained in murder investigation

A Romanian national, 31, has been detained in connection with the murder of a compatriot, found dead in Nicosia on Friday afternoon.

Authorities had initially ruled out foul play but the post mortem showed that 42-year-old Daniel Radu had multiple fractures on the right side of his skull.

He was found dead at 2pm in an abandoned house in Latsia.

A state pathologist put the time of death around eight hours after the injuries had been inflicted.

Police were told that the victim had been out with three other individuals on Thursday evening.

At some point someone hit Radu in the face and he fell on the pavement, police said.

Based on the information they received, police issued an arrest warrant against the 31-year-old who was remanded in custody for eight days.

The suspect told police he was at the scene but claimed that the victim had fallen off the chair by himself.

Police said they were seeking the two other individuals who were present at the scene on Thursday evening.
