Tourist’s cause of death unknown, foul play ruled out

Jack Jackow

A post mortem has failed to determine the cause of death of a 69-year-old British tourist who had gone missing on August 8 after his arrival in Ayia Napa for holiday with his family.

George Jackow’s decomposed body was found in a wooded area of Protaras 10 days later by search crews.

According to his son, Jackow had been suffering from Alzheimer’s for one and a half years.

A post mortem carried out on Thursday by state pathologist Angeliki Papetta failed to determine the exact cause of death but foul play has been ruled out by the authorities.

The pensioner had arrived in Cyprus a day before he went missing for a two-week break with wife Janet, son Adam, and daughter Natalie, along with her four children and husband Simon.
