Police have ruled foul play in the death of a man whose body was found in a pool of blood on Wednesday afternoon in a park in Lakatamia, in Nicosia, near the fire service headquarters.

A post-mortem showed that the man had bled out after slashing his wrist with a sharp instrument.

Authorities said the body belonged to 20-year-old Romanian man Eugen – Leonard Misea who had been reported missing from his home since Monday afternoon.

The man was located at around 6.20pm at the Pedieos river park.

The scene was cordoned off while state pathologist Eleni Antoniou was called in to examine the body on site.

Investigations stopped during the night time due to low visibility and resumed on Thursday morning. The scene was guarded during the night.
