The post-mortem on 26-year-old Adamos Adamou whose body was found on Tuesday in the Kouris river near Ayios Georgios Sylikou in Limassol was inconclusive, it emerged on Thursday.

Adamou, who was reported missing on December 31, was found dead in the riverbed on Tuesday morning by civil defence crews searching for him with the help of drones.

The post-mortem, carried out on Thursday by state pathologists Angeliki Papetta and Orthodoxos Orthodoxou, was inconclusive. Former state pathologist Marios Matsakis was also present on behalf of the family.

No external injuries were found on Adamou’s body while tissue was sent for histopathological and toxicological tests.

Police have not ruled out any scenario as regards Adamou’s death.

Papetta and Orthodoxou had also gone to the site and examined the body after it was found.

Police had said on Tuesday that the search crews had initially found a shoe near the river bank. A further search led to the discovery of the body.
