Body found at a beach in Paphos had broken nose, no internal injuries, exact cause of death still pending


Paphos police are investigating the death of a fish trader whose body was found Sunday morning on a local beach, with officials learning he had a broken nose but ruling foul play.

Local media said 57-year-old Andreas Katsaris from Mouttalos was found dead on a beach in the Tombs of Kings area on Sunday early morning around 6:30am.

During a preliminary autopsy by a state forensic pathologist, police said Katsaris had a broken nose. But during a computed tomography scan, police said, no internal injuries had been found.

Katsaris was known to take early morning swims every day, while his car was found locked in a hotel parking lot some 1300 meters away

A post mortem scheduled for later is expected to reveal the exact cause of death, with investigators reportedly ruling out foul play.

Local media said Katsaris, who traded fish for a living, was known to take early morning swims every day.

His car was found parked and locked in a hotel parking lot some 1300 meters from the location where his body was found.

His personal belongings, such as clothes, a wallet, and car keys, were found on the beach in front of the hotel in question, according to additional media reports.

It was not clarified whether the body was spotted in the water or elsewhere.
