ATHENS: Greek police believe they have found the killer of an American biologist who was murdered on the island of Crete on July 8, a source said on Tuesday (Jul 16).

Suzanne Eaton, 60, a molecular biologist at the Max Planck Institute in Dresden, Germany, was found dead in a disused military bunker on July 8, a week after she went missing.

A 27-year-old man is being questioned in connection with her death. "We consider the suspect is also the perpetrator," a police source told Reuters on condition of anonymity.

Greek police were scheduled to make an announcement later on Tuesday. A police advisory said the case had been "solved".

Eaton was thought to be out jogging on the day she disappeared.
