An autopsy was to be carried yesterday out yesterday on the bodies of three women who were found near Greece’s Evros border with Turkey on Wednesday with their throats cut. The motives for the killings remained unclear though police are said to have ruled out theft as the women’s personal belongings had not been taken. A cell phone found in the possession of one of the three is being examined by police for clues that could lead to the killers. It is hoped that a DNA test will establish whether the three women were related and provide clues regarding their identites. One scenario that police are said to be considering is that the three were executed by human smugglers following a dispute over payment for their transfer over the border.
