A diver has retrieved from the bottom of a man-made lake a suitcase that police officials in Cyprus say contains the decomposing remains of a woman, believed to be one of the victims of a military officer who has confessed to killing seven foreign women and girls.

The diver who recovered the suitcase on Sunday was wearing a protective suit due to the high toxicity levels of the lake that was part of a now-defunct copper pyrite mine.

Authorities say the 35-year-old army captain told investigators that he put the bodies of three of his victims into suitcases and threw them into the lake.
