Skull found in Preveza belonged to woman missing since 2010


A human skull that was recovered last week from a ditch in the town of Preveza, northwestern Greece, belonged to a 25-year-old woman who went missing in 2010, DNA tests revealed on Monday.

The woman, Angeliki Peponi, was identified after a relative provided DNA for testing, which resulted in a partial match.

According to local news reports, the last man to see her alive was her 59-year-old boyfriend, who told investigators at the time that he had nothing to do with her disappearance after she left his home.
