News reports are saying that a body washed ashore from the the Aegean Sea with characteristics of missing crew member Denisa Markoska who disappeared from the M/S Serenissima under suspicious circumstances 24 days ago.
You can read articles from Macedonia here and here.
There is reportedly a similarity in the clothes with those worn by Ms. Markoska and those on the body of the deceased person who washed ashore island of Karpathos.
There will be an autopsy and DNA analysis which should confirm the identity of the body. Such analysis may shed light on the cause of death and whether she drowned or died on the ship.
The articles discuss that suspicions surround what occurred to the young woman on the cruise ship. Her mobile phone was found with the SIM card removed. The captain continued to sail for many hours knowing that Ms. Markoska had gone overboard, and he let the passengers all disembark before police began investigating the woman’s disappearance. There is widespread speculation in the Macedonian press that some women on the ship engaged in prostitution, although I have seen no direct evidence of that.
