According to a Thessaloniki coroner, the body is that of a man aged roughly 50 years old, with a height of 1.90 metres. There were no signs of injury to the skeleton, while his death is estimated to have occurred about a month earlier.
The body was discovered last Tuesday by a passer-by who found human limbs by the lake. These were collected by police, who launched a search along the lake with the assistance of specially trained dogs, eventually discovering the man's remains on Wednesday.
Authorities have launched an inquiry to discover the man's identity and possible cause of death.
