The researchers found human blood on a car and a children’s sandal, believed to belong to the little boy and were found in the Hercules area, from where he disappeared.
The head of the investigations made in October 2016 in Kos, Inspector John Cousins, said:
“The new findings confirm and reinforce the theory that the little boy was killed in an accident by an excavator who worked at the point where he was lost.”
The results of the DNA test are expected to give the definitive response to the thriller that shocked public opinion. Statements made by the Professor of Geology, Lorna Dosson, working with the South Yorkshire Police. As she said, the findings with DNA extraction can prove Ben’s death.
As soon as Ben’s mother, Kerry Needham saw the toy, she collapsed. As she told the officers, she had bought a similar one from a shop in Kos. “I’m sure 90% it belongs to Ben. You forget your child’s toys until you see them again. I vaguely remember his car. But it definitely looks familiar. ”
It’s a metallic yellow car with red and black details. On the roof has the number 88 and the word “gasoline”. The impression is that the car was in good condition, it was not rusty and did not even lose its color.
The game was at a “secret location,” as the British called it, where the excavator driver was throwing the rubble, just 800 meters from the farmhouse where Needham family was working.
The latter finding strengthens the view of the Yorkshire police officers who believe that the unfortunate boy may have been accidentally stunned by a digger and after the accident his corpse was transferred to the dump where the toy was found.
Ben Needham’s family is excited by the results and appeals to anyone who knows where the child is buried, to come forward.
“The latest developments show that they apparently moved my child’s body and buried it elsewhere. My opinion is that there was a cover-up,” Ben’s mother, Kerry Needham, told the British press.
“Tell us where Ben is buried to bring him back to England …”
In an interview given by the three women of the family at ITV News and Tunnel on Friday, December 16, 2016, they said they would continue their fight to find his remains and bring them for burial in England.
They propose as incentive the £ 10,000 reward offered by a British charity, without excluding that this amount could be increased.
Surveys in Kos
British officers of the “Operation Ben ” were funded with more than one million pounds to investigate old and new evidence of the disappearance that had taken enormous proportions in the British press. They even demanded the help of Tunnel as the most reliable research show and did not hesitate to appear in the studio to appeal to witneses. They examined 3,000 testimonies, blocked 60 people, indicating that might have been Ben Needham and they even traveled to Australia.
In September 2016 they returned to Kos after a testimony that wanted the little boy was the victim of an accident.
The team consisted of nineteen people, led by John Cousins, who was assisted by an anthropologist and two archaeologists. In collaboration with the Greek Authorities, they delineated the research sites in the Hercules area, where the young boy was last seen in July 1991.
Investigations were led to a second debris area where a kid toy car was found and believed it belongs to Ben.
It was discovered next to a can, which, according to experts, dates back to 1991.
The children’s sandal was found in 2012 at the site where when Ben disappeared, building work was carried out by an excavator.
