Detectives who kill the American biologist Dr. Investigating Suzanne Eaton, thinking that the murderer has committed a major mistake that could lead to a detention, DailyMail.com can reveal.
Officials are working on the theory that the murderer who choked, stuck the Eaton in his ear and cut it before she dumped her body, had their cell phone with her when she was killed on Tuesday, July 2.
The police are trying to determine if their telephone signal was picked up by mobile telephone towers close to the remote olive fields in Chania, where her body was found Monday.
Crucially, they put a two-hour period on the night of the murder, when several phone calls were picked up in an area they thought would be known to the murderer and few outside the area.
It was also revealed that Eaton, a California resident who lived in Germany, was killed the same day she was missing fought for her life when DNA was found under her fingernails and the police said her body would be tested for signs of rape.
Suzanne Eaton, 59, was found dead Monday on the island of Crete, Greece after being choked and stabbed to death on Tuesday, July 2. Officials are working on the theory that the murderer had his cell phone with him when Eaton was murdered, DailyMail.com can reveal
Crucially, the police pointed out a two-hour period on the night of the murder, when several phone calls were picked up in an area they thought would be known to the murderer and few outside the area
Earlier this week, it was revealed that the killer had dumped the body of Eaton, who was still dressed in her running gear, along a shaft, a drop of about 40 feet. Pictured: a view into the cave
This is supposed to be the entrance to the network of tunnels where Dr. Eaton & # 39; s body was found. The entrance was described as covered by tree branches. According to local points of sale, the person who put her there must have known of its existence because it is not easy to reach from outside or is clear
DailyMail.com has found that in the days after the mother of two Eaton's body was found, officers were walking around in the former Nazi bunker, talking to the three largest telephone companies in Greece, Cosmote, Vodafone and Wind, from their own mobile phone.
They talked to telephone technicians and technicians while they were in the forest and asked if their locations were identifiable.
The police who visited the area found strong 4G signal strength on their cell phones, stimulated by two towering telephone towers in the area.
A source said: & # 39; They did this because they wanted to test their own phones and coordinates close to the cave and then, using GPS mapping and computer data, find out what other mobile phones in that area were in the last week been.
& # 39; It is a lonely place and there is no reason really except for walkers or cave explorers, for everyone to go there.
& # 39; If the killer had his phone in his pocket, they think that's enough to find him. He doesn't have to call. His number will be recorded.
& # 39; There can't be many people going there, and if that is the night her body stays there, they will be looking for the owners of the cell phones that were picked up in the area at the time. & # 39;
It is not yet confirmed whether the killer is a man or a woman. No one has been arrested and no suspects have been mentioned.

The police think the murderer may not have entered the cave itself, which is accessible from another entrance and only dropped the corpse through a shaft that was covered with a wooden pallet before it drove away. Her body landed face down, about 200 feet in the labyrinth of passages that run through the cave
Local villagers said they believed that only someone from the area would have known about the cave, which is off a dust trail and then means a trek through rugged forest and is not easily visible to the naked eye or from the road
Eaton disappeared on July 2 and was last seen playing the piano at the Orthodox Academy before running between 3 p.m. and 5 p.m., leaving her phone and wallet behind. It was discovered in a cave from the Second World War near the settlement of Xamoudochori on Monday evening
The police think the murderer may not have entered the cave itself, which is accessible from another entrance and only dropped the corpse through a shaft that was covered with a wooden pallet before it drove away.
Her body landed face down, about 200 feet in the labyrinth of passages that run through the cave.
The shaft, due to its darkness and 40 feet below the earth, has cold air flowing through it and this may have contributed to the preservation of DNA from the murderer.
Police and forensic officers thoroughly investigated the cave near Xamoudochori, and on Thursday their discarded plastic gloves and other debris sowed the opening to the cave, which is partially blocked by a fallen tree and is only accessible on all fours.
Local villagers said they believed that only someone from the area would have known about the cave, which is off a dust trail and then enters a journey through rugged forest and is not easily visible to the naked eye or from the road.
An olive farmer, Petros, told Mail Online: & This is something terrible to happen to that woman. The killer must be crazy.
& # 39; But he also needs to know about the cave. Very few people come from outside the area and know about it. It is far from everyone. & # 39;
Another local, who is studying as a radiologist, added: & What a terrible end this lady came across. She did great things with her research and work. I really feel for her family. & # 39;
Greek authorities say they are working on the theory that Eaton was murdered elsewhere and that her body was transported to the bunker after her death

The tunnel was opened by the Greek authorities on Tuesday after the discovery of her body. The above video was made during their visit
HISTORY OF THE NAZIS ON CRETE
The network of tunnels was built by the German troops in 1942 on the Platanias hill, below the church of St. Dimitrios.
It consists of an underground complex of cabins and tunnels that was used for storing ammunition and military equipment during the Second World War. In recent years, the Shelter has been preserved as a memorial to the Cretan resistance to the Nazi occupation.
The Battle of Crete began on May 20, 1942, when Nazi Germany launched an airborne invasion codenamed Operation Mercury. Greek and allied forces, along with Cretan civilians, defended the island. The battle was unprecedented in the history of war, because it was the first time that the German paratroopers were massively deployed and the first time that German troops encountered heavy resistance among a civilian population. The operation resulted in heavy losses for the German parachutist and Hitler did not approve any other large-scale airborne operations. For historians all over the world, the Battle of Crete is considered one of the most heroic actions of the Second World War in Greece.
When the entire island of Crete came under the control of the occupying forces, part of the German forces moved to the village of Platanias. The hill of the typical village was chosen primarily as the strategic location for controlling both land and sea. Despite other military constructions, such as trenches and machine guns, the Germans have also decided to build the war shelter. The exact place, under the main church of the village, was chosen because the temple itself offered natural protection against aerial bombardments and because the rare soft rock was easy to dig. Within six months, local forced laborers were able to dig a 120-meter-long underground tunnel.
The booths, a main shelter entrance and two livelihoods were also built. Sixty years later, the church committee of Platanias and the villagers decided to reconstruct the war residence and use it as a small WWII museum in memory of the Battle of Crete.

Eaton & # 39; s body was found in a network of tunnels used by the Nazis to store ammunition after the Battle of Crete in 1941, which saw the Germans triumph and overwhelm the island until 1945, when they surrendered to the British after years of strong opposition from local citizens.
Greek authorities say they are working on the theory that she was murdered elsewhere and that her body was transported to the bunker after her death.
She was found 200ft within the network by a few citizens who informed the authorities on Monday.
The place where it was found is particularly difficult to access because there is a tree at the entrance. Greek media reports indicate that the person or persons who place the body of Eaton there know the network of tunnels well.
Eaton's murderers covered her nose and mouth to kill her, Greek corpses say.
The biologist and the mother of the two disappeared somewhere in the afternoon on July 2. Her family thinks she started running because the only things she missed in her hotel room were her running shoes.
She was supposed to attend an event that was part of a conference where she was on the island at 6 p.m. but never turned up.
Relatives have previously guessed that she may have died as a result of exposure to heat or exhaustion and that they may be hiding in the cave during a run in the stifling afternoon heat.
What actually happened was much sinister, say local authorities.
Eaton – who was a research leader at the Max Planck Institute for Molecular Cell Biology and Genetics in Dresden, Germany – was traveling to attend a conference.
Family members said they believed they might overheat at the 88 ° C temperatures and enjoy shelter where they suffered during a medical emergency.
The only things she missed from where she stayed were her running shoes. Her passport and wallet were still in her hotel room.
Coroners, S. Belivanis and A. Papadomanalakis took into account the theory that her death was an accident and regarded him as a murder by suffocation.
Eaton & # 39; s niece Callie Broaddus told CrimeOnline earlier that she will usually run on paths and roads, especially somewhere with steep edges.
Eaton & # 39; s body was found about a 17-minute drive from the location of its conference in the Gonia area, in Kolympari.
Both the bunker and the Orthodox Academy – where they stayed – are in the municipality of Platanias. She planned to attend a meeting at 6 p.m. that evening, which she never attended.
Eaton & # 39; s husband is the British scientist Anthony Hyman. He is now supposed to be in Crete. Eaton was also a professor at the Technical University of Dresden in the city where she lived for 25 years
The scene after her body was removed on Monday is shown above
The search mission included "specially trained dogs for land and special equipment for the sea"
Police, firefighters and local volunteers crossed the area with helicopters last Friday
& # 39; It is with immense sadness and regret that we announce the tragic downfall of our dearest friend and colleague, Suzanne Eaton, & # 39; said the Max Planck Institute Tuesday in a statement. & # 39;
& # 39; We are deeply shocked and alarmed by this tragic event.
Suzanne was an excellent and inspiring scientist, a loving husband and mother, an athlete and a truly wonderful person who is loved by all of us.
& # 39; Hair loss is unbearable. Our thoughts and prayers are with her husband Tony, her sons Max and Luke, and with her entire family. & # 39;
& # 39; The authorities have not yet completed their investigation into the events on Tuesday afternoon, July 2, and we will provide further updates as we receive information &, said the institute.
Eaton was also a professor at the Technical University of Dresden in the city where she lived for 25 years.
& # 39; There are many observations that challenge such a theory, including the heat of the day, suggesting that swimming would have been more attractive, & # 39 ;, the institute said.
Greek rescue workers reported that there are ongoing & # 39; intensive investigations in the area of Kolymbari & # 39;
This photo shows the Hellenic Rescue Team Heraklion and examines a map of the area where Dr. Eaton went missing
& # 39; In addition to being a leading scientist in her field, Suzanne is a strong athlete, runner and senior black belt in Tae Kwon Do. If someone can find a difficult situation, it's Suzanne. & # 39;
Drones, ships and planes had searched the seas and coastline near Chania for the researcher.
The extensive search for the village of Kolymbari made use of specially trained dogs and equipment needed to search the sea, her friends, family and colleagues said.
& # 39; Then she changed out of her orange dress because we found the dress in her room, & # 39; Broaddus told CrimeOnline.
They said they had taken the same route on a northeastern route the previous day.
A $ 56,000 (€ 50,000) reward was offered to anyone who could help with information.
