In a murder mystery fit for prime time, scientists say they have solved the 3,000-year-old killing of one of Egypt’s last great pharaohs.

The first CT scans to examine the king’s mummy reveal a deep cut to the neck, reports the BBC. The cut had been hidden by bandages for centuries. The deep wound 2.7 inches (7cm) wide, was found just under the larynx, and could have caused immediate death, according to medical scientists.

“I have almost no doubt about the fact that Ramses III was killed by this cut in his throat,” said paleopathologist Albert Zink of the EURAC Institute for Mummies and the Iceman in Italy, according to the AFP.
