There are cases of reported disappearances, including the 57-year-old Christina Exarchoulea, who was lost in October 2017 from the region of Stoupa, Messinia.
The bones were found by a hunter on Sunday afternoon on April 14, 2019, at Leika Kalamata and immediately alerted the authorities. Police officers found a scalp segment, bone fragments, and scraps of clothing.
Among the findings was a small bag, a ring, female bracelets, a watch, two phone cards, a brassiere, a pantyhose, a short pants , a coat and a jacket.
The bones and clothes were transferred to the Nafplion Forensic Service for further examination and anthropological analysis.
According to the Coroner of Nafplio, Mr. Nikos Kokakidis, almost all of the bones make up a human skeleton. An anthropological examination will be conducted to determine gender in the forensic science of the University of Athens. A sample of genetic material was taken from the bones in order to identify with specimens of people whose disappearance was declared, with Christina’s case being the most appropriate as it fits geographically.
For the case of Exarchoulea, genetic material obtained from relatives from the Kardamili Police Department is available.
One of her sisters was called upon by the Authorities to recognize some of the objects but did not remember any of them.
