Angeliki Nikolouli’s research unfolded the confusing thread of this case and brought to light the modern “Medea” that shocked the panhellenic.
On February 18, 2011, that night of the storm, the traces of Kostis Polizos 23 year old at the time were lost, in Siatista, Kozani. His mother Despina Koutsego was presented to Tunnel as an unhappy mother, worried about her child’s fate, and asking people to help her “to find her child”.
After seven months, a hunter had accidentally spotted his body and in his stepfather’s estate, at the place of Passa Bridge in the border of Grevena-Kozani. He did not immediately notify the police. It was September 24, 2011.
Since then the dead man’s mother has begun a theater of absurdity starring. The mother who rushed to bury her son away from his place, in the “foreign” to everyone Elefsina. The mother, who, in her attempt to keep her secret reprimanded, did not hesitate to force her 12-year-old son, Kosti’s half-brother, to false testimony.
“They used their young child as a false witness . They asked him to say a scenario and created an alibi, ” revealed the reporter. Angeliki Nikolouli insisted from the first moment that Kostis Polizos was not kill that night by some random men who went to his house with an unknown car, as his brother, as an “eyewitness”, described.
After the discovery of Kosti’s body in a conversation between Angeliki Nikolouli and the mother, the modern Medea said: “Do you think my child is happy now Angeliki? Because my child is an angel and is in heaven … ”
The show had evidence that the story of the couple and the half-brother of the deceased was not the real thing.
“I listened to the little one describing the facts and did not convince me. Did someone else ask him to tell those things? ” the reporter asked the mother. “I have the impression that you have not told me the truth for that night. It’s like you hiding something “she told her directly to get the following answer:
“I want you to tell me Angelika … What mother that the corpse of her child was found and hide something she knows? Every parent loves their children. ”
After five and a half years of persistent “Tunnel” research with “key”- witnesses covering the gaps, after incredible spells of Justice with constant changes in Investigators taking over the case, the “Satanic Couple” in January 2016 took the road to prison.
The research of Tunnel proved that once Kostis matured, they were forced him to take under his name loans on their own behalf. According to testimonies that arrived at the show, the installments remained unpaid and the banks were asking for money from two men with the same name.
They had taken care that bank letters and extracts were not sent home, but to the addresses of the two men who reacted and briefed Police. Shortly after the disappearance on June 22, 2011, Kosti’s mother and his father did not hesitate to appear in relevant servise and, with a fake request with the signature of the dead child, they asked for official papers. They wanted the 200,000 euros loan that Kostis had taken under his name to buy a house in Halkidiki and a rural truck for earthworks.
They were aiming for the banks to stop searching for themselves and looking for Kosti, whose body was not found at that time.
Angeliki Nikolouli revealed in the show details about the tomb of the unfortunate young man. Perpendicular to the point, there were branches that were cut from the surrounding trees, and along with other spiny shrubs, they were used as a fencing to prevent the tomb from approaching. Then the question was reasonably raised: the owner of the field, who frequently visited after keeping his honeycombs there, did not notice the fencing with the cut branches?
Angeliki testified in the trial of the “Satanic Mother”
The trial of the Kostis murder began on 8 November 2016.
The journalist testified to the Joint Court of Kastoria all that the long and profound research of the Tunnel found out from the day when Kosti’s mother, unhappy, found with his stepfather on the show to look for him as a missing person.
Impression had caused everyone in the studio, the coldness of both Despina Koutsegou and Christos Dios.
During the breaks, the mother was worried about the phone calls from Siatista and said that “there was a climate of tension because the co-villagers believed they were exploiting Kostis economically and considered them responsible for his loss”.
Angeliki Nikolouli in court made special mention of the victim’s young brother.
“We examined specialists with the video of the interview – representing the little one in the garage and the warehouse where, according to the family, Kostis had gone that night to repair a water damage. Experts, psychologists, criminologists and police officers said the little boy was well-read. He seemed to tell a lesson and did not living what he said about that night. “
From the reportage of the show in the neighborhood of Kostis, particular evidence emerged that the young man entered his home to sleep, not to escape.
Referring to the day when Kosti’s body was found, the reporter once again stood in the mother’s indifference: “When they tell you that your child is dead, you dig the earth with nails, you even walk to the place it was found, acting as a mother who hurts … From the first moments the mother only asked us what the witness told us he had seen the fatal night. She was worried that he saw them loading the child’s corpse on the rural car. When my partner asked them if she would go to the spot shereplied “:
“If I go they will say I’m altering the evidence …”
Aggeliki Nikolouli told the court that the investigation of the show around the case never stopped.
“Witnesses reported on the show that in the field where Kostis found had seen a 4×4 car. We found that a similar car had his stepfather who rushed to sell it before the corpse was found. The owner of the garage who bought it first told us he washed it, but it was dirty and smelled bad. Then the byuer took it to the Forensic of Thessaloniki . He had washed it himself , but inside the hood he had some stains he did not know if it was rust or something else. So he sent it to the geneticist Mr. Fitsialos to find out what was in his car … It was found in the laboratory of Mr Fitsalios that it was blood and indeed human. ”
“She is worse than Medea”
Despina Koutsegou, mother of Kostis Polizos and his stepfather Christos Dios, on 16 November 2016 and after an episodic trial with constant interruptions and postponements, were found guilty by the Kastoria Joint Assize Court for killing their child in Siatista, Kozani. The decision was taken after a marathon meeting of jury and ordinary judges lasting five hours.
The First Court sentenced the couple to life imprisonment for the joint murder of 23-year-old Kostis Polizos in February 2011 in Siatista.
In her speech, the prosecutor likened Koutsegou, the mother of the degraded Kostis, with Medea.
“She is worse than Medea, because the accused has been pushed by humble causes,” she said, addressing ordinary magistrates and jurors, calling them “not to forget the soul of Costis.” He must be justified because he had an unfair, terrifying and awful death , to which her mother contributed “. It was such a charging and emotional climax in the courtroom that the audience watching the trial broke into applause.
All these years, even when Alter Channel had problems and Tunnel did not air, Angeliki Nikolouli continued the research.

Questions for Polyzos’ father
Nineteen years later, the family managed to find evidence and witnesses who spoke about what happened on the day when George Polizos, the biological father of Kostis, died.
He was led by his wife and mother Kostis, who is now accused of killing him at the Health Center of Siatista. It had preceded lunch and the image she presented was referring to poisoning. In fact, the Center doctor asked him if he had taken a lot of pills to commit suicide. As the lawyer of Kosti’s biological father’s family said, his death file at the Kozani Hospital was incomplete, “as some have destroyed documents that would incriminate them.” He himself on behalf of the family sued the Hospital officers for destruction of documents.
