The 35-year old Albanian James Claude Lesi remains disappeared. On the day of Epiphany he killed with multiple stabs his wife Lela Mavromati 41 year old in Ormylia Halkidiki and grabbed their four-year-son Phoebus. The crime took place in front of the eyes of the eldest son who is just six year old.
While authorities are looking for him and the child in Greece and abroad, he allegedly contacted known criminal lawyer in Athens. Only the lawyer has talked about it several days after the murder and abduction after the meeting leaked in telecast. Alexis Kougias is not sure if the man he met on the beach Pachi Megara is the wanted Albanian or a partner of his. In a statement, among others Mr. Kougias says James Claude Lesi asked him to take over his defense. The lawyer said he would only do that if he previously returne the 4 year old Phoebus to his family.
The well-known lawyer reportedly told the police that father of Phoebus came to the meeting with a green car and wore a cap to hide his facial features.
Authorities consider among others the possibility he is hiding in Athens. The anxiety for little Phoebus grows and for his disappearance has meant Amber Alert. For this reason citizens are to communicate with the telephone numbers 23710-21610, 23710-21621, from 23,710 to 21,642, 23710-21668 at Police station of Polygyros.
