The investigation of the expert appointed by the family of the unfortunate Maria Iatrou from Loutraki was shocking.
Specialist researcher Yannis Roussis talks about a second car that hit the unfortunate woman, pulled her out of the way and was literally pinned to the sea.
In her car, and specifically in the left mirror, he found traces of black color.
This element, along with others he was able to find at the site of the accident, differed from those of the Traffic Police of Amphilochia.
Cutting the tall grasses into the space, he discovered other parts of the car, which, according to his research, hit rocks at low speed.
“After the accident the road was asphalted. Perhaps if that had not happened, we could find other elements that would lead us to the culprit responsible for the death of Maria Iatrou, ” Mr. Roussis said .
Angeliki Nikolouli asked her husband if someone had a reason to deliberately take her out of the way.
“I do not think anyone has hit her deliberately. I believe that an unconscious driver pushed her to death, “replied Aristides Antonopoulos.
“They hit the mother’s car and she fell into the sea …”
The family, in trying to locate findings that would illuminate the conditions under which Maria was lost, called for the help of a local worker to scrutinize the site. In the presence of the lawyer and the expert, he cut the grasses that had surpassed one meter in height. Then parts of Maria’s car were uncovered, which had not been detected before.
“Among the many components we gathered a piece of plastic was found near the rocks and the car apron. I found it damaged and I tried to find out how they were created. According to my research the damage to the apron came from the rocks, which means that the car fell to the sea from this point but from a different angle from that which claims the Traffic Police of Amphilochia, “he said.
According to the Traffic Police, Iatrou’s car crossed a distance of thirty-two meters at a speed. The expert at the point of the rocks measured twenty-one meters.
“Our claim is that something happened to the unfortunate driver as she was on the road and was forced to turn her car to the right side. She barked on the rocks as the evidence we have found shows us, leading to the sea, “said Mr. Roussis
In his investigation the expert separated the damage on the vehicle to primary and secondary. To those caused as long as it was on the pavement, to those that resulted from the fall but also by the car’s lifting off the sea.
“A blow on the front left fender reinforces the possibility of another car probably from the same direction, to hit the car that was led by the unfortunate Maria. This has the effect of crashing the fender, the hood opened, the driver got upset suddenly and maneuvering to the right of the road, “the expert said.
The man who accidentally spotted the plate of the Iatrou’s car and gave the solution to the mystery of her disappearance after fourteen days, spoke to “Tunnel”.
He found himself in the spot to help a driver who had damaged his car. When he finished and tried to start his motorbike and leave, he fell over the debris and saw the plate. He thought it belonged to a policeman who had lost his life in an accident in the same place. He took the plate and handed it to the Traffic Police.
There the police officers found that the plate belonged to the missing driver and kept the witness testify.
Then he pointed to the police officers the spot and then saw that there was oil in the sea from the car, which because of its color did not stand out. Directly they called a diver who spotted the sunken vehicle.
He told the show that there were too many fatal accidents at this point.
People were in the church and at the back side was the mother dead…
At the point where the unfortunate Maria’s car was turned, there is the holy temple of St. George where every year many people celebrate and visit it.
As the ecclesiastic commissioner Kostas Fragoulis said to “Tunnel”, that the people who were there were mainly in the church and in the courtyard. But no one realized what had happened on the back of the temple.
“Most of us knew from TV that they were looking for the girl, but the information was saying she was heading to Arta. The road, however, leads to Vonitsa and Preveza. Unfortunately, no one noticed then that a part of the protective wall above the sea was cut off by the fall of the car. To see it, he should go to the back of the church, “he said.
The camera followed him to the point where the low wall was destroyed by the car before it was found in the sea.
” Waters are not very deep, but no one came here to see the car and alert the authorities,” the commissioner said.
He also said that after this accident on the pavement were placed protective bars.
The family, through its legal representative, Mr. Gikas, filed a petition to the Agrinio Prosecutor’s Office and a supplementary one recently.
“For eight months, the forensic report has not yet been delivered as we wait for the results of the toxicology tests. Once the process is completed, I hope that the expert’s conclusions will be evaluated, prosecution will be conducted and we will move more organized, “Mr. Gikas said.
The family of Maria had asked for the help of the show in April 2017 to find herself after she was declared missing. When the lights went out, “Tunnel” became messenger of bad news… This case had particularly sensitized the viewers.
