The phone was broken and it was tied with a hose . The survey showed that the mobile of Marios was new and just before his abduction had spoken fromit to his mother. This indicates that while Basantis met with the alleged mastermind for the first call, Marios had already been attacked. Another element that is revealed through the interview, is that the main accused who always was dressed in costumes, the of the abduction wore athletic clothes.

“He drove very fast through the stream”
According to another witness a black BMW car, one or two days after the kidnapping was moving with high speed into a stream that leads to Gerania Mountains, at Kinetta.

This is a man aged 40 year old , with short brown hair .
On the night of 9th to August 10th, the kidnappers must have washed the car of Marios to clean the blood of the victim from the trunk. Indeed, the kidnappers had forgotten to tighten a screw.
