He was listening loud Kazantzidis songs, and took a short break from his afternoon coffee to speak to Tunnel again.
What he said about the night of death, the burial, the heroine trade, but also for those who knew, freeze the blood …
He claimed that his brother took away the money from the victim without telling him but then he took the money himself. He gave them the same day to the Greek drug dealer of the area, who, after the mess that happened, retired and another took over!
Alistrati’s residents complained to Tunnel that the two brothers, since they were released and returned to their house that became the tomb of Vasilis, did not hesitate to openly threaten those who broke their silence and spoke on the show about what was happening in front of their eyes.
Mother of Vasilis, full of anger and indignation, stoically awaited the execution of the second necropsy by the expert appointed by her outside the hospital of Komotini. A few hours later, she farewell to her firstborn at his birthplace.
Trying to keep her anger, she wondered how the mother of her son’s “friends” could come out to this yard and drink her coffee, knowing that under her feet her child was buried…
The technical counselor of the Coroner and Public Health doctor Socrates Tsandiris told Tunnel that after the end of the specialized laboratory tests he would be able to come to a clear conclusion on the conditions of the unfortunate young man’s death.
What did the lawyer say in the “Tunnel”?
In his telecommunication with the Tunnel, the lawyer of the family Nikos Dialinas said:
“After what has come to light, we see that there is a drug trafficking felony, and the two brothers should be summoned as defendants, even for commission, to start unwinding the skein. The money that the victim had on him was a motive.
Any third party involvement should be investigated and we will ask for immediate representation. “
The burial, the death merchant and the mother who knew …
Early in the afternoon there was quietness in the neighborhood … From the house where the unfortunate Vassilis was buried, the sound of Akis Panou’s song was heard: “My whole life is a cigarette …” . Dogs were barking from far away …
Tunnel ‘s reporter walked up the hill and found in front of the yard that became the 37-year-old man’s tomb …
His two “friends” were drinking coffee listening to Kazantzidis. The one who had spoken to Tunnel approached the journalist at the yard door…
His brother followed him, began to apologize and explain. The other reacted badly: “Go away, go … Let me talk. I did what I did. You did not do anything … “.
Once the spirits calmed down he spoke to Tunnel with his back turned:
“I want to apologize to his family… To God to forgive me, what else to say …”
When the reporter asked him why he had lied to her the previous time, he claimed he did not tell the truth because he was afraid.
He said that on the day in question, Vasilis entered the house, went to a room and used drugs. When after a while his “friend” went to see what he was doing, he found him frozen.
“I saw that his heart had stopped, and I began to slap him on the face. I was afraid to call an ambulance, because TV cameras would arrive here! I was afraid to get involved because I had heard of another similar story and this one got arrested and they incriminated him … And another time I saved his life with using salt, I have saved other people also… “, he told Tunnel.
He claimedhe buried Vassil in their yard at three o’clock in the morning.
“I buried him alone. My brother could not. He has problems with his back … “.
When the reporter asked him how he managed to carry him after he was declaring sick, he replied that he was well on that day.
He stressed that until that time they had him in a room their mother did not understand them. Then he confronted his words and at first he claimed he told his mother about the incident the following day, then claimed that he told her before burying him.
He also said that his mother, while Vassilis was buried in the courtyard of their home, was discussing with him what would happen to his relatives who were seeking him.
“And I thought about it from the first moment, but I said it would take a while …!”.
When the reporter asked why he did not think of surrendering, he replied:
“No! Why to surrender? I told them about it and I said come and I will tell you where he is … “.
He claimed he did not know that the victim had money on him and that his brother took them. Then he threw his jacket into a trash, along with his cell phone.
“We were looking for him if he had identity card or other documents on him to get rid of them. My brother found the money but he did not tell me about it and kept it. He was going to the hospital and before he left, he gave me about 650 euros. ”
“Yes, but you buried him with his identity card and his purse. Only the money were missing, “the journalist replied.
“I do not know anything about a wallet. My brother took the money and did not say anything to anyone. That same day I got them all and gave them to a merchant! Here in the village! To the one who gives us the heroin, “was his answer. He stressed that he is Greek who even wondered where the two brothers found so much money. After the bustle that broke out, he withdrew and another became the supplier!
“I did not want to accept him. The taxi driver told you that he heard him talking to me on the phone … But Vasilis came and knocked the doors … I thought he had only fifty Euros on him. In another pocket had the big money! But my brother did not tell me. “he told the reporter of the show.
He argued that at first he thought of taking him in order not to find him in his house, but then he decided to bury him for not to incriminate him!
When the reporter told him that everything that preceded it shows a method and that everything he said during the investigation was a lie, he replied:
“In my place what would you say? I apologize to the relatives, but what kind of apologize they want? Whatever happened was done. I will suffer the consequences, for what I did…
Alistrati: Threats After Disclosure …
Following the revelations by “Tunnel” in the town of Alistratis, the inhabitants departed their fears and decided to break the law of silence that prevailed in their region for years.
It seems that the developments have particularly bothered the protagonists of this incredible story, who did not hesitate to openly threaten some of the residents.
A witness who had spoken during the investigations on the show about what was happening in front of everyone’s eyes, was admitted to the front attack by one of the two perpetrators who were released.
One day before the second necropsy in the unfortunate young man at the hospital of Komotini, one of the two brothers who buried him in his yard, stopped in front of the witness in his cafeteria and began to cry out to him:
“I’ll bury you … If you’re messing with us, we’ll bury you …”
After a little while, the threats started again: “I’m crazy, I will burn your shop… “
The witness informed the police and told him that if he threatened him again he could file a lawsuit against him.
Komotini: Concentrating findings after the second necropsy …
Outside the hospital of Komotini, where the second necropsy took place, the technical counselor appointed by the family spoke to the show’s camera.
Athens Coroner and Public Health Doctor Socrates Tsandiris said that no injuries were caused by violence on the body of the unfortunate young man. Considering, however, that some additional data had to be investigated, due to the advanced sepsis, it took samples of organs to be sent for specialized examinations.
He added that the serum content contained in the fine syringe found in the body would be sent for testing to see what kind of substance it had in and if the blood was found belonged to the victim.
During the second examination, samples of the body nails sent for examination were also taken.
“All the evidence will be sent together for laboratory tests, along with biological fluids and organ and tissue samples. We should wait for a reasonable period of time to see if pulmonary edema as a symptom is due to substance abuse. Until the end of the laboratory tests, we cannot say clearly if he was buried alive. We must study and interpret all the findings. We have not found traces of external violence. But a syringe was found in his hands without a needle, and all of that must be appreciated, “Mr Tsantiris said.
“How on earth his mother was drinking coffee over my child’s body?”
With as much composure as possible, the unfortunate mother, of Vasilis, spoke to “Tunnel” outside the hospital of Komotini, where his body was examined for the second time.
From the very first moment the claims of her son’s “friends” about the way he lost his life did not convince her. For this reason, she appointed a special expert.
“We will have to wait for six months to complete the toxicological and histological examinations to be sure what really happened. The fact that they buried him at the foundations of their house makes me ask for their punishment. I have heard that in the village where he was buried, the inhabitants are terrified, but the police do nothing. Today is my own child, tomorrow it may be someone else’s … ” she pointed out.
When Vasilis was lost, despite the constant complaints of herself in Germany and his grandmother in the Prossotsani section, the authorities accepted the declaration of his disappearance after three weeks. She said the police officers did not let the relatives contact Angeliki Nikolouli on the pretext that this would damage the investigations.
“Until then I trusted them that something would do, something would be found …”, she said.
She believes that in the house where Vasilis found tragic death is not only frequent by drug users but by members of a whole circuit.
“I cannot rule out the involvement of a police man, otherwise there would be no reason to protect the people who buried my child in such a way,” she said.
She described her son as a very good kid and denied the rumors that he grew up in his teenage years with his grandmother.
“Vasilis grew up with us in Germany where we came when he was five months old. In Greece he returned to become a soldier. His brother suggested that he return to Germany to make a fresh start, but he came and left again. It was his own choice and he was at an age where we could not do anything, “his mother told Tunnel.
“With what heart was she living in this house? With what soul did she sleep, eat and went to the puddle while she knew there was a child buried there beside her? That’s great inhumanity … I demand justice and to be punished as they deserve. What I feel is anger, anger and I cannot express myself as a mother who has lost her child … I hope God helps these children who have the age of my son and their mother, to understand what have they done to me … My Vasilis will not come back. But those who are responsible I want to be punished. We will wait for the results of the Forensic. Who knows if he was buried alive? ” she said with a tight voice.
Tragic figure the grandmother of Vassilis who had moved the viewers. The words of the old lady stood up, and the time for her stopped in hearing the death of her beloved grandson.
“For me life comes to an end. I do not want anything anymore … ” she said to” Tunnel “.
