In his speech, the public prosecutor has suggested the prosecuted guilty to the murder of Tonia Zoeva. He stressed that he had fallen into too many contradictions and could not justify how so many scattered blood stains with the woman’s DNA were found at home and in his car.
His claim that he left her in Missiria, Rethymnon is not substantiated by either cameras or eyewitnesses, the prosecutor said. All calls to Zoeva had been deleted from his cellphone as well as from the victim’s cellphone, but were certified by the mobile carrier.
Concluding, the prosecutor said that the defendant, after killing her, carried the car to a place where he threw it and tried to hide the traces by sponging the blood and deleting calls between them.
The apology of the accused
In his apology, the 60-year-old Cretan man denied the charge of murdering his girlfriend Tonia Zoeva who disappeared from Rethymnon in May 2018 while he was at home.
He claimed that he had a casual relationship with Zoeva and stayed home for some time. She claimed that she was afraid of a Syros she was related to, who threatened and beat her but nevertheless the victim returned to him.
Trying to justify the blood stains and scars found in the bathroom and the sink, he said it might have been from shaving her legs. As for the blood stains on the sheets, pillows and the car, she claimed that it may have been blood from past blows. The defendant claimed that the night before her disappearance she had taken her by car and left her in Mystery to meet Syros.
Tunnel’s investigation had revealed from the very beginning the suspicious role of Zoeva’s comrade with significant testimonies that came to light.
