The mother of the unfortunate Costis Polyzos and his stepfather from the early hours of finding their child’s body in their field were surprised and contradicted. Angeliki Nikolouli and journalists of the show spoke daily with them.
The apathy and coldness of the mother, surprised the viewers and caused their indignation.
On the one hand she told the reporter that they did not want to go to the point where Kostis was found and on the other side in the presence of neighbors, she cried out saying that the police did not let her go to the place with a flower for her murdered child.
The show also showed the deep research all these five years.
The loans they had loaded on Kostis and the forgery of documents.
The fake scenario that supposedly Costis disappeared with the driver of an unknown car the night with the storm.
The course of the father’s farm car, the sale and the blood in the hood .
The traces of Costis Polyzos were lost in a stormy night, from his house to Siatista. It was Feb. 18, 2011. Fifteen days later, his mother and his stepfather asked for Tunnel assistance for his search. The answer to his fate was given seven months later when a hunter’s dogs found his corpse in a field belonging to his stepfather. Just a few hours before the macabre revelation, the “satanic” couple gave another “show” in the studio of the show.
The “show” of the mother, stepfather and brother
When in March 2011 Despina Koutsegou and her husband Christos Dyos appeared in Tunnel for the disappearance of the 23 year old son of the Kostis Polyzos family, the thread of an unprecedented for the Greek time cases began to unfold.
From the first investigations, Angeliki Nikolouli revealed evidence of killing. However, no one imagined that it would take five years of thorough research and revelations, twelve broadcasts, repeated reports of Tunnel in the case, and long-term testimony by the reporter to Investigators, in order to guide the authorities in their arrest.
The “satanic” couple was hosted in Tunnel three times before deciding to allow the show to get into their house in Siatista for research. With an irrefutable witness the camera, the first contradictions of the circumstances under which the child was lost were first recorded.
A well-done “performance” of Costi’s mother and his half-brother that he talked to an unknown driver in the rain with which he must eventually leave the house. Evidence that has never been confirmed by anyone else. Continuing research on the show brought more questions about the role of mother and father of unlucky young.
Catalytic was from the beginning the help of friend and neighbor of Kostis, Spyros Kalamboukas. The 23-year-old had visited him on the fateful night before he disappeared, and then he returned to his home just across to sleep.
Spyros insisted from the first moment that his friend was not willing to come out and he excluded the possibility that he would leave with someone unknown who, as the family claimed, had stopped outside the house with his car. The friend of unfortunate Kostis had then filed with the authorities about the suspicious moves of his mother, who was trying to incriminate him for the disappearance of her son.
The dogs found Kosti’s body
A few months later on Friday, September 23, 2011, Koutsegou-Dios couple appeared again in Tunnel with unprecedented composure that did not fit into people who had lost their child. In almost a metaphysical way as if the unfortunate soul of Kostis was thirsty for vindication and rest, just the next day the dogs of a hunter in the area seized his corpse in a land owned by his stepfather in the place of Pasha Bridge at the border of Grevena – Kozani. The hunter did not immediately notify the Authorities of the macabre finding. He saw a dream with the unlucky young man pointing to the point of his burial.
Two days later he notified the police. Costi’s mother did not go immediately go at the point, to ask, to be interested. As she had never said to the Police that the field found her son half-eaten by the dogs and buried vertically on the soil with the clothes he wore when he disappeared, belonged to her husband. When the hunter spoke to “Tunnel” for her indifference, she went excited to see him.
The reporter has yet revealed a shocking piece of evidence about the child’s body. The corpse from the basin and below, was solid, deep buried in the grave. His image had then given many answers to the hot questions of the Authorities, but they did not use them. She wore a style pants and was barefoot. As much as they dug more deeply, the police did not find any sports shoes. The forensic scientist determined the time of death in the period when he disappeared. The way they were assassinated, it could not be ascertained why, from the middle and above, the corpse was dissolved by the wild animals and the dogs of the region.
The conversations they had not been published
September 27, 2011
With the revelation that Costiw corpse was found a reporter of Tunnel, contacted his mother and his stepfather who were not together at the time. The coldness with which they spoke about the event was proverbial. Christos Dyos was saying and re-informed that the Police did not give them any information and that the corpse should be at the point one to two years. He did not respond directly if the field found was his own and he was trying to disorient the journalist by saying “we do not know details, they say it has been found near a warehouse of beekeepers. Resque teams had been searching in the area, my father and my engineer have gone there, but they have not seen anything. “
Despina Koutsegou, rigid and cold, unlike what her husband , told the Tunnel: “We do not know who the corpse belongs to if it is a man or a woman, or what age he or she has. It is our own warehouse that is there. We did not go to the spot but we have sent people to see. We hope it’s not Costis. “ Without any emotion or anxiety, she was trying to get information from the reporter, as ifs he had spoken to the police and wondered how the news was leaked!
September 28, 2011
The next day that Angeliki Nikolouli contacted Despina Koutsegou, she had not yet given blood to the Authorities for identification with the corpse. At the same time she was still talking with unprecedented composure. She told the reporter that she could not figure out who could do Kostis harm as he was quiet and did not make strange friendships. She insisted they had told police officers that their field belonged to them and that they had no differences with other people as a family.
When Angeliki Nikolouli told her that everything that her yping son told the reporter did not convince her and that it looked as if someone had directed him, Koutsigou responded: “What do you say Angeliki, who could have manipulated him ? “The reporter insisted and asked if she had told her all the truth. “What mother could hide something about her dead child?” Was her answer. Then she tried to turn suspicions to his grandfather and uncle Kostis from the side of his biological father. “Whoever did it must be punished,” then told the reporter. Anxiously, she was trying to learn the content of a testimony that had come to the show and Angeliki Nikolouli had not deliberately revealed.
September 29, 2011
As long as the developments were running, and the police did not stop broadcasting news about the case that had angered public opinion, the couple did not even reach the field where the corpse of unfortunate Kostis was found. Despina Koutsegou, in a telephone conversation with a journalist from Tunnel on September 29th, said: “We have heard something new, they have forbidden us from the Police to talk about the case.” She was talking about the clothes of this man who was found like this “man” was not her child, but some stranger who did not care about. Her words were still surprising but also indignant. “Nobody went to the field from us. . If we were going, we would find trouble because all suspicions fall on us. “
When the reporter asked her if there had been an accident that fatal night at thw house, she responded strongly: “Is it possible for a mother to kill her child? Because there are sick brains, it does not mean that the parents kill their children. “She continued to complain to the reporter because no one from ” Tunnel “told her what they were saying about the show. At the same time, the camera had recorded her to pour fake tears in front of neighbors and to say, “They do not let us leave a flower in the place where our child was found dead that did not hurt anyone.”
Despina Koutsegou contacted again with the show. She asked not to mention something that would cause mess of confused information to her, she said, but her deepest desire was another. To finally learn what it was that the witness had revealed to Angeliki Nikolouli for the fatal night Costis. was lost.
October 7, 2011
Clinging to the phrase “They are two-legged monsters, the monsters who killed Kostis …” Despina Koutsego a few days after the accidental revelation of her child’s body was found in Siatista and the presence of friends and relatives began to lament … Speaking to Angeliki Nikolouli was trying to show another image. ” what they say kills him every day. Costis was an angel , he became an angel, “she told the reporter in the last conversation. “I want my soul to calm down, I want to kiss my child,” she said, crying for a moment, and the other recruited her familiar temper to try to reverse the climate against her. “My little son is afraid and asks if those who killed Kostis will kill us too”. When she told Angeliki Nikolouli that Kostis funeral will be in Eleusis and not in his birthplace in Siatista, where his biological father is buried, the reporter noticed that this would cause anger and stir up people. “I can not have my kid away from me” was her disarming response.
As long as Kostis Polyzou’s case was in the checkers of the investigating authorities, Tunnel continued in-depth the methodical investigation. In March 2014, using important information on the show, explored the route of the country car of Kostas’ father, who sold it a few months after his disappearance. The survey showed that Christos Dios addressed a car seller in the area to sell his 4×4 Nissan Navara rural car. The seller had a great impression on how dirty it was when he handed it to him. He was forced to send it to a car wash where it was washed by biological cleaning eleven times. The owner of the car wash had testified to the police that he had spotted red spots on the seat, the back door and the wallpaper that despite his effort did not clear…
Tunnel then identified the new owner of the car in a city in Northern Greece, who was willing to help with the investigation. The hood of the farmer’s wheelchair had rust marks inside. Emergency geneticist and expert Mr. George Fitsialos examined the hood. As in the case of Marios Papageorgiou, the special detection method showed human blood inside the hood. Unfortunately, due to cleansing, long-term exposure and exposure to adverse weather conditions, this genetic material could not be identified.
New research cycle of “Tunnel” with revealing evidence
The testimonies that have been gathering by Tunnel over the years have illuminated the dark landscape. The fatal rainy night of February 18, 2011, witnessed Kostis entering his house but nobody saw him coming out. Also, no testimony confirmed what his half-brother’s younger brother claimed. That he was talking to someone who had stopped with his car outside the house. The Tunnel had revealed that Costis had taken in the name of exorbitant loans on behalf of his mother and his stepfather. Banks were demanding the outstanding and unpaid installments of two men with the same name and surname. In June 2011, Costi’s mother and stepfather appeared at the KEP of Kozani with a fake request asking for the signature of the dead child to be subject to the Katseli law for over-indebted households.
In April 2014 Archibishop of Siatista Pavlos, with his intervention, had carried the indignation of people of Siatista for the obstruction of the Authorities around the case. As he had said, he was wondering with such impressive evidence that had come to light why the culprit was not arrested. At that time she had publicly referred to Angeliki Nikolouli’s effective investigation and demanded the vindication of the young man.
What did the “satanic” couple say to the hunter
The reporter of Tunnel again was found himself with the hunter whose own prophetic dream led to the unveiling of the body of the unfortunate young man. As he told her, the couple had come to meet him. “They told me that everyone was blaming them and then I told the mother: Look at this bitch with her puppies. Try to take away one of her puppies to see how she will react. You did not even look for your child. ” He was impressed by the fact that both were cold . It was a long time ago when he learned that shortly after finding their dead child, they were having fun at a local fest…
Since the child’s body was found, he goes every year at that point he was found and lights up a candle in his memory.
The burned oils and the darkened corpse …
He spoke of another incident that a firefighter who was then involved in the investigations had noticed. Near the warehouse with the beehives in the field of Dios, there was a huge slick of car oils. As he toldTunnel, he asked about it Kostis stepfather Christos Dios and he told him that at that point he had changed the oils of his rural car. The hunter said to “Tunnel” that the quantity he saw at that point was bigger and did not justify a simple change of oil. Asked by the reporter if they had attempted to burn the child before burying, he remembered the image of dead Kostis, who stood in the pit. As he mentioned the clothes he wore, which were the same as he had seen the fateful night at his home, they were tanned as if burned.
Vassilis Polyzos, the uncle of Kostis, spoke to “Tunnel”. “All Greece waited for this evolution. Even now Costis’ soul is justified “was his first words. He remembers asking his nephew not to listen to his mother’s prompting and not to sell the family house his father left him. But Costis listened to her blindly. He did not have a good relationship with Despina, and it was not impressive that he was trying to incriminate him for the crime, as he did with his best friend Spyros Kalamboukas. “Especially with Spyros they were like brothers, they grew up together,” he said.
His concern is to try to bring his niece’s bones to his native Siatista, next to those of his father, George Polyzos. The death of Costi’s father years ago was originally attributed to heart shock. Now his file was opened for further investigation.
Spyros, who, from the very beginning, was trying to help the authorities and the broadcast, spoke of the indifferent attitude of Despina Koutsegou towards her oldest son. He knew he was trying to turn to those suspicions. “As long as she was here in Siatista, she did not show it to me. She is now looking to save herself and blame me, “he said. As he told Tunnel, he received a call from Costis mother after finding his friend’s corpse. She told him not to go back to the show because it was not good for her family. “I did what I could do to help the police, Angeliki and Costis to find the truth,” he said. After the arrest of the Satanic couple he saw his friend in his dream. Costis smiled as if he were grateful.
