A prisoner in prisons, he claimed that he knows the place where Mario’s lifeless body was left and gave the show relevant details.
The “bombshell” information led the “Tunnel” research team to a mountain in Attica.
The witness indicated the place where he hid the macabre secret, in order to calm his mother down after so many years, as he said.
The show’s investigation of the forest unearthed a skull. The mobilization of the Security was immediate. Men from the Crimes Against Life Department rushed to the scene to collect it and send it to a special laboratory for analysis.
The prisoner contacted Security through his lawyer, giving relevant details.
Speaking to “Tunnel”, he said, among other things:
“I have a piece of information… It’s about Mario. For what it is, you now understand. I can’t tell you from here. But what I am telling you is one hundred and one percent certain. I’m talking about your skull, right? There is also the body fifty to a hundred meters above there.”
The prisoner gave the exact spot where the bones were.
“I told you which way to turn and where to go. There is also a church there. On the bridge, there on the stones it is above. The skull is there for sure, you know. I’m 99.999 percent that what I’m telling you is there. So that this mother can rest. Man, I told you who I am. And when I say something, know that it’s true.”
“In the hole you will find his skull…”
The journalist of “Tunnel”, Takis Nikolaou, together with the director, Sotiris Spatharis, headed to the place where the information led. Near Magoula and before Dervenochoria, the show literally “plowed” the difficult part.
The findings are shocking and even the experienced partners of the show could not believe their eyes.
“Do I see bones?”, asked the reporter with the director confirming him. After hours of searching, they located the hole, which the prisoner pointed out and where according to him, Mario’s skull was.
“The skull appears to have a bullet mark. Whoah…” exclaimed the journalist in shock.
The information has been confirmed. The DNA results will show if the skull is indeed that of Marios Papageorgiou, after it will be examined by an anthropologist, or if it belongs to another missing person, who was probably the victim of a murder.
The thread of the developments in this particular case had been unraveled by Angeliki Nikolouli, when on her initiative the trunk of the car of the young man, in which he disappeared, was examined. The traces of blood he found with the help of geneticist Mr. Fitsialos left no doubt that Marios had been kidnapped and brutally murdered.
The “mastermind” of the group that kidnapped and disappeared him was convicted, but never revealed what happened to him and where his body is. Eleven torturous years for his mother, Mrs. Varvara, but also for his grandmother, who died regretting not knowing where the bones of her beloved grandson are.
“Near the skull, you will find his body…”
The investigation of the journalist and the director of the show, continued for a second day in the difficult place indicated by the prisoner. According to his testimony, there are also the bones from the body that must belong to Marios Papageorgiou, who was kidnapped and murdered in 2012.
The investigation was undertaken by the Security Police, who are continuing in order to locate the body as well, according to the instructions of the witness.
