The chronicle of the case
On December 8, 2014, 42-year-old Thanassis Lambrou was found shot in the house of a friend. The deadly revolver covered with his head and the victim’s right hand belonged to his friend. His own was the bloody knife found next to the captain. The same man found him bloodied in his backyard, but police and a doctor arrived much later. Thanassis Lambrou died during his transport to the Kranidi Medical Center.
Angeliki Nikolouli and her colleagues started the investigation after a call from the victim’s sister. Thanassis Lambros’ relatives from the first moment did not believe that the man had committed suicide as initially claimed by the authorities, but that he was murdered. For this reason, a letter was sent to the Minister responsible for requesting the investigation of experienced police officers.
