It seems that the Authorities had found a specific person, a 36-year-old Albanian, against whom the Investigator had issued an international arrest warrant, who at that time was working as a laborer on the island and immediately after the crime left Aegina and then as was proven by the country.
The perpetrator was located in Malta and after he was identified and the local authorities found that an international warrant for homicide was pending against him, they proceeded to arrest him.
The perpetrator allegedly broke into the house of the unfortunate 71-year-old Irini Marmarinou through the window in the early hours of November 30, 2015. Afterwards, he allegedly immobilized the elderly woman and her nephew Lambros Protonotarios.
He tied them up, tortured them horribly to tell him where her money and valuables were, as there was a strong rumor in the area that due to the financial crisis, she kept large sums of money in her house from a large withdrawal she had made.
He then led them to a room in the house and burned them alive, possibly in an attempt to erase his tracks, which turned out to be completely unsuccessful, as an item was found in the area, namely a cap.
DNA was extracted from this cap and attributed to the possible perpetrator. Among the people who were then examined by the Police for the case, there were also some Albanian workers on the island, all relatives with whom this DNA matched, but not completely and one of them had left the island at that time and did not never came back. His absolute involvement in the case is expected to be established when he comes to Greece and of course to establish if there were accomplices in this crime, which is considered almost certain.
After his arrest in Malta, the legal proceedings for his extradition to our country are ongoing.
