Five days after her disappearence her boyfriend confessed his crime and showed to the police officers the exact location where her body was buried. When she asked him to break up, his jealousy and his passion made him mad.

Monika was working also at a tavern in Thessaloniki. That night she left with a colleague of her, took her home saying that she was going to her place because she had a flight early in the morning.
Her friend lived at the same neighbourhood. It seems that he had already planned her murder. Her relatives found her car parked outside their home.

We are sure that he had help and we want the thruth to come out“.

The young man who came forward to the authorities, said that her death was an accident. That night he convinced her to follow him to the house of his cousin outside of Thessaloniki in order to get together again. At some point he saw a message from another man at her mobile and got mad.
