“Cast” of the horror a retired sailor and a spider woman who disappeared …
The gruesome crime was discovered earlier this year in the heart of Athens. Victim was the seaman Vasilis Kokkinis who was considered missing for a year. The unlucky 63 year old man found literally frozen in a refrigerator, at the apartment of his Bulgarian ex-wife and mother of his child in Kallithea.
The corpse discovered accidentally by a bailiff who went to the house to deliver eviction because she had not paid rent for one year. The 45-year old Boulgarian- Roma Anelia Alesantrova vanished the same time her husband disappeared. No one in the building did not understand that she left for Bulgaria. Not even the owner of the apartment on Eyaggelistrias st that she renτed had not realizedit ! He paid the PPC accounts, so they do not cut the power and the freezer with the corpse of the man, was functioned normally.
The death of Vasilis Kokkinis due to suffocation. As the coroner Sultana Marianou said the victim had brought two injuries on the head. It seems that the victim suffered two strokes that left him unconscious. Then the perpetrator or perpetrators tied his hands and feet, gagged him and put him in the freezer so the suffocating death.
Research in Bulgaria
The Police awaiting the results of the findings in the horror department of forensic labs, to initiate the Bulgarian extradition proceedings.
“Tunnel” came into contact with the Bulgarian journalist Boika Athanasova. The reporter searched on behalf of the show an address in Varna and a phone that hypothetical correspond to Anelia Alesantrova. The investigation had no results. As she told to “Tunnel”, the authorities of her country know where Alesantrova is but expect the Greek authorities for the necessary actions.
The camera “tunnel” at the building of horror
The camera of “Tunnel” was found in the apartment in Kallithea which was hiding for a year the horror. Tenants and former manager stressed that the existence of a corpse beside them in a freezer, was a strong shock for them.
Nobody had contacts with the 45-year old Bulgarian Anelia Alesantrova tenant of the apartment and former husband of the victim, and rare were the times that they saw her with their 13 year old son. The former manager of the building remembers that she had only met once her when she went to the pay communal. Nobody saw her leave after the murder, and had never been an event that would attract attention. For an entire year, the owner of the apartment paid shared in managing and PPC accounts and this is why the freezer which was hiding the corpse was in function.
The scene of a death foretold
About 15 years ago Vasilis Kokkinis during a trip to Varna, Bulgaria, met and fell in love with Anelia who was 30 year old at the time. He helped financially her and her family and brought her with him to Greece to get married and have a family. His wife had another child from a previous marriage who today is 30 year old, but had no contact with him. A remarkable property and a good income was the dowry of the unfortunate man who allegedly the young Bulgarian was interesting in The clouds in the relationship of the couple who in the meantime had a boy, did not take long to appear The woman reportedly often take the child and disappear as Vasilis Kokkinis was trevelling. Private investigators searching huge amounts which vanished through bank accounts with false documents. Abduction of the minor boy and trips to Bulgaria into cartons with vegetables. Prosecution for a host of crimes against the woman and many others, are some of the pieces of the macabre puzzle.
However the Kokkinis forgive all for the sake of the child who wanted to live a quiet life with his mother, since they had parted. In recent years Alesantrova was forced to return to Greece with her little son and stayed in a nearby apartment with the victim in Kallithea and allow the father to visit his son.
The death scene seems to be set up in the New Year of 2015. Fraternal friend of Kokkinis invited him to lunch. He replied that he would first pass through the house of Alesantrova on Eyaggelistrias Street to get his son and to go together. But the sailor never sat at the festive table …
The next day his friend went to Police Station of Kallithea to declare the disappearance stressing that his latter trait was at Alesantrova house and there should be an investigation. The police officers insisted that the missing statement has to be declared by a relative of his and not his friend. The final statement filed on January 15 from his brother. But no one searched at the in the death compartment…
Tragic irony! When Kokkinis has been advised from his friend to be careful that the Bulgarian grab the child again and disappeared, the sailor allegedly replied: “Only over my dead body!”
The freezer in Kallithea “dug” the trunk of Egaleo…
The case of the unfortunate man who was found murdered in a freezer in an apartment in Kallithea, awakened memories of a wild crime was revealed by “Tunnel” in November 2010.
There have been 20 months since the disappearance of Stavros Konstantopoulos 77 year old in April 2009, when his wife found his body in a trunk in the house which was rented to the killer victim at Egaleo. The woman went to clean up the place which had been examined by the police and saw the macabre spectacle. After a while she died with this image.
Shock caused by the fact that the perpetrator – tenant who was arrested the same day and immediately confessed his act, lived for a time in the same house with the corpse of the owner, even throwing bleach and colognes to cover the bad smell.
According to his confession, they had a fight with the elder who had gone to collect the rents owed him and then strangled him. He put a bag on his head, wrapped him in a rug and put him in the basement behind the ladder, dropping rugs over it. After days he put him in a tank that occasionally smelled. Indeed not to initiate suspicions, planned to transfer the body another day. But the reaction of Konstantopoulos son forced him to hand over the keys and so the project was not completed. The perpetrator transported the victim’s car to a point at Iera Odos, locked it and threw the keys into the trash.
“Tunnel” had requested the assistance of the judicial graphologist Mrs. Kambouri who examined the evidence produced by the tenant wanting to convince the family that the owner had gone with the money. It seemed that the missing was then confused, probably under threat.
In the first instance in 2012 court held unanimously sentenced the offender to life in prison. The second court is expected.

Behind was following a blue car that came close, falling over to the witness who were on motorbike. His friend then curbed the plate number but did not think to inform the authorities.
“Tunnel” found the owner of the car blue who is not a resident of Agrinio. As he said to the broadcast reporter was not at that time in the area, nor had given his car to someone else. He claimed that he did not know the teacher, or anything about the case.
“I was not at the crime scene …”
According to another witness while the unlucky Nikos Mentzos was burning alive inside his car, two cars and a motorbike were at the height of the supermarket LIDL. The passengers seemed to watching from afar the progress of the fire and when the smoke just got big dimensions rushed to leave.
