Apocalyptic was the testimony of the pharmachist partner who also went with his daughter at the house. About nine days later she went at the cottage of the family and saw the violation on the doors of warehouses and something else which was strange … (see below what she said at “Tunnel”)
Technical advisor was appointed
As told to “Tunnel” geneticist Mr. George Fitsialos who was appointed technical advisor of the victims family, the investigation of the show is particularly important. “The new evidence” he said, “give rise to new questions that will be answered by science. I look forward to the first results of the laboratory analysis.”
The criminologist Mr. Panagiotis Papaioannou added that the contribution of “Tunnel” removed the possibility of the two victims killed each other. He said: “The authorities now geared to two new levels. In the reconstruction of the crime scene and to the research of the environment of the victims.”
“I saw Giorgos before the murder …”
Angeliki Nikolouli found an important witness who claims she saw as Giorgos outside of the house, shortly before the murder. Around 5:30 p.m., while she was preparing to go to work, she saw the 27-year old on the street, closing the front door of his aunt’s house. Then he went to his own house to which he entered. There he did not meet with his sister who about one quarter ago, left from the house for her shift at the pharmacy. This testimony, changes the facts we knew so far.
“If Giorgos was coming to me I would have noticed him …”
According to Giorgos aunt Ourania Petrisli, the unfortunate young man had visited her the day before the double murder. As she told to “Tunnel”, if the day of the incident, Giorgos was at her house she would had notice him, even if she was resting. She did not hear any noise and stressed that her nephew used to visit her around 7:00 p.m.
“He did not come to the church the day of the murder”
The spiritual father of the unfortunate young man Demetrios spoke to Angeliki Nikolouli. He described at the journalist the relations he had with his father. He said that Dimitris Afeidis cooperated very well with his son. Despite his intense character, he had not objected for Giorgos when he expressed his desire to become a monk. All he was asking him was to stabilize his health first. The priest had met two days before the massacre the two men in a marriage. On the day of the murder Giorgos did not go to the church.
What friends of Giorgos said to “Tunnel”
The unlucky Giorgos Afeidis did not have many friends. Lately he was hanging out with two young men he had met at the church. Their connection was the common spiritual interests and discussions mainly revolved around Christian themes. With one of them Christos, they were going for walks and visit at their leisure monasteries. As he said to Angeliki Nikolouli, the victim wasnt talking about personal matters but appeared as a quiet man who cared so much for his fellow man. The second friend Stelios said at “Tunnel” that Giorgos was in good psychological condition. Last time he saw him on Saturday before the murder.
“What I saw when I went to the cottage …”
The companion of Dimitris Afeidis spoke for the first time since the tragic incident. She described to Angeliki Nikolouli the joy her partner felt with the improved health of his son. She had met with the victim on Sunday night and spoke to him on the phone for the last time on Tuesday morning a few hours before the murder. She was so afraid when she received the phone call by the daughter of Dimitris Afeidis to go and look for him. She assumed that he would be in his country as he used to and something bad happened could to him because he was alone. She could not imagine the horror that she was going to face. She told to the reporter the nightmarish moments she lived by the time she arrived at the house of Ion Dragoumis street with the young pharmacist. She waited in the car until she heard the daughter and sister of the victims shouting on the balcony. Immediately she came up and tried to enter by the front door but she did not succeed. She went then from the side of the kitchen and when she entered she saw her partner lying dead. She could not bear to go to the other rooms…
Nine days after the murder, the victim’s companion went to the cottage of the family along with the superintendent of the house. She was impressed by the fact that the two doors of the cottage stores seemed to be locked, but in fact they were unlocked. The keys to these doors were inside the house. The small radio which Dimitris Afeidis used to leave open turned on outside of the house to show that someone is at home, was not found.
“The killer is free and that scares me…”
According to the daughter and sister of the victims there was not someone from the family or the friendly environment with which they had conflicts. Traces of burglary were not found at the house and it is impossible for her to understand what could be the motive of the perpetrator who wiped out her family.
As she said to Angeliki Nikolouli she is frighten by the fact that the killer still free. With her life have gotten surprisingly different direction than she dreamed, all she is asking is to learn the truth.
