The dense and angry messages of the couple that they exchanged after the loss of the baby and before the opposition of Georgina, “tie” with the new testimonies presented by the show on Friday night.
The “Tunnel” revealed what happened on the night of Tuesday, April 6, almost 24 hours before the “mother” took Georgina to the hospital. That day she was locked in a hotel and “blackmailed” her husband, who was in Athens, to go back, otherwise she would have committed suicide.
The situation between them seemed to have derailed and their 9-year-old daughter was an observer. Late that night, Manos gave her the final blow and time began to count down for Georgina.
He appeared agitated by the facts to a lawyer in order to file for divorce. When his wife found out, “she wanted revenge on him.”
Her friends who experienced what was happening that day of the extreme events, spoke on the show about what they saw and heard.
The accused’s uncle was the one who insisted on being taken to a psychiatric clinic. Her mother remembered other extremes she had created in the past and “had suffered”.
Unfortunately, no one took the initiative to help her medically. Manos said he would send his mother to remove the shocked Georgina from what was happening from the “sick” environment she was in. They did not remove her and the sequel is shocking…
“If her relatives had acted then, we would have caught Georgina…”
The couple’s close family friend spoke to Angeliki Nikolouli.
“Georgina was upset because she listened to her relatives and understood that something was happening with Roula. I was looking for her and I was telling the child excuses. We took her to another friend’s house so she wouldn’t hear the tensions. On Wednesday night, Roula’s sister took her from the friendly house and shortly after he took her to Karamandaneio. The child did not spend a single night at the mother’s house “, he stated characteristically, while he added:
“We believed that Roula had been influenced by Iris, which is why she wanted to commit suicide. He did whole tricks. We were looking for her in the cemetery and we were afraid she had not hurt herself and she was lying in the hotel. At one point I remember her sister telling me that the messages she sent her were being delivered, but she did not respond. When Roula got on her nerves, she became a different person. I remember a conversation of her uncle who said when we were all together at her house, to lock her up in a clinic. In other words, the family knew that he had a problem. “If they had mobilized earlier, we would have caught one child, at least Georgina.”
What impressed the witness is the fact that Roula wanted in every way to keep Manos away from his 9-year-old daughter. Shortly before she was admitted to the hospital, she remembers playing happily in the mountains.
“On Wednesday afternoon I was with Georgina and she was sleeping like a bird. When I told her to get her mom to talk, she said no. It was fine. He had a calm. He painted something for me and wrote “I love you very much”. Then what happened happened. Roula told us that that night the little one had a dream, had convulsions and ran to Karamandani. We were shocked. ”
“We were looking for her everywhere to prevent evil…”
Another friend of the couple, who was hosted by the undefeated Georgina in the days near the funeral of her sister, Iris, as well as the day when Roula threatened to end her life, breaks her silence and what she says in ” “Tunnels”, are revealing. They “tie” with the messages of anger exchanged by the couple and they came up and down.
“Roula and Manos had calmed down a bit, but they fought again and then Manos left the house. Georgina had told me: “because mom and dad were fighting, from a lot of crying, the baby burst out and died”, “said the person who was very close to the family.
“On April 6, at noon, her sister sends a message that she was not found on the phones or anywhere. We ate the place, they were looking in the marina if it had exploded, an uncle broke the door of the housewife’s house, maybe she had committed suicide. In order for the little one not to live through this whole situation, her sister asked me if I could take her home to take care of her, something I did. Shortly afterwards, they found Roula in a hotel where she used to work. There he had called Manos and threatened him that he would commit suicide if he did not return. When Roula found out that I had the little one, she made her sister contact me, telling me not to let Manos see her. We secretly put him in the house because Georgina wanted to see him. The next night her parents and sister came to pick her up and take her to Alissos, where Roula was. They went down and at dawn took her to Karamandaneio with convulsions, as he said. “The next day I learned it from ***** and this thing was unthinkable to me, my mind could not fit it”, the witness concluded.
“Her uncle told Roula to go to the clinic…”
The witness also referred to Georgina’s sudden change from talking to her mother on the phone after her suicide attempt, but also to Roula’s uncle urging her to be treated in a clinic.
“The child talked to Roula on the phone while he was staying at my house, but he was in the room, not in front of me. Then he suddenly changed and was not in the mood. Manos came at night, even though Roula had forbidden us to see her and Georgina ran into his arms. She said that the child does not want Manos, but I did not see anything like that. Manos said he could not take her because he did not want to get involved because he was consulting a lawyer. He came, saw her for a few minutes and told her that he would talk to her mother. Any father should not leave his child to anyone, instead of taking him with him in such situations. “Roula learned that the little girl’s father came to my house to see her and reacted strongly”, she stated characteristically.
The family friend also spoke about the 33-year-old’s obsession with Manos, but also about Roula’s uncle urging her to be admitted to a clinic.
“I was there at home and we were all anxious. I told her mother that she might need medical help because she wanted to commit suicide and she told me that she had been through a lot. Her uncle was the one who suggested he put her in a clinic. Her family said that only her husband could convince her of such a thing. That the only thing she cared about was him, how she put him above everyone, even the children. We told Manos to be careful and have his mind on Georgina. We had a suspicion that he did something to the baby, but no one wanted to believe it. “Manos did not want to admit what we told him either, but he said he would have it in mind.”
What struck her was that even though she did not know them for a long time, they trusted their child so easily.
“The night they took it from me and a few hours later it ended up in Karamandaneio… I can not believe it.”
“Manos asked me that night to get a divorce…”
Angeliki Nikolouli located and spoke with Spyros Sorvatziotis, the lawyer to whom Manos Daskalakis had applied to initiate the divorce process immediately after the incident caused by his wife with the threat of suicide.
“On the evening of Tuesday, April 6, around 22:00, Mr. Daskalakis came to my office to start the process of issuing a consensual divorce. As the time was advanced, a second appointment was set two days later, on Thursday, April 8, to discuss the details. He did not come because the child had already been admitted to the hospital. He informed me about it by phone “, Mr. Sorvatziotis stated characteristically, with the journalist asking him:
“Did he tell you if his wife forbade him to have contact with the child inside Karamandaneio?”
“Yes, he informed me and I mediated to Mrs. Pispirigou’s attorney at the time to allow him to see his child in the hospital. Something that happened. “We did not have any other contact for the divorce and this case froze”, he concluded.
He did not confirm what Manos said, that he wanted to take care of Georgina, but the lawyers prevented him.
The angry messages that acquire substance with the revelations of the “Tunnel”…
Many of the defendant’s messages that have seen the light of day and are part of the case file evoke negative emotions, even chills.
Her dialogues with Manos Daskalakis are typical of the coldness and lack of empathy for human loss, let alone that of their own child.
The “Tunnel” does not analyze them through the keyhole. Holds only the dialogues that complement the revealing testimonies on the show.
The angry message that Roula sends to her husband when after Iris’s death their relationship is in the red, is indicative of what bothered her the most.
“You showed us what you are. Both the living and the dead. I do not hold a child because I do not want to see what a father he had. “You can sleep peacefully now, like the baby who ‘left’ and relieved you.”
Manos, a few days before Iris’s death, had left his house on Bizaniou Street, choosing to follow a different path in his life.
On Monday, April 5, 2021, three days before the introduction of Georgina to Karamandaneio, Roula wrote to him on Viber:
“You run when you need it and we were obstacles. “I have told the whole truth to Georgina, but you should also tell her that you made me a ‘reindeer’ and what I did and what you did, now that I have lost two children.”
Manos criticizes her with caustic speech for her choices that removed him and made him leave home. She answers him:
“Iodine in wounds I would suggest for the sting.”
Manos: Look, do not commit suicide with a cable, ridiculous… You will see how much iodine you will put from now on.
It seems that at some point Roula asks him if he was recording their intense dialogues, with her verbal attacks and threats, with Manos answering:
“Yes, my child σα I was recording you when you told me unfortunately.”
Roula: I do not care… I do not hide anything. OK, wait for me to get my lawyer for a while and we will see if you will talk to the child again, bum… That you already recorded me.
Manos: Shame on you.
The messages continue until after midnight, with Roula claiming, among other things, that Manos “hit her” and that he denies it.
The next day, Tuesday, April 6, 2021, the situation between the couple is completely derailed, as it appears from the messages but mainly from the “Tunnel” research. Two 24 hours before the introduction of Georgina in Karamandaneio at 14:09 at noon, Roula Pispirigou sends a message to Manos, implying that she will end her life.
Roula: Take care of my child and remember that I love you very much.
Manos: Where is the child?… If you do any m *** it will become p ***. I call them all and the police now… I take your mother… In the evening I will go to pick up the child from the village and do not dare to bother us again, do what you like μα If you have guilt, commit suicide…! You will not make us all m *** you with what I want… You are not well and you never were. Prove it with this move έχεις You have done it two more times, I’m not afraid of you.
It seems that Tuesday, April 6, was the day that brought the couple up and down and set off the beginning of the end for Georgina.
Roula’s family is looking for her with anxiety. They have learned that she is threatening to end her life.
Sister Roulas: Pick up the phone, the d **** will pick you up έχεις You have done it ******… Instead of thinking c ***** your Christ c ***, that you have lost your children you and you have another one that burns for you you say a ****… Crush and pick it up σα I talked to Manos… and the child will do very well στο Your child plants you may die and you send messages like the old ones Pi*******. “Pick it up now and let go of the threats.”
In the face of legal consequences, Roula returns home the same night, but not to Georgina, who is elsewhere.
The messages of the two brothers and the following days from April 8, the date of Georgina’s admission to Karamandaneio until April 15, who is hospitalized in the ICU in Rio, cause a sensation.
At the time when the unfortunate little girl is fighting for his life, his mother is completely focused on Manos, on whether or not she is wearing his wedding ring. When her sister asks her about Georgina, she replies:
“The pulse dropped to 70 and it was beating, that!”
But her mind remains on her husband and she asks her sister to check if he declares himself married or single on his FACEBOOK profile.
The “dream” of the accused for the baby’s cloth…
Three months after the start of the investigation into the much-praised case of the deaths of the three girls of the family from Patras, the slow pace of its development continues. For 9-year-old Georgina, the case is completely “tied”. This is emphasized by those involved in the investigation of the circumstances of the death of the eldest daughter of the family, which was clearly attributed to homicide and led to the pre-trial detention of the children’s mother, Roula Pispirigou.
According to information, the forensic findings in Georgia, which include histological and toxicological examinations, may pave the way for shedding light on the circumstances of Malena’s death.
There is a common finding, which is the “vacuolar degeneration of liver cells”. In other words, the two sisters have common lesions in their liver, which in the case of Georgina are in “zone one” as the medical examiners say in their “language”. That is, it is to a small degree, since her death was sudden and she did not manage to damage the whole liver. In Malena it was also in the “three zones” that is a universal lesion that may be due to prolonged administration of ketamine or other substances in smaller doses.
The deadly poisoning from a drug that is the cause of Georgina’s death caused hypoxia, a lack of oxygen to her brain cells that led to a small pneumonia and the collapse of her body. The detailed report of the medical examiner Mr. Sotiris Bouzianis was delivered on Friday, May 13 to the competent authorities, without comments on the toxicological and histological analyzes and he is expected to give clarifications about them to the competent Investigator as soon as he is called for testimony.
According to the medical examiners, it will be important to order the child’s hair to be analyzed in order to shed enough light on the previous possible attempts that were made against him.
The samples and organs of the other two brothers that had been preserved, have been delivered to the university laboratories of Thessaloniki and Athens, for toxicological and histological examinations respectively. Absolute secrecy will be maintained as all those involved in the prosecution have already been warned of serious legal consequences in the event of a breach of the secrecy of the investigation.
The message that the accused sent to her then husband about the Iris cloth that she always kept in her sleep also causes a sensation. It is one of the many messages that Roula Pispirigou exchanged with her husband and sister after the death of the baby and they are part of the case file. A few days after the opposition that caused the quadriplegia in Georgia, he sends a message to the mobile phone of Manos Daskalakis.
Roula Pispirigou: Send me Chiola’s phone. I want him to give me the baby cloth.
Manos Daskalakis: What is this glimpse?
Roula Pispirigou: I had a dream that they did something on the cloth and I want to get it.
According to information from “Tunnel”, indeed, Pispirigou called the medical examiner of Patras, Angeliki Tsiola, and asked her for Iris’s cloth back, under the pretext that she was picking up the little girl’s things and for emotional reasons she wanted it. The medical examiner stressed that this can not happen, as the cloth was a proof and will be handed over to the competent authorities, as it was done and is in the Forensic Laboratories of EL.AS. for further analysis.
Due to the state of preservation of the tissues of the organs of the two children in the formula and their mummification, the analyzes that will be done in the toxicological laboratories of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, will be delayed. It needs special processing and thus the solution of the puzzle will be extended a lot, however there will be results as the experts emphasize.
According to information, the National Medicines Agency also answered the relevant question of the 18th Investigator who asked to be provided with information about the possible source of ketamine, legally or illegally and targeting mainly the wider region of Achaia.
In its response, EOF states that the illegal trafficking of substances takes place through “ghost” websites that operate for a minimum of time and that they have competently addressed the Cybercrime Prosecution.
