Faced with a macabre finding came the police officers who “comb” the ravine that ended with the tractor of Thanasis Polychroniadis in the mountain of Vergi.
The men of Serres Authorities have identified after a long-term investigation at a distance of at least two kilometers from the location of the tractor, human bones, a skull and clothes that will be transferred to the Forensic Service of Thessaloniki.
In addition to necropsy and anthropological analysis, a sample of DNA will be taken to identify and see if the findings actually belong to the body of the unfortunate Thanasis Polychroniadis 86 years old.
Despite the fact that this spot was investigated by police officers and rangers, there was no good visibility due to the dense foliage of the trees and the snow that had covered a large area. After the fall of the leaves and rain that melted the snow, the tractor of the farmer who was lost at the end of October was revealed.
The alarm in the village marked the afternoon on Tuesday, December 18th, after information from shepherds who have been stationed in the area. From the top they saw a vehicle covered with mud and assumed that it was the farmer’s tractor that had not been found until then.
Aggeliki Nikoloulis, who dealt with the case on Friday, 14, urged the residents of the area to see even metallic pieces of color, not to think it is scrap and to alert the authorities.
The place where the tractor was found was kept all night and the investigations started again with the first light of day and will continue tomorrow.
The search for police officers was particularly difficult, as the point is extremely inaccessible and dangerous. In the place yesterday and today, a Criminal Investigation team has carried out a careful investigation into the finds, and police officers along with EMAK fire fighters searched extensively with the assistance of four dogs, arriving today Wednesday December 19 and the bones identified.
It is to be noted that rapid developments are expected since all possibilities for the authorities are open, including the possibility of criminal action, and virtually every element will now illuminate the aspects of what happened in the afternoon of the disappearance of the unfortunate elderly.
