In the dock of the Western Macedonia Joint Court of Appeals in Kozani, the parents of Kostis Polyzou, 23, from Siatista, were convicted and sentenced to life in prison for their joint murder.
On Thursday, December 5, the patriarch’s landlord in Magoula initially filed a lawsuit, referring mainly to the distance between her residence and the Athens-Lamia Highway.
The bank employee in Nea Moudania then talked about a loan that the victim and his father had taken to buy a house.
A former fiancée of Kosti’s lifelong friend, Spyros Kalamboukas, was also called to court, who expressed her belief that the defendants are the perpetrators of this murder.
The trial was adjourned for Wednesday, December 11, and Angeliki Nikolouli, the victim’s friend Spyros Kalamboukas, and the hunter who discovered Kostis Polyzos’ corpse digged and devoured by wild animals on his estate are expected to testify.
The investigative journalist’s research unfolded the twisted thread of this case and brought to light the modern “Medea” that shocked the public opinion.
Kostis Polyzos, 23, was lost on the night of Friday 18 February 2011 from his home in Siatista Kozani. Eight months after his disappearance on September 26, 2011, his body was found in his father’s estate, at Pasha Gefiri, on the border of the Kozani-Grevena counties by a hunter in the area.
