Three nabbed for stealing from rich dead tramps

An investigation into the bizarre deaths of two elderly siblings, whose bodies were found in their home in the Athens coastal suburb of Glyfada last July, has taken a new turn after police arrested three suspected members of a fraud ring that used forged documents to try and draw 150,000 euros from the bank accounts of the brothers, who were scrap collectors.

Two men, aged 46 and 66, and a female notary, 47, have been charged with fraud, forgery and setting up a criminal organization. The 42-year-old suspected ringleader is being sought.

The racket also tried to sell a property in the siblings’ name, according to sources who said the brothers had 550,000 euros in savings.
