Student’s death in Ioannina ruled a suicide

A coroner ruled on Monday that the cause of death of missing student Vangelis Giakoumakis was suicide. The coronary report pointed to a single wound on the student’s right wrist carried out with a knife.

Authorities believe that the 20-year-old, who was enrolled at the Dairy School in Ioannina, northern Greece, committed suicide on February 6 the day he was reported missing.

During the ensuing investigation it emerged that he may have been a victim of bullying carried out by fellow students.

The young man’s remains were discovered on Sunday near Pamvotida Lake by a couple walking in the area of Katsika.
