Police investigate friends and family of dead seamstress


Authorities probing the death of a 48-year-old Chinese seamstress whose body was found on Thursday in her apartment in the Athens neighborhood of Aghios Panteleimonas are investigating her circle of friends and relatives.

Police said there were no signs of forced entry at the apartment, suggesting the woman knew her attacker. The woman’s body was wrapped in a bed sheet, her hands were tied and her feet bound, and there was a bloody plastic bag wrapped around her head.

An autopsy is expected to shed more light on the circumstances of the woman’s death.
