Suspect in Athens cemetery murder in custody


The Greek police (ELAS) on Tuesday said it has positively identified a man suspected of killing a 32-year-old woman on October 18 at Athens’s Second Cemetery in the western suburb of Rizoupoli.

The suspect is reportedly a Greek who already has a record for drug-related offenses and is currently being questioned over the murder of Theodora (Dora) Zeberi, who was found by the cemetery’s priest after being stabbed multiple times.

Investigators claim to have irrefutable evidence putting the suspect at the scene of the crime, as well as CCTV footage allegedly showing him trying to sell the victim’s cell phone a few hours after the killing at a shop near Omonia Square in downtown Athens.

They believe robbery to have been his motive when he attacked the 32-year-old tax worker.
