More evidence in suicide case

The prosecutor investigating the alleged suicide of Costas Tsalikidis will ask experts to examine six notebooks which were kept by the software engineer and were recently handed in by Vodafone, the Tsalikidis family lawyer said yesterday. Themis Sofos said the family had not known about the existence of the notebooks even though Tsalikidis’s brother had visited the mobile telephony company on June 28 last year – some three months after Costas’s death – to collect all of the engineer’s belongings. The notebooks contain a range of technical details recorded by Tsalikidis. One of the pages, however, has a note saying, «If this happens (or fails)… suicide.» At this stage, authorities are not confident that this mention of suicide can be linked to the engineer’s death and are examining the possibility that he may have been using it in a metaphorical sense about a possible project failure.
