Albanian Man Admits Killing Owner of Santorini Hotel Where He Worked

SANTORINI — A 20-year-old Albanian man has reportedly admitted killing the owner of a Santorini hotel where he worked and setting a fire to cover the crime, where the victim's body was found.

The suspect, victim and hotel weren't named but Kathimerini said a police investigation after the fire led to them to believe it wasn't an accident, questioning the suspect who told them there was an altercation because the hotel owner didn't pay him 150-250 euros he was supposedly owed for work.

The suspect allegedly claimed that the owner of the hotel attacked him with an iron rod but it wasn't said if he also pleaded self-defense. Like all Greek islands, Santorini – the most popular – has taken a big hit with hotel closings and loss of business during the COVID-19 pandemic.
