Greek Man Arrested in Slaying Family of Four, Two Children

ATHENS – Only a few days after the bodies of two adults and their two children were discovered at their home in the village of Andravida in western Greece, a 60-year-old neighbor said to be their landlord was arrested.

No names were given, including that suspect, as Greek privacy laws generally don’t allow identifying people unless they’re convicted, even in violent cases including murder.

Local media and state broadcaster ERT said the suspect reportedly confessed to the crime with reports he had already dug a pit to bury them and was said to be angry over not paying their rent on time.

There was a large scale operation looking for him and police saw him driving his car and followed it into the cit of Patras where he was taken into custody, the hunt so intense it involved the rapid-response Crime Prevention and Suppression Team (OPKE) eports said.

While the investigation is underway, forensic teams were said to be especially checking his vehicle, although it wasn’t said why. He was return to Pyrgos and due to face a prosecutor soon.


ATHENS - The United States has a strong and historic relationship with Greece because it trusts it to act in a reliable way, US Ambassador George Tsunis said on Tuesday, at the first press briefing held after meeting with Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias earlier in the day.
