Greek Police Recover Tablet Buried with 9-Year-Old Poisoning Victim

PATRAS – The Hellenic Police on Saturday completed the process of recovering an electronic tablet used by nine-year-old poisoning victim Georgina, in a sensational case of suspected infanticide, which had been buried with her at the cemetery of Agios Athanasios in Sychena, Patras.

Police intend to investigate the tablet in the hopes of finding additional evidence regarding the death of the child, whose mother is currently being held on charges of murder. She was arrested after a toxicology screening showed that Georgina had died after ingesting a massive dose of the drug ketamine at a time when only the mother was present. The tablet will be taken to the forensics laboratory at the Attica Security police headquarters.

The process for its recovery began shortly before 7:00 on Saturday, in the presence of a public prosecutor and the head of the Patras coroners’s service Aggeliki Tsiola, as well as police officers and members of the victim’s family. Earlier, a priest performed a blessing at her grave.

The order to open up the grave and recover the tablet buried with the child was given by the 18th examining magistrate handling the case.
