Rhodes Killer-Rapist Convicted of Raping Disabled Woman

ATHENS — One of the two men convicted for the rape and murder of 21-year-old student Eleni Topaloudi on Rhodes in 2018 and sentenced to life was convicted of the rape of a 19-year-old disabled woman and given a 15-year sentence.

A court on Kos accepted a prosecutor’s proposal to impose a prison term on the 19-year-old Albanian national after the court heard that he raped a Rhodes woman a few days after raping and killingTopaloudi, said Kathimerini.

His companion who had been convicted in the murder was implicated in the second attack but not convicted.

In a crime prosecutor Aristotelia Doga, said was a “slaughter,” they showed no remorse for the murder of Topaloudi who was beaten, put into the trunk of a car half-naked, taken to a seaside spot and tossed into the water alive.

They sought to cover up the crime,  Doga said, calling for the court to give exemplary punishments. Her body was found in the sea by the Coast Guard. Her last words were, “My dad will come after you both.” He didn't.
