The Greek public is shocked by the confessions of a criminal who killed his girlfriend in cold blood while on vacation on the island.
According to law enforcement agencies, the 30-year-old man confessed to the murder of 26-year-old Garifalia, the girl with whom he came to rest on Folegandros. He was charged with premeditated murder.
It is known that the boy and the girl were countrymen, originally from the neighboring villages of Corinth, and maintained a relationship. Garifalia studied to be a pharmacist and proved herself to be very calm and decent among her family and friends.
In the last 24 hours, grief-stricken parents of Garifallia made a speech on SKY, emphasizing, among other things, that their child should be the last one to lose his life in this way (due to his partner’s insane jealousy).
Recall that the girl’s body was found last Friday, and her friend, after several hours of searching, the police found on Saturday. The only thing that the young man, who seemed to be in a deranged state, said: “It was a ‘bad moment’ (‘κακιά στιγμ)’).
Death of Garifallia on Folegandros
On 18/07, the causes of death of a young girl who died in a monstrous manner became known. According to the conclusion of the forensic medical examination, death occurred as a result of drowning. According to forensic scientist Elias Bogiok, a young girl from Velo (Corinth) died after drowning in sea water, receiving serious injuries.
According to police sources, the body bore injuries from falling off a cliff (as if she had rolled head over heels over rocks before being in the sea).
According to the same information, she was alive when she fell into the sea. She either lost consciousness after falling into the water, or received injuries due to which she could not stay on the water, as a result of which she drowned.
Course of events
According to police sources, the 30-year-old had a constant fight with his girlfriend on that fateful day, Friday 16/7. According to the arrested person, “when the car pulled off the road and stopped on a 30-meter rocky slope, the girl got out of it. The satellite followed her and pushed her in the back. She hit rocks and fell into the sea. He also dived into the water to help , but when he found her unconscious, he left the scene. ” A criminal case has been opened against the man.
According to law enforcement agencies, when the police found the young man, he was in a bad psychological state, refused to surrender to the authorities, and when he was nevertheless detained, his speech was slurred, it was not clear what he was saying.
As “Russian Athens” wrote earlier, a short the couple’s vacation in Folegandros turned into a tragedy after the girl was pulled out of the water in the Ligaria area, and her boyfriend confessed to the murder of a friend. Relatives and friends of the unfortunate Garifalia cannot believe what happened, that their little girl died at the hands of a “not man”, a coward and a scoundrel.
The killer’s testimony
The offender claims that he dived after his companion to help her, but as soon as he realized that she was unconscious, he left the scene. That is, the killer threw her off a cliff, leaving her to drown, without providing assistance and without informing anyone (did not call the rescue services and did not call an ambulance).
The man makes provocative statements, claiming that his girlfriend has recently humiliated and insulted him, and therefore they constantly quarreled. The last skirmish that occurred between them led to a tragedy.
The couple who were vacationing on the island, according to the main newsletter OPEN, realized that they had done it in vain, their relationship had become obsolete. Then the girl’s killer accused her of all grave sins, started a fight and pushed her off the cliff.
According to the SKAI channel, over the past three days, the couple, instead of enjoying a vacation among the beauties of nature, all the time “sorted out the relationship”, led fierce quarrels arising for minor reasons. Shortly before a man killed Garifallia by pushing her off a cliff, the two allegedly disagreed about their destination and whether they would go mountaineering or swimming.
In his testimony, according to law enforcement agencies, the killer stated that during a quarrel he accidentally hit the parking brake, as a result of which the car drove off the road and reached the edge of a cliff. Then, according to police, the frightened Garifalia got out of the car and they started fighting. The man pushed her, as a result of which the girl hit the sharp stones and ended up in the sea.
According to the main SKAI newsletter, the guy returned to the car, took his backpack, went down to the sea from another place and approached the girl. According to the accused, he saw his companion unconscious and left (recall, the forensic medical examination showed that she was alive when she fell off a cliff, and the cause of death was drowning). “It was a bad time,” says the killer.
The authorities are investigating the possibility that the guy deliberately drowned the girl, seeing that she was unconscious, pushing her off the land into the sea. According to the police, the killer wore swimming trunks in different parts of the island and after 28 hours he found himself in another part of the same beach, in a small cave, where he was later found.
