The killer lives in Greece, in Thessaloniki, with a residence permit. In the past, he had problems with the law due to the injury of a person. A criminal case has been initiated against him. Evidence of the presence of the accused at the scene of the crime are also videos from security cameras analyzed by the police.

Takis Theodorikakos says:

“I contacted the prime minister to inform him that the alleged perpetrator of the murder of 19-year-old Alkis in Thessaloniki was arrested some time ago. The Greek police are fulfilling their duties in this case too. I would like to express my heartfelt condolences to the family of Alkis, who passed away so unfairly and prematurely. I know it doesn’t ease the pain of loved ones. At least justice will prevail.”
