Horror: the elderly, locked in the apartment, died alone from heatstroke and starvation

Law enforcement agencies in Greece are investigating the tragic death of two elderly people.

The elderly couple were found dead in their Kipseli apartment at noon on Thursday 4 August. A forensic report, as well as a police investigation, revealed how their horrific demise occurred.

It is noted that the tenants of the apartment building contacted the police because of the strong stench emanating from the apartment of the elderly. The police, with the help of a locksmith, entered the apartment, where they found the lifeless body of a 91-year-old man in the hallway between the bedroom and living room, and a 90-year-old woman in the bathroom.

During the investigation, it was found that behind the “gloomy scene” was a human tragedy. Looks like the man died about 7-8 days ago from heatstroke. The air conditioner in the apartment on Georgiou Kedrinou Street did not work, and, probably, in those days when the thermometer showed a record high, the old man passed away from heat stroke. He was found naked in the corridor of the apartment, and the bruises that were allegedly on his body, he received, presumably, in a fall.

As for the death of a woman, she came about 24 hours ago, which means that for several days she lived with her dead husband, not being able to do anything for him or herself. The couple was inseparable for many years. When the man passed away, his wife was unable to take care of herself as she suffered from serious health problems. As a result, she was unable to eat on her own, and died of starvation and dehydration.
