Tragedy on the island of Rhodes, where nurse killed an elderly bedridden woman took an unexpected turn on Monday afternoon when the defendant told police she had killed several elderly people she cared for and also tried to kill her baby.
On Monday morning, a 45-year-old woman called the police to report that she had killed a 75-year-old bedridden woman she cared for in the village of Kalitis.
When the police arrived at the scene, the offender was already waiting for them at the entrance and asked to be detained. She reportedly told police that she suffocated the victim with a pillow.

According to the local daily newspaper dimokratiki.gr the woman said that she previously killed an elderly man with diabetes by giving him sugar and honey, another elderly man she killed by giving him large amounts of drugs, and a third victim using a pillow, as she did on Monday morning with the victim in Kalithies .
She also told the stunned police officers that she tried to kill her child when he was an infant by strangling him with a belt, but failed.
Rhodes police officers treated the woman’s confession with particular care, since the 45-year-old woman suffers from a mental illness and was hospitalized in a state psychiatric institution in the past.
