A Greek man facing eviction killed his landlady and her husband, and then committed suicide, on the Greek island of Corfu on Sunday.
The deaths occurred shortly before noon, in the resort town of Dassia.
Police said the 67-year-old perpetrator used a hunting rifle to kill his victims, a Greek man and his French wife, both in their 60s, before going back to his apartment and turning it on himself.
“This is a double homicide. A shotgun was used, and then, as all evidence shows, the perpetrator committed suicide. All injuries are from contact, almost a very short distance, in terms of victims. The double homicide preceded and the suicide followed,” said Corfu medical examiner Ioannis Aivatidis.
According to the neighbours, the 67-year-old perpetrator had allegedly had several fights lately with both victims.
The reason for his eviction is unknown at this stage.
