Albania: Three villagers were interrogated for the death of the elderly Greek couple in Northern Epirus


Police sources said that the interrogated were two residents of the Greek minority village and a herdsman.

Police investigations in Albania are in full swing to solve the brutal murder of two elderly Greeks, 84-year-old man Kostas Ilias and his 88-year-old wife, Kleoniki.

According to Himara, the police of Argyrokastro (Αργυρόκαστρο, Albanian: Gjirokastër), who had taken over the case from local authorities, brought three people in to question the double crime in the village of Vodrista (Βόδριστα, Albanian: Bodrishtë) in Dropoli, near the border with Greece.

Police sources said that the interrogated were two residents of the village in Northern Epirus and an itinerant shepherd.

According to the same sources, they were brought in as persons who may have knowledge of the circumstances of the serious crime.

Residents say that there were bruises on the bodies of the deceased, indicating that the couple was the victim of a brutal attack.

The door to the home was not broken into, and the residence was not disturbed, which police say is evidence that suggests the crime was committed by an acquaintance or relative of the couple.
