A murder in Greece

Following a fight between a couple that was living apart, the wife fell into a coma and was taken to AHEPA hospital, while her husband was later murdered in the hospital corridor.

All started at a bar in Ampelokipi, Thessaloniki, on Wednesday evening when the couple began quarreling. The 26-year-old husband might have hit his wife, who lost her balance and hit seriously on the head when she fell.

Later, her parents and ex-husband visited her at AHEPA Hospital and at about 15:30, the husband was found dead in the hospital corridor.

All happened so quickly that at first the doctors spoke of a sudden death. However, the coroner proved that the man had suffered multiple blows with a pointed object on the left side of his head.

Emile Durkheim, a French sociologist, said that crime is normal. In other words, every society has crime. Greece is no exception, unfortunately. Dad

Yes, well the murders here are always interesting, at least the body didn't have to go far to get to the morgue.
