Greek Envoy’s Murder Solved

Police in Brazil believe that Greece’s ambassador to the country was killed by his wife’s lover under her orders in a house in the Rio area and have detained three suspects, authorities said on Friday.
Ambassador Kyriakos Amiridis went missing on Monday in Nova Iguacu, a city just north of Rio de Janeiro, where the ambassador had been vacationing, ABC News Reported.
On Friday, police investigator Evaristo Pontes Magalhaes said 29-year-old police officer Sergio Gomes Moreira Filho had confessed to killing Amiridis, alleging self-defense.
He said the policeman was having an affair with the ambassador’s 40-year-old wife, Francoise, who has denied any role in the alleged plot.
But the police investigator said in a press conference late Friday that the “evidence clearly puts the ambassador’s wife as a co-author of the crime”.
The first signs the ambassador had been murdered emerged late Thursday, when police found blood spots believed to be his on a sofa inside the house the couple kept in Nova Iguacu, where the wife’s family lives.
Police believe a body found in a burned-out car that Amiridis had rented on December 21 belongs to the ambassador, but forensics experts are still working to confirm that it is him.
