A relationship of mutual disrespect when the victim showed degrading behavior towards him, described the pardon to Naxos investigator, 30-year-old accused of the crime against Garyfallia Psarrakou, last Friday in Folegandros.
According to Greek media, before the investigator, the accused for premeditated murder, who is already arrested was presented as the victim of an insulting behavior by his partner, with whom, as he stated, they had a relationship for about a year.
“She was playing with mua ”- he said, emphasizing that he had suggested that they return from Folegandros, but the victim did not want.
Asked by the investigator about the cause of the quarrel they had that day, the accused said the tension started because Garyfallia was not looking at the map how they were going to get to the place where they were going to eat and so they confused the road and ended up somewhere else .
The investigator: Did the car leave you or did you throw it there?
The defendant: He left me, we were in the center of the road and I had to make a turn, we were fighting and the car went off the road, it hit rocks.
The investigator: What form did the quarrel take?
The defendant: There was a strong argument. I do not remember specifically. I told her to look at the map for tv follow the right path where to go, she told me the road does not matter.
The investigator: Were there insults, insults or physical violence?
The defendant: not
Answering a question from the court official, the accused said that before the quarrel in question, there had been other debates with each other, and that the young woman told him that ‘we have come on holiday together and we are not having a good time. I had suggested booking tickets to return as we were not having a good time but Garyfallia insisted on staying “.
The 30-year-old also said the victim was the one who suggested they go on holiday together and that they decided to camp for free for financial reasons.
According to the accused, shortly before the situation escalated between them, they had gone for a swim on a beach near the place where the young woman was found strangled and beaten. From there they decided to go for lunch but got lost and had to turn back from Agios Georgios to Lygaria. About 100-200 meters behind the beach of Lygaria, back in Ano Meria, the event took place on a steep point.
Investigatorof: Was everything okay by then?
The defendant: We did not have good communication, we did not have a good time. We sat on the beach for about 1 hour and decided together to go somewhere to eat.
The investigator: Did Garyfallia have the map?
Defendanti: We actually had the GPS of her cell phone.
In the accused’s report that the victim did not respect him, the court officer reportedly sought to explain to him exactly what he meant.
“There are some facts, but I do not know if there is any reason to mention them. She made fun of me pretending she went to get cigarettes and went somewhere else, and then laughed. The main thing was that it was not this, forcefully on the island. She was orienting me in the wrong directions, we ended up on a dirt road and then she was making fun of me. It was a repetitive behavior and was so intense that it spoiled my good mood at first. She did it 5-6 months ago. Similar behavior, but not continuous, sometimes. She was trying to expose me, either when we were alone or with friends. I had told her several times to stop, but she insisted that we continue. ”- testified the 30-year-old.
Describing to investigators what happened in the rocky area where the crime took place, defendant said Garyfallia got out of the car when it overturned because he was scared.
“She got out of the car because she was scared. She yelled because we were out of the way and she was scared while it was not something intentional. I think once joi called for help… At that moment I was foggy, stuck. I realized she was screaming to create the impression that I was guilty of something and to expose me once again. We got into a fight in front of the car. I did not start the car. I do not remember how many meters is the car from the edge of the cliff I remember only one intensity He continued.
The investigator: What do you remember?
Defendant: I pushed him. I do not remember how many times I pushed it.
Investigator: Where did you push it?
Defendant: I think towards the rock. There was no beach.
Investigatori: Has she fallen off the cliff?
The defendant: I pushed her and she fell and what I remember is that she was in the water. I did not see him hitting the rocks.
The investigator: Did you see him fall?
Defendant: I did not see how it ended up in the water. I went down and it was in the water. I do not remember if there was blood. Maybe there was blood on his face. I do not remember any part of the face. I do not remember what he wore. When I saw it as if I was in tune. I went into the water, took it out and tried to give it artificial respiration. I do not know the technique. I pulled it with my hands.
The accused told the court official that he then felt lost and that he left swimming. “I do not remember how long I swam. I swam for a long time and climbed the rocks. As far as I remember, I threw my bag into the sea. That night I slept on the hill. I do not know why I got back in the car and I do not remember if I left the alarms open ”.
The accused claimed that from 2014-2015 he had faced a mental health problem, with severe deteriorations and was taking medication while doing sessions with specialists. He said that in recent months he had stopped his treatment, while in early July he visited a psychiatrist, who did not give him treatment.
