Kalogeropoulos murder suspect faces seven-day detention

21-year-old murder suspect's surrender shakes Limassol


In a chilling turn of events, the 21-year-old murder suspect in the Thanasis Kalogeropoulos case appeared before the Limassol District Court, surrounded by a heavy police presence.

The court ordered a seven-day detention to aid ongoing investigations.

The young man, who surrendered accompanied by his lawyer, is suspected to be the second person on the motorcycle during the brutal murder. Three more individuals are in custody, each playing distinct roles in the heinous crime.

As investigators delve into the Central Prison, evidence has been collected from two inmates' cells, hinting at potential connections to the case.

The head of the Limassol CID, Lefteris Kyriakou, expressed optimism in the progress of the investigation but emphasized the need for more testimony.

The chilling chronicle of Kalogeropoulos's murder unfolded on a busy morning along the coastal avenue of Amathus.

The perpetrators, well-acquainted with the victim's routine, ambushed him near a cafe restaurant, blocking his escape and fatally shooting him.

The motive behind this gruesome act is yet to be fully revealed as authorities work towards resolving the case.
