A 46-year-old construction contractor from Rhodes, who had been missing since the evening of Sunday, August 28, was found dead in the early hours of Monday.

The body of the unfortunate man was found on a deserted road between Psinthos and Afantos and a forensic examination has been ordered, as it became clear that he was the victim of a criminal act.

In this context, the perpetrators accused of the man's murder were identified by the Security Sub-Directorate of Rhodes: they are two citizens aged 20 and 53, against whom a case was filed for first degree murder.

In particular, regarding the history of the case, on the evening of August 30, 2022, the disappearance of a 46-year-old foreigner was reported to the Archangelos Police Department since the evening of August 28, 2022.

During the investigation of the case, on August 31, 2022, the vehicle of the missing person was located in a rural area.

Subsequently, in the context of a thorough collection - utilization of evidence and pre-trial data, the involvement of the two nationals was found, who in the early hours of this morning were brought to the Security Sub-Directorate of Rhodes and, being examined during the preliminary investigation process, described in detail their act, indicating the place of the homicide, as well as the place where the 46-year-old's body had been taken and hidden.

In more detail, on the evening of August 28, 2022, the 46-year-old went to a meeting with the perpetrators who, due to financial disputes between them, quarreled and fatally wounded him.

Then, in order to cover up their act, they moved the 46-year-old's vehicle to a rural area and his body to a second location where they casually hid it.

According to what has become known, the perpetrators are father and son. The first – a hotelier from Kallithea – allegedly owed money to the hapless contractor (and father of three) as part of an agreement they had made.
