I have heard very little about this disturbing string of murders in Athens and I can’t help but wonder why. If this was a serial killer or gang murdering and dismembering Greek people, would it not be front page news?
Greek police say a woman’s body, wrapped in a plastic bag, has been found near an Athens garbage dump, the sixth discovered there over the past few months.
Authorities said they were waiting for the results of an autopsy Wednesday to determine the cause of death. The body of the woman, believed to be of Asian origin and aged between 25 and 30, was found Tuesday near a recycling plant and landfill northwest of Athens.
The body was the sixth found at the dump since early December. Unlike the others, the woman’s body had not been dismembered.
Police have been investigating a possible connection with migrant-smuggling gangs. Greece is the main gateway for illegal migrants entering the European Union.
