Killer sought.

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

Po­lice on Crete stepped up their search over the week­end for the per­pe­tra­tor be­hind a vi­cious as­sault on a 71year-old man in the area of Moires, near the port of Irak­lio, on Thurs­day. The 71-year-old was found dead in his home on Thurs­day by his daugh­ter. He had been stabbed sev­eral times in the throat, chest and stom­ach, ac­cord­ing to po­lice. The mo­tive be­hind the at­tack re­mained un­clear but po­lice in­di­cated that it was un­likely a rob­bery as cash was found in the dead man’s trouser pock­ets and there were no signs that the house had been searched. The fact that there was no sign of a break-in sug­gests that the vic­tim knew his at­tacker, or at­tack­ers.
