DNA confirms identity of Romanian woman Monika buried under concrete

A DNA examination has confirmed that the body found buried under concrete belonged to missing 42-year-old Romanian woman Monika Gius. The body was found last week in Kyparissia, south Peloponnese, when the home owner noticed  cement of different color in the house yard.

The house owners visited the house as they wanted to refurbish it. When they saw the different concrete they became curious and started to dig in the yard.

Genetic samples taken from the body matched with those from the woman’s son, private broadcaster Skai reported.

Monika  was living in Ano Poli Kyparissia for several years and disappeared some time in last February.

Neighbors said she had been abused by her alcoholic partner, also a Romanian national, who fled to his home country short after the woman’s disappearance. The man was rented the home where the body was found.

Greek authorities have issued an international arrest warrant against the man.

After the autopsy concluded, Monika’s relatives buried her in Kyparissia.

The case is the 10th femicide that took place in Greece in 2021.
