Mother of 5 stabbed to death in family home in western Athens

A 54-year-old woman was found stabbed to death in the family apartment in Aigaleo suburb of western Athens. The woman had been stabbed multiple times in the neck, chest and abdomen and was laying in a blood pool when police arrived alarmed by neighbors..

Main suspect for the murder is considered the 20-year-old son, the second youngest of five children.

Neighbors said they saw him fleeing the apartment from a window, when another son, the youngest one, who was witnessing the murder started screaming for help. The youngest child, who has mobility problems, seems to have been an eyewitness to the murder.

The family was living on a disability allowance and was economically supported by the eldest son, a 25-year-old. The father had died several years ago after an accident at work.

Neighbors told media and police that the family was living in dire economic situation and that quarrel between the victim and the youngest son was frequent.

The suspected murderer was once removed from the home by social services and had spent some time in a facility of the Welfare. He was still on the run early Wednesday evening.

A preliminary autopsy confirmed death by stabbing.
