According to local reports, the man dressed and washed his mother’s corpse in an attempt to hide her real cause of death. Authorities believe that he also raped her as he was sucking her.

He has been charged with manslaughter and rape, as ‘recent findings of sexual intercourse were also identified’ by the medical examiner, officials said.

The suspect reportedly admitted to his murder to the police following his arrest.

According to news website he allegedly said that he had committed this terrible crime because his mother had set fire to his food.

This alleged murder was discovered when Grevena’s owner of a funeral house in Grevena asked the 59 year-old for permission to perform the funeral for his mother.

According to him, he discovered her body in her bed and asked that the funeral director immediately take care of the arrangements. The director was suspicious and informed the authorities. 

According to reports, the man also killed his grandmother 1993 in the village.

According to police, a detective linked the deaths by referring back to a case where the son of deceased 83 year-old also had killed his grandmother 32 years ago.

Local reports say that the man in question was psychopath and was admitted to hospital for many years. However, he was released from rehabilitation and returned to work as a teacher at a school. 

The funeral director’s suspicions and the police officer’s recollection of the previous case led to an autopsy being carried in Thessaloniki on the mother’s body, which found evidence of foul play.

Officers were sent to his home in the tiny mountain village of just 130 residents on Wednesday. But they couldn’t find him. After a lengthy search, officers finally found him after an extended search.

He’s currently being held in detention. The local media reported that he would be subject to further psychological assessment.
