The whole shocking apology of the 30-year-old murderer of Garyfallia

Her Annas Kandili

An insignificant reason led to the 30-year-old’s quarrel with Garyfallia that had as a tragic end the death of the girl in Folegandros. In his apology to the investigator, he said that it all started when they lost their way to the place where they were going to eat, while he claimed that they often fought because the victim did not respect him and was walking him. He claimed that he did not hit her, although the medical examiner Elias Bogiokas found blows on the face of the girl that show her beating, while he referred to psychiatric problems which he has been facing, as he said, since 2015.

Starting from the fateful day, the accused claimed that they quarreled and “the reason was that he did not watch how we would go to the place we were going to eat. We were going another way and then we went back again.

-Did your car leave or did you throw it there?

– He left me. We were in the center of the road and I had to make a turn. We fight and the car goes off the road. It crashed into stones.

-What form did the quarrel take?

– There was an intense argument. I do not remember specifically. I told her that this with the map has been done many times. She said that it does not matter if we go the other way if it bothers you so much suicide.

-Was there no insults, insults or physical violence?


-Have you argued again before?

– There were various dialogues, other times more intense. He told me that we have come on vacation together and we are not having a good time. I had suggested to book tickets, to go back since we were not having a good time, but Garyfallia insisted on staying… “. That day, he said, leaving the beach where they were swimming, they wanted to go for dinner. “But we got lost and had to return to the dirt road… About 100-200 meters after the beach of Lygaria, back to Ano Meria at a steep point the incident took place.

Q: Was everything okay by then?

– We did not have good communication, we did not have a good time. We sat for a bath for about 1 hour and decided together to go somewhere to eat.

Q: Did Garyfallia have the map?

– Basically we had the gps of her cell phone.

Defendant said that the victim did not respect him with the investigator asking him for clarification on what he meant. “There are some facts but I do not know if there is a reason to mention it. He made fun of me by pretending to go get cigarettes and go elsewhere and then laugh. The main thing was that this was strongly present on the island. You were leading me in the wrong directions, we ended up on a dirt road and then he was making fun of me. It was a repetitive behavior and it was so intense that it spoiled my good mood at the beginning. He did it 5-6 months ago. Similar behavior but not continuously, sometimes. He tried to expose me either when we were alone or with friends. I had said several times to stop being for this reason but she insisted we continue. We had found solutions for some issues, but in other places it did the same “.

The accused did not know the answer either about the location of the victim’s mobile phone or his own and returning to the moment of the crime, claimed that the 26-year-old “got out of the car because she was scared. He shouted because we were off the road and he was scared, while it was not something intentional. I think once he called for help… At that moment I blurred, locked my mind. I realized that he was shouting to create the impression that I was guilty of something and to expose me once again. We had a fight in front of the car. I did not start the car. I do not remember how many meters the car is from the edge of the cliff “.

Q: What exactly happened?

– I only remember one intensity.

Q: Did it hit you?


Q: Did you hit her?


Q: Did you touch her?


Q: What do you remember?

– I pushed her. I do not remember how many times I pushed her.

Q: Where did you push her?

– I think towards the cliff. It had no beach.

Q: Did he fall off the cliff?

-I pushed her and she fell and what I remember was that she was in the water. I did not see her hitting the rocks.

Q: Did you see her fall?

– I did not see how he ended up in the water. I went down and it was in the water. I do not remember if he had blood. Maybe he had blood on his face. I do not remember any more part of the face. I do not remember what he was wearing. When I saw her I was out of tune. I went into the water, took her out and tried to give her artificial respiration. I do not know the technique. I pulled her with my hands. It was deep there. I do not know how the dress and the sandals were found next to the place where Garyfallia was pulled out. Not even the earrings and the necklace. There was no fight. When I did artificial respiration she did not react, at first she took something out of her mouth like foam and then she did not move. He was not breathing. I took a pulse but did not notice a pulse. I did not hear her voice and I do not remember if she had her eyes open. “I only remember that her lips were bruised.”

Trying to explain why he did not call for help, he claimed he had lost them and did not know what he was doing. “I lost them. I left the opposite side of the spot swimming. I do not remember how long after I left. I do not remember how long I swam. I swam for a long time and went out on the rocks. As far as I remember I threw my bag into the sea. That night I slept on the hill. I do not know why I went back to the car and I do not remember, although why I left the alarms open.

The psychological problems

Before the investigator, he claimed that he was facing psychiatric problems that started in 2014-2015 “with intense brain function, intense anxiety, dizziness, phobias and hallucinations that they are watching me. For this reason, at the urging of my parents, I visited a private psychiatrist in Corinth. Then in 2015 I was examined in a psychiatric clinic where I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder and I was given medication. Then in 2020 I experienced a psychiatric episode in my workplace and specifically panic attacks, intense anxiety and hallucinations. So examinations by a private psychiatrist accompanied by my parents, in which I did sessions for four months and he gave me the drug (…) which I stopped arbitrarily after 5-6 months. The last time I visited the psychiatrist of Corinth was in June 2021 and I did three sessions with him, on the last July 7, 2021, who did not give me medication. I visited the last psychiatrist because I thought again that they were watching me, that I could not communicate, I had misunderstandings and problems with Garyfallia. I had tried many times to end the relationship with her but then she called me to meet again. I was continuing it and trying to understand the reasons why this was happening in the human context and in the context of mutual respect. “

Concluding, he said: “For what happened I was definitely not myself. “I’m really sorry for what happened and I wish things had turned out differently.”
