Hanioti, 27, is due to sit in the Rethymno Mixed Court on Tuesday for the murder of American biologist Susan Eaton in July 2019. The 27-year-old is charged with murder and premeditated rape. The heinous crime came to light on the evening of July 8, 2019, when the corpse of a 60-year-old biologist was discovered in a Xamoudochori cave in Platanias in Chania. Traces of Susan Iton had been missing since July 2.
According to ERT, lawyers for the family of the 60-year-old woman, Vasso Pantazi and Georgios Tzeriz, say that “ members of the deceased’s family will appear in court to testify to help the court reach a fair decision in memory of the deceased, mother, wife, deceased daughter and sister, expressing their gratitude for the hundreds of messages of support they received during this time, from the Greeks. “
After revealing that there were other women who complained of being assaulted by a driver of a white car (the same one stopped), investigations into the 27-year-old farmer’s past began. Finally, the author, after having confessed to his crime, declared that he was possessed by “a rage” that he could not control.
