  • Another beheading

    ATHENS, GREECE — A 31-year-old man killed his girlfriend on the Greek island of Santorini on Sunday, beheaded her, then fled in a patrol car, a local official said.

    During the ensuing chase, the suspect was shot five times by police and ran over two women doctors who were riding a motorcycle before he was caught, the official said.

    The suspect, Athanassios Arvanitis, a cook at a local restaurant, is undergoing surgery at an island hospital, said Chrysanthos Roussos, head of the Santorini district on the island.

    Neighbors said that, following a heated argument, Arvanitis beheaded his girlfriend's dog with a butcher knife, then killed and beheaded the woman.

    The victim, 25-year-old Adamantia Karkali, worked as a teacher at a local village, Angelos Roussos, the mayor of Thira, the island's main town, was quoted as saying by TV station Antenna. Angelos Roussos and Chrysanthos Roussos are not related.

    Initially, Arvanitis roamed the village of Vourvoulos exhibiting Karkali's head, neighbors said. Townspeople said they locked themselves in their homes and called the police.

    When a policeman tried to handcuff him, the suspect knifed the officer and flung the woman's head into a patrol car, Roussos said. The policeman was only slightly injured, police said.

    Arvanitis then made off in a second patrol car and ran over the motorcycle before he was caught, Roussos said. One of the two doctors suffered multiple fractures, Roussos said. The other was uninjured.

    As the police fired at Arvanitis to stop him, a stray bullet hit a woman bystander, injuring her slightly, police said.

    That poor dog!
    She was dead before he did it to her too.
    I'm tired of the copycats that do the shock value stuff.

    what a sick POS.

      That's sickening.

      I say they fix him up some concrete shoes and send him for a swim.
      When talking to a fool, be sure he isn't doing the same.

        I wonder why they didn't just shoot him if he wouldn't drop the knife...I'm not too keen on approaching and attempting to cuff a dude with a knife..especially when he's holding a severed head!

          Some additional details here

          Gruesome crime shocks Greek isle
          By Malcolm Brabant
          BBC News, Athens

          Police on the Greek island of Santorini have shot and injured a knifeman who decapitated his girlfriend and walked around the streets with her head.

          Terrified residents of the popular tourist island barricaded themselves into their homes and called the police.

          The suspect, 35, was shot during a dramatic car chase in which he crashed into a motorbike and badly injured the rider and pillion passenger.

          The crime is one of the most gruesome in Greece in recent memory.

          Ricochet

          The man reportedly beheaded his girlfriend, a teacher in her mid-to-late 20s, in the village of Vourvoulos, close to the island's capital, Thira, and then paraded with the head.

          Speaking on Greek television, the local sub-prefect said the man attacked officers who tried to arrest him and slashed one policeman in the face.

          The man threw the head into a patrol car and then stole a police jeep and tried to get away.

          But after 400m the suspect slammed into a motorbike carrying two female doctors.

          They were thrown into the air and badly hurt.

          The police then opened fire and hit the alleged knifeman five times.

          According to one eyewitness, one police bullet ricocheted off the road and hit a woman in the leg and jaw.

          The suspect is said to have a history of jealousy and domestic violence.

          The authorities say they are organising a military aircraft to fly the man and some of those he injured to undergo emergency surgery in Athens.

            No way in hell would I walk up to someone yielding a knife and carrying a severed head and try to cuff him. They should have had their guns drawn from the beginning.

              The question I have is this:

              If you are in an argument, and the person you are arguing with starts cutting your dog's head off, why in the hell would you wait in the area for him to attack you???

              I would call the 1st beheading a "clue" for me to leave or arm myself....
              Never give in--never, never, never, never, in nothing great or small, large or petty, never give in except to convictions of honour and good sense. Never yield to force; never yield to the apparently overwhelming might of the enemy.

                That's strange, I was expecting a Muslim, someone mentioned it is usually Muslims that go on "beheading sprees."

                  I'm sure this can all happen within 15 seconds.

                    Agreed. Sounds like poor tactics, or the officer was caught off guard. Though Im not sure how you could be caught off guard when hes running around with a human head.
