The police found Rosen Hristov’s body in a house at 3, Nikis Street in the Athens suburb of Haidari late on Monday night, said the press office of the General Directorate of Greek Police in a statement to GRReporter.

He was in an advanced stage of decomposition. According to the coroner, the man was killed four days ago. Wounds from sharp objects were found on the head and leg of the victim during the autopsy.

The Attica police have determined the case as a murder and have started a preliminary investigation against an unknown perpetrator. Police sources stated for GRReporter, that they are working on the version of a murder for personal reasons. They are searching for the woman with whom Rosen Hristov was living but they do not think she was the perpetrator of the murder. They are assuming that she had another friend who committed the crime. Police officers discovered the house in complete disorder. Therefore, they think the woman and her boyfriend robbed the victim before leaving the house.

Rosen Hristov was a long-standing chairman of the "Bulgarian community - Athens." His relatives and friends began searching for him immediately after his disappearance. On Saturday, his daughter Daniela Hristova published on the community's Facebook page the message, "Hello, I am the daughter of Rosen Hristov. We haven't been able to contact him for two days now and we are worried. If anyone has seen him or has any information about him, please let me know. We would be very grateful."

All who would like to honour the memory of Rosen Hristov will be able to do so on Sunday, 4 December, at 10.00 am outside the office of the Community, 79-81, Sokratous Street in downtown Athens.
