"I shot our daughter so that you could die of grief"

The tragedy in the small town of Argos is turning into a true modern Medea. Last week, in broad daylight a father shot his daughter there and then attempted to commit suicide. Investigators searched the house where the man lived and discovered a letter to his ex-wife in his bed. In it, he blamed her for their breakup and threatened her: "I will kill our daughter so that I can make you die of grief. You destroyed me, you took my restaurants. I will not kill you; I will kill your child so that you can live with the pain."

According to police sources, the woman has maintained a stable relationship with a common family friend for a long time. In the letter, he accused precisely her for the collapse of their marriage, and said that he would kill their daughter only for revenge and in order to protect her from becoming the same as her mother.

The 17-year-old girl is in the "KAT" hospital in Athens in serious but stable condition. She was shot with two bullets in the head, but it seems that they did not affect any vital organs. The 47-year-old father is in another hospital in Athens – and is clinically dead.
