New discoveries have been made in connection with the shocking case that was widely discussed about a year ago. It concerned a 49-year-old woman suffering from cancer who was believed to have been buried alive in Ano Perea, Thessaloniki region.

On Friday seven forensic doctors completed another autopsy of the body, five of whom had signed the medical report and two of whom had observed the operation. They categorically state that no signs indicate apparent death and that the woman did not die of suffocation after being buried. According to forensic doctor Mateos Tsoungas who was involved in the autopsy, the death of the woman occurred on 25 September 2014, early in the morning, which coincides with the information in the death certificate.

Forensic Medicine and Toxicology Professor at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki Samuel Dougou Tzaou believes that a heart attack caused the woman's death, which she had when she was already in the grave.

In his medical report published by the newspaper Espresso, he states, ''The woman's death probably occurred at 8:00 pm as a result of a heart attack that she had while she was buried alive.''

The forensic doctor explains that the 49-year-old woman was considered dead because of the effects of the medicines that were given to her, ''The case regards a rare condition called apparent death, which had led to an erroneous diagnosis, because of the superficial search of the first signs of death and its hasty establishment under laboratory conditions.''
