A 74-year-old woman was found murdered in her home in the Athens district of Nea Ionia on Thursday afternoon, police authorities announced.
The 74-year-old, who lived alone on the ground floor of a two-storey residence shared with her daughter and her family, was found dead by her grandchildren.
Her flat showed signs of a break-in and was in a shambles, while the dead woman was lying bound and gagged in her bed, without any sign of external injuries. Police say the probable cause of death was suffocation and the motive was robbery.
An investigation has been launched by Attica Security police.
