Athens- A thirty-three-year-old lady killed her nine-year-old daughter in Greece. The mother used ketamine to kill her daughter and underwent an investigation due to the sudden demise of her two daughters within three years.
The mother is, identified as Roula Pispirigou, was captured on Wednesday after her daughter’s muscle tissue showed contamination by an anesthetic drug, which had not issued by the doctors.
The nine-year-old girl died after being hospitalized for eight months, and the girl was identified as Georgina.
Tissue samples made from two other children of Pispirigou are now being re-examined as part of a review into their deaths, three-year-old Malena from liver failure in 2019 and six-month-old Iris in 2021 from a suspected heart defect.
Riot police and wearing handcuffs and a protective vest, Pispirigou appeared before a crowd of onlookers and journalists at court in Athens on Thursday. She has denied any wrongdoing but is expected to respond to the allegations next week formally.
Protesters also gathered outside the mother’s home in the port city of Patras, 125 miles (200 km) west of Athens, where police again intervened to maintain order.
Pispirigou’s mother said she did not believe her daughter was capable of killing three children. She described a close mother-daughter relationship and noted that Pispirigou was deeply disturbed by Georgina’s illness and death.
