Mirror Online Incident 2 weeks ago

A British tourist has been beaten to death on a Greek island by the jealous husband of his married lover, it has been claimed.

The 40-year-old victim's body was found in his hotel room on the island of Ithaca - where he is believed to have died from severe head injuries.

He is said to have been kicked and punched in the head and body at the hotel in Vathy, InKefalonia reports.

The alleged attacker, who is believed to be a local in his 50s, is said to have fled the scene in a taxi to a nearby village.

Local media claim the victim arrived on the island on Thursday and began an affair with a British woman in her 40s.

Police have launched a murder investigation
 

According to local media the woman was said to have been present during the attack, but she did not realise the victim has sustained fatal injuries so left him thinking he was just sleeping.

Police have said the couple are being held by the attorney general on Kefalonia, a nearby island.

In a statement to local media, the Ithaca Police Department said: "The investigation was resolved immediately, following a systematic and thorough investigation by the Argostoli Security Department in collaboration with the Ithaca Police Department, after a fatal injury to a 40-year-old in Ithaca.

The 40-year-old foreigner was found dead in a hotel room in Ithaca and informed the Ithaca Police Department and the corresponding Health Centre."

An Foreign Office spokesman added: "We are supporting the family of a British man following his death in Ithaca and are in contact with the Greek authorities."
