Lain Armstrong post mortem
A post mortem revealed that Mr. Armstrong, of Belton near Great Yarmouth, Norfolk, who worked as an account manager for a software company had died from a brain hemorrhage, according to local media reports.
Police Statement & Investigation
According to reports, Skarmeas told police he was full of regrets and had only hit Armstrong twice in the raid. The police held him on suspicion of causing fatal injuries to Mr. Armstrong. His wife, who was not named, but is understood to have a South African passport, was also arrested and interrogated by agents. The case has now been referred to prosecutors on the nearby island of Kefalonia. Local reports suggested that Skarmeas was worried that his separated wife planned to leave Ithaca with his eight-year-old daughter. His wife told police that Mr. Armstrong was an old friend who had supported her during her long-term marriage problems and had flown to Greece to see her.
She reportedly told police that she began a relationship with him while he was staying for six days on Ithaca.
He then went to Kefalonia, but he later returned to Ithaca to see her after she called him to say that her estranged husband was following her and attacking her.
She said that her husband grabbed Mr. Armstrong by the shirt after entering his hotel room.
Skarmeas’ wife reportedly told police: ‘He lifted him out of bed and shouted: ‘What are you doing with my wife?’
‘He started punching him in the face. My friend fell down with the first blow and did not retaliate. He was trying to calm him down. I was yelling at my estranged husband to stop.
‘He found me, slapped me and spat on me. He told me he would take my daughter and not divorce me. Then, he left’.
She then claimed that she repeatedly urged Mr. Armstrong to go to the local hospital, but he declined.
The wife said: ‘He told me his nose was broken, but he knew what he had to do, having happened to him twice before.’
She added that she returned to the hotel room during the evening and found him lying on his bed and smelling of alcohol, although he was breathing.
But when he returned in the morning, he shook him and ‘saw that he was cold’, and realized that he was dead. Armstrong’s family issued a statement through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs today, saying: ‘Iain Armstrong had gone to Greece to support a good friend who was in trouble. This was an act of kindness. ‘This kindness resulted in a physical attack that caused his death and our total devastation. We ask that you respect our privacy and allow us to cry in our own time. A spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said: “We are supporting the family of a British man after his death in Ithaca and we are in contact with the Greek authorities.”
