            Unfortunately yes. A very pleasant couple who had just moved here. Moved into their house a week ago and were opening up a gift shop.
            Police are still investigating

                Babs, I believe it was in Almyrida, and their son found them brutally murdered. What a tragedy, and shocking to anyone – let alone those with interests in Apokoronas.

                I hope that the son is getting some support from somebody out there – it’s bad enough losing your parents, but even worse to lose them in such a horrendous way. I really can’t imagine what he must be feeling like just now – my thoughts go out to him and his family. :(

                I hope the police find the murderer(s) without delay.

                                I believe the Son has been arrested?

                                    It would seem so.

                                    A very strange business and no less upsetting for all concerned.

                                    I think the best thing is to wait until all the facts come out.

                                    My thoughts are still with the family.

                                        To Eleni

                                        Just read your comments on the website about knowing the Johnsons. I work for ITV Westcountry in Cornwall where the couple came from and we are planning to come to Crete to do more on this awful story.

                                        Can you please tell me more about the Johnsons and the feelings of other expats in the area?

                                        Thank you
