On Friday Brazilian investigators announced that a Rio de Janeiro police officer had confessed to the stabbing death of the Greek Ambassador to Brazil, after he was reported missing this week. The officer committed the killing at the behest of the Ambassador’s wife, the officer’s lover.

Investigators said at a news conference in Rio that the officer, and a cousin acting as a lookout during the stabbing, helped to transport Kyriakos Amiridis’ body. Both are in jail, along with the Ambassador’s wife, as an investigation moves forward.

The 59-year-old ambassador was last seen alive on Monday, and went missing a few days after traveling from Rio to Brasilia, to celebrate the new year.
