Antonis Daglis (Greek: Αντώνης Δαγλής, born 1974) is a Greek serial killer who was convicted of the murders of three women and attempted murder of six others in Athens on January 23, 1997.[1] Referred to as the "Athens Ripper",[2] he was sentenced to thirteen terms of life imprisonment, plus 25 years.[3]

Daglis, a truck driver[3] preyed upon Athens prostitutes between 1992 and 1995. He had been a repeat juvenile offender since the age of 14.[4 ] He had a prior record for a 1988 charge of seducing a minor, and in 1989 he was arrested for attacking a group of men at the Zappeion in Athens with a knife.[4 ]

Daglis was initially suspected for two murders after he was arrested for the rape and abduction of an English woman named Ann Hamson.[5] After his arrest, Daglis confessed to the rape, strangulation and dismemberment of two women and the attempted murder of a further six, and having robbed all eight women.[3] He later admitted to dismembering the bodies of two women, Eleni Panagiotopoulou, 29, and Athina Lazarou, 26 with a hacksaw and disposing of them around Athens.[4 ] Daglis subsequently confessed to the previously unsolved murder of a prostitute whose dismembered body was found in a dumpster in 1992.[6][7]

During his trial, Daglis told the court, "I hated all prostitutes and continue to hate them. I went to meet them for sex but suddenly other pictures came into my head. I heard voices which ordered me to kill. Once I thought about strangling my fiancée, but I restrained myself."[4 ]
