    Web Posted: 15:23 GMT+2

    Athens 29 November (MPA)

    New shocking evidence came to light 9 years after Christina Onasis' death. According to the Athens daily "TA NEA", official findings issued by the judicial and police authorities, that held the investigation on the conditions of her death in Argentina, reject the possibility of a suicide and do not rule out the likelihood of a criminal act.

    The newspaper maintains that both findings, the first one issued in 1989 and the other one 19 months later, are unable to explain what caused the inflammation of the lungs that killed Christina Onasis. Also, it mentions that a basic omission was the transportation of her body to a Buenos Aires clinic, while doctors were confirming Christina's death at her villa.
