Serial rapist ‘The Beast of Kavos’ falls 100ft off cliff while fleeing police

A serial rapist who was labelled the Beast of Kavos has fallen off a cliff while trying to escape from police

Dimitris Aspiotis, 47, plunged 100ft into a ravine on the Greek holiday island as he tried to evade capture.

He was arrested after the emergency services worked for three hours to rescue him – hauling him out of the ravine on a stretcher.

The rapist ruptured a kidney and suffered fractures to his leg, hip and spine in the fall, which happened last Friday in the town of Lefkimmi.

Aspiotis remains in hospital under police guard and is set to be returned to prison once he recovers, having breached the terms of his parole.

Police were hunting Aspiotis in connection with the rape of a 34-year-old woman two weeks ago, The Sun reports.

He was given a 52-year jail sentence in 2012 for raping up to 100 women, including at least seven British tourists.

But he served just six years of a 52-year sentence because of a law change.

‘The Beast of Kavos is now facing an immediate return to prison to serve the rest of his sentence after he breached his parole conditions.

Brit victim Kayleigh Morgan, 33, who campaigned against his release, said: “I hope he stays in pain for the rest of his life — it’s time for the Greek authorities to throw away the key.”

BA stewardess Kayleigh, from West Drayton, West London, added: “I warned he would strike again and was proved right.

I’m just glad he was caught before yet another woman’s life was ruined.”

Aspiotis was jailed for 52 years in 2012 but walked free in 2018 after convincing parole chiefs he was a changed man and had reformed. But his release sparked outrage, with thousands signing a petition demanding his immediate return to jail.
