The 25-year-old's prints were immediately sent to the competent laboratory of EL.AS. In order to be compared with "orphan" DNA findings from the 9 terrorist attacks of the last seven months, but also with others found in previous hideouts of the organization.

According to the latest information, the EL.AS. officers estimate that it may be the action of members of the new generation of the "Nuclei of Fire Conspiracy" or bankrollers of the "revolutionary fund" of domestic neoterrorism.
