The sunbathing killer: Briton who threw children from balcony relaxes in Greece

Posted on 4:06 PM by Sameer Shah

Stretching out in the sun with a cigarette and a cup of iced coffee, killer father John Hogan savours his last moments in Greece before returning to Britain a free man.

Hogan, 35, is pictured at the psychiatric hospital he has called home since killing his six-year-old son Liam by pushing him off a 50ft balcony.

In court, the former floor-tiler from Bristol argued he was suffering from an 'explosion of insanity'.



He was found not guilty and instead ordered to seek psychiatric treatment.

Less than three years after the incident, he has apparently made a full recovery and last month he was cleared to return to Britain.

Residents of the psychiatric facility in Dafni, on the outskirts of Athens, say he spends much of his time in the outdoor cafe, reading, drinking and chatting to other patients.

Hogan killed his son after an argument with his then-wife Natasha in Crete in August 2006.

He pushed Liam and his daughter Mia, two, from a balcony before jumping himself.

Mia survived and has since moved to Australia with her mother, who has remarried.

But Hogan is determined to be reunited with his daughter. In court last month he said: 'I must be there for her - strong and healthy.'
