Posted in: Police looking for suspect who threw octopus at condo over and over for one hour See in context

In Greece, before cooking it is customary for a freshly-caught octopus to be beaten against a stone 100 times in order to drain out all the water. Octopus flesh is mostly water, and if it is not beaten before it is grilled or fried, the water will simply steam the meat from the inside, making it more rubbery and less savory to chew.

It sounds like the "culprit" in this case was attempting to prepare a dish of octopus Greek-style, but was unsuccessful in finding a suitable stone, and/or gave up the attempt.
