BOLOGNA. The Prosecutor’s Office for minors of Bologna concluded the investigation and asked for immediate judgment for the 16-year-old accused of killing her peer Chiara Gualzetti, who was beaten and stabbed at the foot of the abbey of Monteveglio, not far from home, on 27 June. Prosecutor Simone Purgato challenges the young man for the murder aggravated by premeditation, futile reasons and the victim’s minor age. During the investigations, a psychiatric consultation was arranged according to which the suspect, who had confessed to the crime saying he had heard “voices” and “demons”, was capable of understanding and wanting.
The investigations had reconstructed that the day before the murder the 16-year-old made an appointment with Chiara to see each other: he went to pick her up at home and they went together to the park of the Abbey, not far from the student’s house. Their last walk was documented in a video. In the green area the boy hit her and fatally wounded her with a knife, which she had in her backpack, and attacked her with kicks and punches. The girl’s parents, having no news of her and finding the cell phone turned off, immediately began looking for her, mobilizing the whole country.
Chiara’s body was found by a volunteer the following day and the carabinieri soon closed the circle around the boy. The immediate judgment requested by the prosecutor led by the prosecutor Silvia Marzocchi is a special procedure characterized by the absence of the preliminary hearing that can be asked when there is evidence of evidence and the person under investigation has been questioned.
