14 years after the murder of Anna Todde, there is finally a suspect in the crime .
The body of the 49-year-old originally from Goni and resident in the Santa Rita district of Turin was found in flames on the banks of the Drava River in Völkermarkt, Austria. It was the evening of October 4, 2008. The autopsy exams had established that she was first strangled and then hit with four shots in the head and chest .
But not only that: before his death he had had sexual intercourse , probably with his tormentor who had sprinkled the body with petrol and burned it so as to make it impossible to identify.
The investigators carried out all the investigations and thanks to the cast of the teeth they were able to trace the name of the victim . The peculiarity noted was that of a prosthesis that is used almost exclusively by a Turin studio.
Now the turning point has come through a DNA , it is that of Brahim A., a 48-year-old Moroccan who is in prison in Vallette to serve a 4-year sentence for drug issues. The man declares himself innocent and rejects all accusations. However, there are some important elements at his expense: when the 49-year-old Sardinian was killed, she had an affair with him and they had left in the car together for a holiday. That car received a parking penalty in January 2009 in Udine and was then resold in Turin. Furthermore, the man's DNA would be the one found on the remains of Todde's corpse.
The 48-year-old's defense reserved any comment pending examination of all documentation.
