    The murder that has obsessed Italy
    ---
    On 26 November 2010, Yara Gambirasio, 13, went missing. Three months later
    her body was discovered in scrubland nearby. So began one of the most complex
    murder investigations in Italian history, which will reach its climax later this year


    Lengthy. Great read.

    That was "incredible x4." And a dyed in the wool Zanni the nanny, to boot!

    Congratulations to Ruggeri & her team. One dogged investigation, no stone left unturned. Impressive determination in the face of rancor - left egg on the face of her detractors.

    An overnight bump for this long one -- rare to find quantity and quality in tandem on line like this these days.

    It is rare. Tobias Jones is a very good journalist. What an investigation! Thank you for posting the article.

    Bumping again, for, like, people with a bit of time on hand and no objection to reading a lengthy and very interesting true crime thing. You, perhaps.

    That was a great article. I vaguely remember my Italian teacher talking about it a few years ago but I had forgotten about it.

    Massimo Bossetti ended up being found guilty and was jailed for life.

    A fairly decent documentary of this case was made and currently is available for streaming on BBC (UK)

    Murder in Italy
    Storyville


    On Friday, 26th November 2010, in the close-knit town of Bergamo, Letizia Ruggeri received a telephone call. It was Maura Gambirasio, a mother whose 13-year-old daughter Yara hadn't come home from the gym. Letizia, who spent years investigating mafia murders in Sicily, thought of her own daughter and promised she would find Yara.

    The path to find the killer by way of genetic testing was so interesting, I attempted to trace it out.

    Sorry about the pic being sideways. It is upright on my computer and I don't know how to fix it.
