Savage Killers Of Italian Teen In Court!
The savage killers of Desirée Mariottini are currently standing the trial for the rape and murder of the defenceless 16 year old girl.
A teenager was raped and killed before being dumped in a building site, a court has heard.
Desirée Mariottini from Cisterna di Latina in the Italian region of Lazio was found dead after being drugged and raped in the construction site in Rome's San Lorenzo district in October 2018, a jury heard.
Four men are accused of selling her drugs which killed the 16-year-old.
A witness said that the teenager visited the abandoned construction site where her body was found to buy drugs.
Narcisa Leon, an Ecuadorian woman who squatted in the abandoned site, told the court that she found the victim lying motionless on a dirty mattress after seeing her with the four defendants earlier in the day.
The four suspects have been named as Yusif Salia, Mamadou Gara, Brian Minteh and Chima Alinno.
They are accused of giving the victim a cocktail of drugs before raping her in turn and leaving her to die.
According to Ms Leon one of the defendants said “better she is dead than us be in prison”.
Other people who were apparently squatting at the site knew that the girl was badly hurt but did nothing after hearing what the suspected drug dealers had said.
Leon claimed that the suspects wanted the teenage girl to die to escape possible jail time.
She also said that one of the suspects, Mamadou Gara, confirmed in a conversation with her that they had given the victim a strong tranquiliser and that he had then had “sex with her”.
Miss Mariottini was buried on October 30, 2019 in Cisterna di Latina in a ceremony attended by hundreds.
The Mayor of Rome, Virginia Raggi, declared a day of mourning.
The case is ongoing.
