Parents, classmates and grief-stricken friends: “He was a sunny boy.” The prosecutor opens a La Sentinella file in a minute
IVREA. It will be the autopsy, ordered by the Prosecutor of Ivrea, to establish the causes of the death of Samuel Paonessa, 17 years. The hypothesis is that of an illness, nothing was found near the body that could lead to something else.
The boy died in his sleep on the night between Monday and Tuesday in the bed of his room in the family home in the hills of the city. The desperate resuscitation attempt carried out by a 118 medical team called by the parents was useless. The boy’s heart had already stopped beating and the body was transported to the mortuary of forensic medicine in Strambino and is still available to the judicial authorities: the prosecutor has opened a file in the hands of the deputy prosecutor Alessandro Gallo.
The news is shocking and has brought a cloud of pain, sadness and grief to the city. From the police station, where his father Angelo served for years before retiring, to the Iis Olivetti where Samuel attended the third grade with profit.
“I am literally shocked. I can’t find the right words to comment on such a heartbreaking mourning for parents, for his friends, classmates, teachers “, says the principal of the Ivrea technical institute. Alessandra Bongianino who adds: “Personally I am overwhelmed by pain.”
The same pain expressed by his classmates who remember him as «a sunny, cheerful boy, ready to joke and to help others. The friend we all want: understanding, carefree but never braggart ».
The news reached the mayor late in the evening, Stefano Sertoli, engaged in a council: “The death of a teenager is a stab at the heart of the entire city.” —
