Elena Del Pozzo killed by her mother: what are the dark points of the infanticide

Catania, June 14, 2022 – A long interrogation followed by the confession of the crime. Martina Patti, 23, killed her 5-year-old daughter Elena.

Did Martina do it all by herself? She says yes, but it is quite complicated to think that the mother-Medea put her body in some black bags, if she loaded them …
