Over 50 blows, 57 or perhaps 58. Paolo Castellani inflicted many blows with a kitchen knife on the body of his wife Elisabetta Molaro, killed in the night between 14 and 15 June in their home in via delle Acacie, in Codroipo.
This is what emerged from the autopsy, performed by the coroner Lorenzo Desinan, who had already carried out the cadaveric inspection on Elisabetta’s body immediately after the discovery of the crime.
The autopsy examination was also attended by the coroner Nicola Livolsi, the crime scene expert Edi Sanson and the criminologist Linda Pontoni, consultants identified by the lawyer Carlotta Rojatti, who represents the grandmother of the two girls, and mother of Elisabetta, offended party.
“The stab wounds show an action of unprecedented violence, perpetuated with great force, and were concentrated at the base of the neck and the nape of the neck”, explains Edi Sanson, who underlines how it will be necessary to return to the house to verify the version provided by Castellani in his confession. .
For the criminologist Pontoni, the examination of the body provided a different interpretation of the motive for the crime than that provided by her husband. “I don’t feel like endorsing that it was a raptus”, she comments the expert. “Rather, it seems to have been a premeditated and well-orchestrated action.”
