Federico Aldrovandi (18 years) died in the hands of Italian police?
In the night of September 24 in Ferrara, Italy a boy of 18 years, Federico Aldrovandi, died in the hands of the police. They left him for five hours on the asphalt, initially hiding the truth to the mother who searched for her son. The police version talked of a call from residents in the zone, alarmed by the strange attitude of the boy, who when arrested collapsed.
If this is true is not known. The police deny responsibility for his death, sustaining that he hurt himself, and died for an overdose of drugs. The toxicology exams reveal that overdose cannot have been the reason for the death of Federico Aldrovandi. The details as described by the medical referees are still not 'officialised' four months after this incident, they talk about numerous signs of violence over his whole body, a wound ruptured on his head, violet colored stripes on his pulses of the handcuffs, and his scrotum smashed.
The mother told that she got Federico’s clothes literally soaked with blood. The news remains unknown for months. Only in these days the silence is broken by a blog of the family who asks for light over the event.
