It must have been a beautiful day, that of the defense of the degree thesis and of the party. And for this he had asked his parents to come to Bologna to attend his graduation in Business Economics, an expected day, passed from joy to drama. The young man – a 29-year-old from Abruzzo – could not stand the sense of guilt for not having completed all the exams and threw himself – yesterday at 4 pm – from the bridge of via Stalingrado in Bologna. The lifeless body was found in via Zago, near the rails. Rescue was useless for the young university student.
Genoa, suicidal university student for the lies about the exams: “Excuse me if I disappointed you”
Yesterday the parents reached Bologna and were supposed to meet their son, but the young man did not show up for the appointment. The house, where he lived alone, was empty and did not respond to calls from relatives. Least of all it was in Forlì, where the seat of the faculty is located. THE parents immediately became suspicious, not even friends knew anything about the thesis they said they had to support. The complaint to the carabinieri was immediate.
The young man wandered around the city yesterday morning, confused and oppressed by the lies he had told his family for years. At noon he seems to have sent a message to his ex-girlfriend, a text that revealed discomfort and that alarmed the parents even more, but no one knew where he was. At 4 pm the last message from a friend: «I’m on the bridge in via Stalingrado». The friend calls the police and tries to catch up with him. And the carabinieri who in the meantime had tracked down the cell phone also arrive on the spot. Everything useless. The 29-year-old had already launched, a flight into the void that left him no way out. On his study book all his anguish: it seems there was only one exam taken or a little more. This is what the first investigations of the police say.
