According to the reconstructions of the investigators, Melis regularly worked his shift in the ambulance on Sunday and then spent the afternoon in the bar in Corso Vercelli run by Patrizia’s family and in a nearby betting room, where he played. the usual 2 euro ticket.
Once the venue is closed, called mamma Rosaria, with whom he lived in via Desana to warn her that he would not be back for dinner. Then he accompanied Patrizia to do the shopping and finally took her home, in via Gottardo.
The bartender doesn’t quite remember what time they broke up, probably after 9pm. According to the coroner, based on an initial inspection, the death could go back to 11pm. Investigators do not rule out that Melis may have returned to via Gottardo, but at the moment it does not seem the most probable hypothesis.
Certainly he was murdered by a killer who surprised him as soon as he entered the cockpit, with a freshly lit cigarette. A large caliber bullet, which lodged in the opposite post, while the cartridge case was not found. Detail that would suggest the use of a revolver.
This morning the men of the Mobile took some videos from the video surveillance systems of the shops in the area and in the meantime they began to examine the telephone records of Massimo and Patrizia. The most probable trail seems to lead to a rivalry of love, but the investigators, coordinated by the manager of the Mobile, Luigi Mitola, do not exclude any hypothesis.
