Massimo Melis’s was a real execution: the man was killed with a gunshot to the head that exploded from a short distance. After having accompanied the friend with whom he had gone out he was about to leave and was sitting in the cockpit of his car when someone – on the night between October 31 and November 1 – approached with a loaded gun and pulled the trigger, hitting him. at the temple.
How was Massimo Melis killed, the 52-year-old with a clean record, an employee of the Green Cross of Turin, found dead yesterday in his Fiat Punto in a parking lot in Via Gottardo, the northern outskirts of the Piedmontese capital? The mystery has not yet been resolved, but some things have been clarified and will help – in the coming hours and days – to better outline what happened.
First: Melis was killed with a gunshot to the head from a short distance. After having accompanied the friend with whom he had gone out, the man was about to leave and was sitting in the cockpit of his car when someone – on the night between October 31 and November 1 – approached with a loaded pistol and pressed the trigger, hitting him in the left temple. Melis died instantly and his body was found only 15 hours after the crime, yesterday afternoon. No one had come near that Punto parked in a drugstore area, believing it was much better to mind your own business.
Second: Massimo Melis’s life was that of a “good” man, without any shadow. The 52-year-old worked as a rescuer for the Green Cross in Turin, driving ambulance and carrying stretchers. His colleagues, some of whom would have been heard by the investigators, described him as an extremely calm person, always available. Shortly before the crime she had spent the evening with a friend, who was heard yesterday by the men of the Flying Squad: she is a bartender, she lived a few hundred meters from the crime scene and according to the investigators it is possible that the woman is become the object of attention from another man, a customer of the place. This could be the key to the solution of the mystery: to kill Massimo Melis it could have been a possessive man, convinced that that woman was “his” and that the 52-year-old was an intruder to be eliminated. It is on this hypothesis that the investigators work.
