ROSA ‘- It is too early to say if the death of Michele Merlo, the young singer who tragically passed away on 6 June at the Maggiore hospital due to a cerebral ischemia due to fulminant leukemia, could have been avoided. Those who wait to find out the truth are the parents, who in several locations have tried to bring to light any errors or underestimations on the treatment for the 28 year old son. After five months of investigations, the Bologna Public Prosecutor’s Office found no responsibility for the Emilian doctors (the first access was to the Vergato emergency room). In Bologna, according to the experts, nothing could be done to save him. The investigation, however, moves to Veneto, where instead perhaps something could have been noticed earlier.

Michele Merlo and treatments in Veneto

In May the boy had introduced himself to Rosà (Vicenza), his country of origin, ea Cittadella (Padua). In both cases, no one understood that the patient’s condition was already serious. For this reason, the Bolognese magistrates have now forwarded the documents of the investigation, a dossier for manslaughter, against unknown persons, to the Vicenza Public Prosecutor’s Office. That will have to restart the investigation. In particular, Michele went to the emergency room of Cittadella with pain and a hematoma in his leg. Nobody visited him after three hours, so he left the emergency room pissed off. Then he was examined by the family’s associate doctor’s office, where he had the hematoma massaged with an ointment. According to the report, if Michele Merlo had undergone blood tests by June 27, the signs of acute hemopathy would have emerged. And maybe things would have turned out differently.

Farewell to Michele Merlo

A case that had shaken everyone that of Michele, even in the entertainment world, where the artist had just presented himself by participating in the two most viewed talents on TV, XFactor e Friends by Maria De Filippi. “Hi Michele. Last night I sang loud for you. This morning my heart broke into a thousand pieces. ” had written Emma Marrone the day after his show at the Verona Arena, dedicating the show to the young colleague he had met at ‘Amicì in 2017. The artist’s agony, which lasted four days, from the moment he entered the Maggiore in Bologna, had held with bated breath many fans, waiting for some comforting news to arrive from the boy’s parents.

The lawyer: “The hematoma could not have been due to a blow”

The lawyer of the Merlo family, Marco Dal Ben, expressed his opinion on this last legal development. «Michele – explains the lawyer – presented a diffuse hematoma on the leg that was certainly not attributable to a blow, given the size. Now we will wait to understand what to do. Parents are not looking for culprits. They just want the truth about what happened. ” The one that had struck Michele Merlo, acute promyelocytic leukemia, is a subtype of leukemia, it represents the most aggressive form; it is also called fulminant, due to the speed with which it can be fatal. If not diagnosed in time it can cause the death of a patient in a few days, due to haemorrhages, but if diagnosed in time, according to experts, it can be curable ».
