A deadly community that instigated suicide. A website that led two young Roman boys to take their own lives. To interrupt the platform of death, the Public Prosecutor’s Office at the Court of Rome, which ordered the blackout of the website that hosted a community with over 17,000 members all over the world, including Italian children, all linked by the common interest of finding concrete and moral support in carrying out suicidal intentions.
Suicide of two boys in Rome
The investigations, entrusted to the Judicial Police Section – State Police Rate and to the Lazio Postal and Communications Police Department, were launched following the deaths of two 19-year-old boys which occurred in February and December last year, inside of two accommodation facilities in the capital, after having ingested a preparation based on sodium nitrite.
Advice on how to commit suicide
The support to commit suicide was offered to the subscribers registered on the platform, through direct dialogue with subjects able to provide useful information on how to find death by ingesting saltpetre, a substance in free sale which, taken in certain quantities, becomes toxic for the human body causing death as it inhibits oxygen transport.
Advice for dying
From the ongoing investigations, the peculiar fact emerged that both young suicides who died in Rome, who at the state do not appear to have known each other, were registered on a website also frequented by a person able to offer lethal advice on pharmacological support and diet to be undertaken a few days before the final act, so as not to put back the ingested toxic substance and allow it to develop all its poisonous effect, accompanying the victims via chat until the moments immediately preceding death, ensuring the victims are safe “success“obtained from other boys who had died in the same way.
Darkened community for kids with suicidal intentions
On the basis of what has emerged so far, the Public Prosecutor’s Office at the Court of Rome has therefore issued the provision which, at least in the Italian territory, prevents anyone from accessing the site. Investigations continue, including of a technical nature, in order to trace the identity of all those who, for various reasons, are involved in the deadly activity.
