‘He deserved life imprisonment’
“No justice has been done, I have no words for it, I am really disappointedElisa’s sister, Paola Pomarelli, noted.

That late summer day, the two were having lunch in restaurant ”Il Lupo”, near Piacenza. At 2:45 p.m., the worker was caught by city surveillance cameras at a gas station: he was alone in the car.
