Police in Italy are now saying that a white teenaged girl found murdered and dismembered was likely chopped apart while still alive by a Nigerian immigrant drug dealer.
Pamela Mastropietro, 18, was found dead and dismembered last year and investigators say that her murderer brutally murdered the girl and continued chopping her to bits while she was still alive, according to Voice of America.
Th girl’s mother says that the victim got caught up with the drug dealer and became estranged from her family.
The girl was a key witness in the prosecution of drug dealer Innocent Oseghale before she disappeared and was then found dead.
According to the sworn testimony given by Marino, the Nigerian drug dealer stabbed the Italian teen immediately after raping her. Marino said, “They had a fight, they pushed, Oseghale stabbed her in the liver and after a first stab Pamela fell to the ground.”
The witness added that following the initial stabbing, Oseghale left the scene of the crime to summon another man to assist him in the disposal of Mastropietro’s body. After he “returned home, convinced him that Pamela was dead and started dismembering from the foot.”
Police say that Oseghale kept stabbing at her and tearing her apart before she succumbed to the first stab wounds.
Mastropietro was not the only white teen to die at the hands of immigrant drug dealers.
Just months after Mastropietro’s body was discovered, another Italian teenaged girl, Desirée Mariotinni, was found in dead from an overdose in Rome. Italian prosecutors subsequently arrested several migrant men in connection with her death, accusing them of raping the 16-year-old girl and intentionally causing her to fatally overdose on drugs.
Italy has suffered a massive crime wave since waves of Nigerians began appearing in the country.
The country has tried to deal with the wave after wave of migrants but its services have been pushed to the breaking point.
