A homeless illegal migrant from Tunisia has turned himself in after the brutal murder of priest Roberto Malgesini, who was killed in a public square in the city of Como.
The alleged murder took place on Tuesday morning in the Piazza San Rocco. The body of the 51-year-old priest was found at 7 am, and he is believed to have died from being stabbed in the neck.
However, the Tunisian immediately turned himself in to police and admitted that he had killed Father Malgesini.
At the time of his confession, the Tunisian was covered in the blood of the priest and boasted during his interrogation that Fr Malgesini had died “like a dog”. He also claimed the priest was conspiring to send him back to Tunisia.
The illegal migrant is said to have a history of theft and robbery, newspaper Il Giornale reports.
