A homicide was discovered this morning, Wednesday 23 November 2022, in an apartment on the second floor of the condominium in viale Indipendenza 27 at the corner of via Giovanni XXIII in Canelli, in the Asti area. Piero Pesce, a 61-year-old former employee of Riccadonna and now an employee of the Nizza Monferrato winery, killed his 28-year-old son Valerio (pictured below).
The investigations are conducted by the carabinieri of the city company and in the investigative unit of the provincial command of Asti, who stopped the murderer and took him to the barracks.
The boy appears to be resident in Alba (Cuneo), where he ran a tobacconist’s but it seems he returned to live with his father a month ago. The mother (and father’s wife) had died seven years ago of an incurable disease. This morning the neighbors heard a voice calling for help. Some of them went out onto the balcony but then silence fell.
