Chocolate Murder

Come closer and listen to a tragic and sad story with… a chocolate taste.
On May 10th, 1937 a woman was crying in Pammatone’s Hospital. She was hugging the dead body of her twelve years old daughter, who was just dead in excruciating pain. The doctors came quickly to the conclusion that the girl had been poisoned! They called the police, but since the sobbing mother was a prostitute,  the detectives didn’t show any sympathy for her. genova in nero il delitto del cioccolatino

Indeed they started to grill the woman, even though she was still in shock. It turned out immediately that the poison was in a chocolate that a customer of the woman gave her: she was the real target! The policemen laid their trap: they obliged the woman  to “walk” along Via XX Settembre, the street where she used to meet her customers, so that she could identify the murderer. The trick worked and the policeman arrested the  man, whose crime has gone down in history as “The chocolate murder”. Come closer and listen to a tragic and sad story with… a chocolate taste.
