From a Disreputable Alley to a Mysterious Murder

It was a dark night in July 1908. While the friar was celebrating the mass in Maddalena Church something caught his attention. There was a strange bundle lying near the latrine in the yard. The friar asked the sacristan to light the scene with a torch and what they found was terrible. The strange bundle was a stabbed corpse! The two men were shocked. The victim was a young altar boy who was still wearing the cassock! The inquiries were solved quickly, since the murder was another 15 years old boy that probably stabbed the other guy for a few coins of the collection box. Ironically this sad story of poverty took place just a few steps from the banks of Strada Nuova Palaces.
