“Justice has been done. Killing a man like that, in cold blood, poor fellow, what did that have to do with it? “. Tamer Salem thus comments to the Adnkronos on the life sentence of Natale Hjorth and Finnegan Lee Elder, the two Americans accused of killing the deputy police sergeant Mario Cerciello with 11 stab wounds on the night between 25 and 26 July 2019. , who works as an illegal parking attendant in Piazza Mastai, in Trastevere, was the first to be heard by the carabinieri. “When the patrol arrived here, the carabinieri were so out of breath and shaken, they asked me if I had seen the two boys – he says – Other than if I had seen them, they were stuck and drunk, they screamed. I was scared that they could damage parked cars. They appeared that evening for the first time, they had never been in the area, they settled on a bench in front of the school, a bench that they have now removed. One spoke Italian, only one American, they were together with an Italian who has now never been seen (Sergio Brugiatelli, ed), the same one from whom the backpack was then stolen. I pointed to the carabinieri at the school’s camera “.” It was he who brought them here, “Tamer says again. The two boys wanted drugs, a drug that Brugiatelli promised to remedy them through an acquaintance of his. The story is known. from two members of the police, one of the two Americans takes advantage of it to steal Brugiatelli’s backpack. “I remember well their flight, the comings and goings of people, then the arrival of the carabinieri. I thought how strange, all this mess about a stolen purse, and that he must have been in it? “, Continues the valet. It is still in Piazza Mastai that Brugiatelli receives the call from the American for the ‘return horse’, from there the phone call to 112 and the intervention of the carabinieri patrol in piazza Farnese and a second in civilian clothes composed of Mario Cerciello Rega and Andrea Varriale with the task of going with Brugiatelli to meet the two thieves. .
