Confirmation of the autopsy: excluding the presence of gun marks on the body
Alexander Parini, killed in the terrorist attack on Friday evening on the Tel Aviv seafront, died following the impact with the car driven by an Arab-Israeli who was later killed by the police. The confirmation comes from the autopsy performed today at the Gemelli polyclinic which ruled out the presence, as already emerged from the tests carried out in Israel, of marks from a firearm on the lawyer’s body. The investigation opened by the Rome prosecutor’s office is proceeding for the crimes of terrorist attacks, homicide and injuries.
The plane carrying the 35-year-old’s body landed yesterday in Ciampino shortly after 3 pm. Together with the young man’s family, the President of the Republic Sergio Mattarella and the mayor of Rome Roberto Gualtieri were also present. A farewell ceremony was held at Tel Aviv’s Ben Gurion airport shortly before departure. This was announced on Twitter by the Israeli embassy in Italy, explaining that the Italian ambassador to Israel Sergio Barbanti and representatives of the Israeli foreign ministry were present at the ceremony.
Meanwhile, Alessandro’s friends who were with him on Friday evening in Tel Aviv were interviewed by the Ros carabinieri. The group had arrived a few hours earlier, stopping at the hotel. Then, having to join other friends, they walked along the seafront. In those moments, they reportedly heard a car arriving at high speed and then gunfire. Friends of the 35-year-old lawyer do not remember the moment of impact but report that they first fled running and then returned and saw the body on the ground with its head in a pool of blood. The friends finally waited for the ambulance to arrive and once in the hospital they learned of Parini’s death.
