(updates previous)Turin, January 30 - Police said
Wednesday that they have detained a man suspected of shooting
Turin city councillor Alberto Musy six times last March and that
he may not have acted alone.
Police said that Francesco Furchi, 50, who stood in 2011
council elections in the same coalition that supported Musy's
unsuccessful bid to become mayor of Turin was their prime
suspect.
Originally from the town of Ricadi in Calabria, Furchi is
the president of the cultural association Magna Grecia Millenium
supporting tourism and products from the southern regions of
Calabria, Sicily, Basilicata and Puglia.
Investigators said that they suspect Musy's failure to do
favors for Furchi was the driving force behind his action.
"Principally there are three motives - Furchi sought but
was refused professorship at the Palermo university, he was not
nominated for a Turin city council position after supporting
Musy's campaign and Musy did not procure investors for Furchi's
business activities," head investigator Giancarlo Caselli said.
"Furchi blames Musy for all of these failures," he said.
Furchi faces charges of premeditated murder.
Musy, a member of the centrist UDC party and a father of
four, has been in a coma since the attack.
The labour lawyer was shot by a person waiting in the
courtyard of the building where the councillor lives in central
Turin after he had taken his children to school.
Closed-circuit video footage showed the suspect near to the
scene dressed in dark clothes and wearing a motorcycle helmet.
Before falling into a coma, Musy said the attacker was a
man of around 40.
