Monza, December 7 - Carabinieri police in Desio,
near Monza, on Thursday arrested Mattia Del Zotto, 27, the
grandson-great nephew of three elderly people who recently died
of thallium poisoning.
Five other people are in hospital receiving treatment for
thallium poisoning.
"We proceeded with the arrest in order to avert other
victims," police said.
The victims were the arrested man's grandparents, Battista
Del Zotto, 94, and Maria Gioia Pittana 88; and his aunt,
Patrizia Del Zotto, 62.
The suspect is accused of homicide and attempted homicide.
Del Zotto was arrested after police found five packages of
thallium sulfate, totaling 60 grams, in his home in Nova
Milanese.
Police also found receipts for the purchase of the substance,
showing it was bought in Padua, as well as conversations on Del
Zotto's cell phone in which he makes reference to the purchase.
"I did it to punish impure people and I don't want to
cooperate," Del Zotto told police at the time of his arrest.
In a press conference, Monza public prosecutor Luisa Zanetti
defined Del Zotto as "an introverted person".
