(ANSA) – AOSTA, 01 JUL – Jessica Lesto, the 32-year-old woman from Aosta found in a trench along the banks of the Dora Baltea on the evening of 31 May last, died of “acute cocaine intoxication” a homeless camp. The data emerged from the toxicological examination carried out on the remains of the young woman on the orders of the prosecutor of Aosta.
After the discovery, which took place following a report to the police, a murder case had been opened.
A hypothesis of crime which, following the outcome of the consultancy entrusted to the coroner Roberto Testi, definitively falls according to the prosecutor of Aosta. Investigators also tend to rule out the possibility of a corpse concealment. The filing of the investigation can be requested only after the final report on the causes of death arrives on the table of the prosecutor Manlio D’Ambrosi. Meanwhile, the magistrate has granted clearance for the funeral.
The date of death dates back to the first half of May, in a period between 15 and 30 days from the discovery of the body, on which no evident signs of violence or trauma were found. The results of the investigation could however be affected by the state of decomposition in which the body was recovered.
Jessica Lesto’s husband, Dia Matabara, a 37-year-old native of Senegal, has been untraceable since at least the middle of last May and could be abroad. (HANDLE).
