(ANSA) – CATANIA, NOV 10 – The remains of a man, apparently 50 years old, about one meter and seventy tall and with congenital malformations of the nose and mouth, was found by soldiers of the Alpine Rescue guard of finance of Nicolosi in a cave on Etna.
According to the findings carried out by the Scientific Investigations Section of the Provincial Carabinieri Command of Catania, the death dates back to a period between the end of the seventies and the nineties. It seems the man voluntarily entered the cave, which is difficult to access, and that he died of non-violent causes: he probably did not manage to get out.
Finding the body was the nose of the search and rescue dog Halma, a German shepherd of the Guardia di Finanza, who barked and showed obvious signs of interest at the entrance to the cave. Investigations are underway for its identification.
For this reason, in addition to examining the reports of disappearance, the investigators disseminated the details of the clothes he was wearing: long dark trousers, a light striped shirt, a light wool sweater, a black tie, a dark green nylon cape, a wool hat with pompom and Pivetta boots n. 41. Also found some old lire coins and an Omega watch with strap and a small comb with case.
Any reports of missing persons that match the description can be made to the telephone number 0955192125 of the provincial command of the Guardia di Finanza of Catania.
