David Fontana, a 43-year-old Italian bank clerk, photography enthusiast and blogger at Food & Travel, bought a freezer on Amazon in mid-January. Also an ax and a hacksaw. A brazier would also appear in his stage history, which he later returned as it was of no use to him. A trail of commercial transactions that took as their goal an operation that lasted three days: freezing the body of 26-year-old porn actress Carole Maltesi, breaking it into 15 pieces, and disposing of it in the middle of the mountain. She told police at 3 a.m. Tuesday, two and a half months after the murder of Maltesi, the mother of a six-year-old son and known in the industry as Charlotte Angie. During that time, and until she got rid of the remains, a week before, the killer pretended to be her by answering text messages from her relatives.

Fontana and Maltesi were neighbors in Rescaldina, a town in the Milanese metropolitan area, but they met at a hotel in Milan in October 2020, during the peak of the pandemic. “I used to work in a bank, but I am fond of photography. I met her via Instagram and took some pictures of her in her underwear. I lived in Milan with my wife, then I decided to leave her because I started having an affair with Carol. We had an open relationship. He Onlyfans. but was selling pornographic movies and pictures [un canal de suscripción usado a menudo por el sector porno para aumentar sus ingresos]”, he explained to the agents.

The two began shooting short scenes of extreme porn until a date had yet to be set – between January 10 and 11 – with Fontana murdering her for no apparent reason. That day he recorded two videos at the actress’s house. The first, of a less aggressive nature, was still preserved in the killer’s iPhone. The second, where he ended Maltese’s life, was eliminated. “She was tied [en una barra de striptease], He had a bag on his head. I started hitting his whole body with the hammer, not too hard. Then when I hit the head I started hitting hard, don’t know why. I don’t know what happened to me. I think she was already dead, I didn’t know what to do and I slit her throat with a kitchen knife. I spent half an hour looking at it and then I went home.

The killer first tried to start the fire without success. After freezing the body and disassembling it with equipment purchased from Amazon, they collected the house. “I cleaned the apartment and washed the rags in the washing machine.” Then he put five garbage bags in the freezer with the remains. More than two months later, he dismembered the bodies in the trunk of the victim’s car and drove 120 kilometers to the mountains of Borno (Brescia), where he left them. That day, he returned to his life peacefully. “I say all this because I wanted to take this burden off myself and tell the truth,” he assured in the early hours of Tuesday.

On March 20, a 60-year-old man walking in the area found Maltesi. His body was scattered, his face was burnt and in a decomposition state, making it extremely difficult for the police to identify him. It was possible to recognize him only because of the 15 tattoos that he had and which the Carabinieri published in order to try to enlist the help of acquaintances. Several fans of the actress called to alert her of her identity.

Fontana continued to use the phone of the victim, who also worked as a clerk at a local store, to respond to messages she received. In fact, she was able to avoid questions from people close to her until she received a call from a journalist who was informed of the identity of the actress’ body, who did not believe her and called her. wanted to talk to hear his voice. Fontana put it. And he also continued to use his Fiat 500 as he usually did. On Monday, when he realized that investigators were already following him, he went to the police and officially reported him missing. But during the same statement, when he broke down and confessed his crime.

In Italy alone, 25 women have been murdered since the beginning of the year. Maltesi himself published a video on 25 November condemning the psychological abuse that women often suffer and are unaware of more than the physical: “I have experienced it in my own little personal reality … of physical violence.” There’s a lot to talk about, but it’s also psychologically important because it’s what destroys you”.
