Case History
The victim was located in a meadow in Cavaria, a town in the province of Varese, Italy on October 4, 2001. A boot was found in which there were human bones: a fibula and a foot. The rest of the body was found over the following days, hidden in a hole in the woods.
According to a number of witnesses, the victim could have been a young Albanian prostitute who used the name Viola and is thought to have disappeared around 1995. At the time, Viola was twenty-three years old. She had been arrested during police roundups in Milan, and probably went to the Tuscany and Emilia regions as well, before retuning to Lombardy. In Milan she frequented the Piazza Duca D'Aosta, on the Via Vittor Pisani and in the Gran Bar cafe at the train station.
