Giulia Tramontano was hit with at least 37 stab wounds, two of which were lethal in the neck region, one severed the carotid artery. There are no signs of defense. These are the first results of the autopsy carried out on the corpse of the 29-year-old 7-month-pregnant woman killed by Alessandro Impagnatiello. The stab wounds were almost all inflicted in the upper part of the body, one also in the face and one punctured a lung. There are no signs of stab wounds to the abdomen.
With further analysis, however, others could also be identified, up to almost forty in total. Two lethal ones: one that severed the carotid artery and the other always in the neck area and that hit the subclavian artery. It is not yet possible to say with certainty (only subsequent reports will be able to establish it) if Giulia was attacked from behind, but it is one of the prevailing hypotheses. At least two were inflicted on the back. The Prosecutor's Office has already contested in the request for pre-trial detention, in addition to premeditation, also the aggravating circumstance of cruelty (not recognized by the investigating magistrate), and this dynamic of murder strengthens the hypothesis. It is difficult, with the analyzes carried out today, to date the crime - which should have occurred, according to the investigations carried out so far, between 19 and 20.30 on Saturday 27 May - because the burns have altered the tissues and there are no hypostatic stains. All other answers, including the results of toxicological tests, those on the fetus and, for example, whether the body was burned when it was already dead (this is one of the questions), can only come with the filing of final reports entrusted to a pool of forensic doctors and specialists.
Tramontano murder, Meloni: 'As a mother I called Giulia's mother'
From a legal point of view, the position of little Thiago could change if Giulia had begun labor. This was explained by the lawyer Giovanni Cacciapuoti, lawyer of the victim's family, leaving the institute of forensic medicine. "We do not know if under the stress of the homicide action, there may have been an impulse of increase, for example of oxytocin. If labor had begun, there would be a mutation of the charge."
"To have the availability of the body - he added - it takes a few days, also to be able to organize the funeral rite to Giulia and little Thiago. In the middle of next week we hope to have the body to be able to provide for the funeral. The family is stunned by this pain, but knows that these times are needed for the investigations. Today the father was present with another family member".

"Unfortunately we cannot be present at this torchlight procession in memory of our dear Giulia and Thiago. However, we want to send our message of thanks to all those present for the closeness shown to us". This was written in an Instagram story by Chiara, Giulia Tramontano's sister, sharing a video of the event that was held last night in Sant'Antimo, in the Neapolitan area, in memory of the 29-year-old killed by her partner and the child she was carrying. "The affection and warmth of all of you is a source of great support for us. Our love for Giulia and Thiago, eternal, boundless and insatiable is the most ardent among the flames of this and all the torchlight processions in their memory. No feeling of hatred can ever extinguish this fire, in which we yearn and warm ourselves at the same time. For us Giulia is and will always be: caring mother, loving sister and unforgettable daughter". Thanking, he also signed on behalf of his mother Loredana, father Franco and brother Mario.
The flowers in front of the institute A bouquet of pink oleander flowers were left in front of the institute
of forensic medicine. "I didn't know her, but it seemed nice to her," said the lady who brought the small bouquet. "She's here in Milan and I jumped in to pay homage to her as a stupid woman. I was very struck by this story - she added with emotion -, first of all because she was expecting a child, and then you can't kill a person like that. It's absurd."
