An Italian woman originally from Mestre (Venice), Pamela Codardini, 35 years old, was found killed in Mexico where she had lived for years, in the town of Ocotlán de Morelos, together with her partner, Juan Yair, in a shop that the two managed.
The double crime - Il Gazzettino reports today - occurred in the late afternoon of Saturday 27 January.
The bodies and traces of the shooting, probably carried out by a commando, were found on the spot.
The ambush could be linked to a settling of scores within the 'narcos' groups, to which Yair probably belonged.
In 2013, again in Mexico, Pamela Codardini's husband, Alex Bertoli, a chef originally from Capriva del Friuli (Gorizia) who ran a pizzeria with her, was killed.
He was beaten to death with a stick and then burned alive.
