"From the investigations carried out today it emerged that the causes of death are attributable to 'multiple injuries to the thoraco-abdominal organs': at the moment, therefore, it would seem excluded that the death was caused by an illness or a pathology".
The 33-year-old driver of the minibus who died in the serious road accident in Capri is the lawyer Giovanna Cacciapuoti, lawyer of the victim's family, to announce the first results of the autopsy carried out on the body of Emanuele Melillo.
"In any case - continues the criminal lawyer - we must wait for the outcome of the histological examinations of the heart and brain, and of the toxicological one, to get a clearer picture".
The post for the autopsy was awarded in the morning to the medical examiner Marta Moccia, in the offices of the Naples Public Prosecutor's Office. The expert operations, in the presence of the consultant of the party Dr. Francesco Paciolla, began around 13, in the Second Polyclinic of Naples, and ended around 15. The deputy prosecutor of Naples Domenico Musto ruled against the request for cremation of the body which, at this point, will not be returned to the family for burial and will remain in custody in the Second Polyclinic pending any further investigations which, at the moment, cannot be excluded. The report of the consultant appointed by the Public Prosecutor will be delivered within 60 days.
The conditions of the injured in the Capri accident, hospitalized in the hospital of the Sea in Naples, improve. Of the thirteen initially transferred to the Neapolitan structure, two were discharged; another 10 are under clinical observation, the prognosis is currently reserved only for one patient, for whom a nephrectomy operation is not excluded, but the doctors still hope to be able to avoid.
