A mother who claimed her four-year-old daughter was kidnapped by masked men has confessed to stabbing her and burying her in a field.

Police believe she may have been jealous that her daughter hooked up with her ex’s new partner.

Martina Patti, 24, first told police her daughter Elena Del Pozzo was attacked by three masked men.

She claimed the armed gang kidnapped the girl on Monday June 13 as she was leaving kindergarten.

Patti’s former mother-in-law, Rosaria Testa, said Patti told her the kidnapping was the work of Elena’s father, Alessandro Nicodemo Del Pozzo, 24.

But police questioned this version of events, not least because surveillance cameras had not recorded a suspicious presence.

The next morning, when her home in Catania, Sicily, Italy was searched by police, she confessed and admitted to hacking her daughter to death with a kitchen knife.

She took officers to the nearby field, where she wrapped the girl in garbage bags and partially buried her in a shallow grave she dug herself

Officers noted that the girl had been stabbed multiple times in the neck, upper back and behind the ear. They sent her body for an autopsy.

Investigators said the woman couldn’t name a motive, claiming, “I wasn’t myself.”

They arrested her for aggravated murder and concealing a body.

The police are now trying to find out what made the mother kill her own daughter.

They found that the relationship between her and her ex-partner was one of violence and jealousy.

They also believe that she may have been jealous of her ex’s new partner and of the possible bond between her ex’s new partner and her daughter.

Catania Carabinieri boss Piercarmine Sica said: “One of the possible reasons that led Martina Patti to carry out the act could be jealousy, not only of her ex-partner’s new partner, but also of her daughter’s possible affection for the one Woman.”

Patti’s ex Alessandro was arrested for robbery in 2020 but later acquitted. He has some prior convictions for drug dealing.

He was seen bursting into tears as he arrived at the scene with his new partner.

Tonight (Wednesday, June 15) there will be a Mass in memory of little Elena in the Church of San Vito in Mascalucia.

Meanwhile, the investigation continues.
