A man has been arrested for allegedly murdering an adult film star and hacking her body into pieces before impersonating her to cover his tracks.
Milan-based bank teller Davide Fontana has admitted to killing his neighbor Carol Maltesi, a 26-year-old Italian-Dutch artist named Charlotte Angie, with a hammer in January, according to Italian police.
Fontana allegedly cut her into 15 pieces and “placed the dismembered body in a freezer he installed in her home” before staging an elaborate cover-up, he reported The Telegraph.
Fontana is said to have paid the dead woman’s rent and responded to messages on her cellphone to make it appear as if she were still alive. The 43-year-old bank teller allegedly texted Maltesi’s mother saying she had “quit porn” and was too busy to explain why.
He should also have sent something The daily beast described as “dirty” messages to her boyfriend who lives in Holland.
Despite the alleged cover-up attempts, Maltesi was reported missing after failing to show up to an event at a lap dance club earlier this month. Fontana is said to have then dumped her remains in garbage bags on a mountain road in the province of Brescia, two hours from Milan.
The dismembered body was “found by a passerby who spotted a hand covered in purple glitter nail polish,” according to The Telegraph last week.
Investigators were unable to identify the body because the face was burned, but released a description that included details of 11 tattoos on the body parts.
When several concerned friends and fans who recognized the tattoos tried to get in touch with Maltesi, Fontana reportedly texted back: “Yes, they look like mine. But luckily I’m fine.”
“Assassin on the Loose”
As police continued to try to identify the body, a local investigative journalist began investigating the disappearance of Maltesi, “who had started working as an OnlyFans model and worked on a number of adult films during the pandemic.” the report The sun.
Andrea Tortelli told The Telegraph that she began messaging her WhatsApp account after receiving “a lead” as to the true identity of the dismembered woman. Despite receiving replies that appeared to have come from Maltesi, the exchange fell silent when Tortelli pressed for a voice message to confirm her identity – prompting him to contact law enforcement.
“I thought, ‘The only person who would pretend to be a dead woman is the person who killed her. So basically an assassin is on the loose. “I decided to take all my information to the Carabinieri,” Tortelli said.
After police released her name, Fontana reportedly came forward and claimed he knew Maltesi but had nothing to do with her disappearance.
However, detectives who claim to have uncovered inconsistencies in his story began tracking his movements in recent months. Video surveillance archives allegedly showed Fontana and Maltesi getting into their car in January.
And according to police, a search of his home uncovered garbage bags of the kind used to wrap her dismembered body, along with DNA evidence linking Fontana to the murder.
When confronted with the evidence, Fontana is said to have confessed that he “accidentally” killed her during a consensual tryst.
