The woman left a suicide note on the kitchen table which read: “I’m taking Alessandra away with me, I’m sorry I ask for forgiveness.”
A mother left a suicide note for her husband then hanged her 14-year-old daughter before killing herself.
Mariolina Nigrelli, 40, and her daughter Alessandra Mollica were found dead on May 31 in their country home in Sicily, southern Italy, by the teens’ father.
The mum also left a note on the kitchen table which read: “I’m taking Alessandra away with me, I’m sorry I ask for forgiveness.”
According to local media, when the father, Maurizio Mollica, had last spoken to his wife a day before, they had disputes over their daughter’s education.
He told La Republicca: “Yesterday afternoon, shortly after seven, my wife did not answer the phone. I was worried.
“I looked for them everywhere in the village, then I went to our country house. And there I found myself in front of the tragedy.”
The well-known blacksmith had found his wife and teenage daughter’s lifeless bodies and immediately called the authorities.
He cried as he told investigators that the marriage was strained and the arguments in their relationship had made it very tense.
An autopsy is still to be carried out on the bodies however investigators believe the cause of death was murder-suicide but the investigation is still ongoing.
