Area 16: Cottage

Posted by The Wiki Team

Crime scene photos

16-01   The cottage had a driveway gate. The driveway gate could be opened by key, or via an electronic ‘buzzer’ release via an intercom system inside the cottage. If someone did not have a key, they could ring a buzzer at the gate and speak to anyone in the cottage via the intercom, and the person inside the cottage could ‘ring’ open the gate. This system is very common in Italy.

16-02   The cottage had an upper apartment inhabited by 4 young women and basement apartment, inhabited by 4 young men.

16-03   The upper apartment front door had a security grille that was apparently not being used. (Romanelli 2009)

16-04   The front door latch was faulty and required deadbolt operation by key, both internally and externally, to keep the door closed. (Romanelli 2009)

16-05   The front door showed no signs of damage or attempts to break in. (Nencini Motivations report, crime scene photos).

16-08   Mezzetti’s room and the large bathroom had no blood traces.

16-09   Guede’s feces were found in the large bathroom.

16-10   Blood traces were on the kitchen/dining room floor, the corridor floor and in various places in the small bathroom.
