Italian Porn Star Killed, Food Blogger Arrested

Rome: A porn star’s dismembered body has been discovered by police in Brescia after being put in several bin bags and dumped by the side of the road. 

Mother-of-one Carol Maltesi, 26, who worked under the stage name Charlotte Angie, had starred in a number of erotic movies and had an OnlyFans adult site.

She was last seen alive in January close to her home at Rescaldina near Milan, Italy, and on Tuesday her neighbour, a food blogger named Davide Fontana, 43, was being questioned about her murder.

Police found her dismembered body in several bin bags ten days ago at Borno near Brescia. It is believed the remains had been kept in a freezer before being dumped by the road as they had started to thaw in the warm spring sunshine.

Detectives were able to identify her from six of the 12 distinctive tattoos she had on her body after releasing details earlier this week and a member of the public called in after recognising them from her adult work.

Among the designs was a ‘speckled leopard print’ on her upper right thigh, the words ‘step by step’ on her right leg, ‘wanderlust’ on her right shoulder, ‘elegance is the…’ on her back, te (you) on her left hand and ‘be brave’ on her left elbow.

Cops arrested Fontana after traffic cameras picked up her car in the Borno area and he had then walked into a local police station offering ‘information’ but which was so unconvincing it aroused suspicions.

Carol, who had a six-year-old daughter, had turned to adult work during lockdown to make ends meet and was said to earn up to £10,000 a month.

She had started a relationship with her neighbour Fontana earlier this year but the two are said to have split up.

Fontana told police he had killed her after a row and had burnt her face to hide her identity before dismembering her body and hiding it in bin bags in his freezer.

Carol had been due to take part in an erotic festival in Milan earlier this month but failed to show up and her name was on advertising flyers for the show.

After killing her Fontana had continued to use her phone and sent messages to his victim’s mother saying she had ‘left porn’ but was too busy to explain why.

He even responded to concerned fans who recognised the tattoos by sending them texts claiming to be from Carol saying: ‘Yes, the tattoos look like mine but I’m ok.’

Fontana told cops he had killed her with a hammer after having sex with her but they had rowed.

Earlier this year she had posted a video online in which she spoke out against violence against women saying ‘it’s not just a question of physical violence but psychological violence as well.’

Prosecutor Lorena Ghibaudo said: ’The suspect confessed after being confronted with evidence which dismantled his claims. 

‘He had been using her phone and even paying her rent to make it look as if she was still alive but in reality, he had killed her and dismembered her body.’

Fontana was today in police custody being held on allegations of aggravated voluntary homicide, as well as destruction and hiding of a body.
