Mother Admits Killing Baby In London Hotel Room And Dumping Body In A Bin

Published

on

a Mother has pleaded guilty at the Old Bailey to killing her baby in a London hotel room before dumping the child’s body in a bin.
On Monday, 22 February at the Old Bailey, Federica Boscolo-Gnolo, 32 (03.01.84) of no fixed abode, admitted manslaughter on the grounds of diminished responsibility.

Boscolo-Gnolo, an Italian national from Chioggia, initially reported to police that her baby daughter had been abducted from the hotel she was staying in shortly after she checked in.
The court heard that Boscolo-Gnolo, who had been living and working in the UK since 2013, had checked into the Lily Hotel, near Earl’s Court on Saturday, 24 January 2015.
She was seen carrying her two-month-old daughter, named Farah, and just a few possessions.
Boscolo-Gnolo checked out of the hotel without Farah on the same day before contacting her parents in Italy. They were concerned for their daughter and granddaughter’s welfare and flew to London on Thursday, 29 January 2015.
They took Boscolo-Gnolo to Hammersmith police station to report Farah missing but detectives later arrested the mother in connection with the baby’s disappearance.

Despite extensive searches at the hotel and the local rubbish dump, Farah’s body has never been located.

Detective Inspector Jamie Stevenson, of the Met’s Homicide and Major Crime Command said: “This is a tragic case for all involved and Boscolo-Gnolo will have to live with her actions for the rest of her life.
“Farah had already been rejected by her father who chose not to be a part of her life, she was then victim to the one person who should have protected her most.
“Boscolo-Gnolo’s parents now have to come to terms with losing their daughter, and their granddaughter who they were just getting to know.”
Federica Boscolo-Gnolo is due to be sentenced at the Old Bailey on 8 April.

Nine-year-old boy locked in safe during game of hide and seek

Published

A Nine-year-old boy became trapped in a safe during a game of hide and seek at his grandfathers home in Berlin.

He had to be rescued by firefighters after he hid inside the sade. He was playing with his little brother at home in Lichterfelde, Berlin.

Believing he has found the perfect hiding place the boy went inside the unused safe and closed the door locking himself in.

The boy was playing with his little brother at the home in Lichterfelde, Berlin, when he found the ultimate hiding place.

His hiding place was eventually found but his grandfather was the only person who knew the code for the safe and he was away.

They could not get in contact with him and called for help from the local fire brigade.

They tested family birthdays for three hours in the hope they’d crack the code while pumping oxygen into the safe via a tiny crack.

As a specialist team arrived who was able to cut the safe open they managed to enter a successful six-digit code.

Firefighters say the child remained calm throughout the ordeal and was shocked but unharmed.

Berlin firefighter Thomas Kirstein said it was a happy ending and super early Christmas present.

Hopefully, he won’t be hiding in there again and in future, they’ll be keeping the door shut because this incident could have been very different.
