Except for a sigh, the boy’s grandfather, Lucio Potente. Yesterday at the hearing held by the investigating judge of BellunoEnrica Marson, in the presence of prosecutor Simone Marcon and public defender Giuseppe Triolo, the investor did not participate. sunday in fact She was transferred from the Giudecca prison to the Venice hospital and admitted to psychiatryin a single room guarded by two prison police officers, due to suffering from post-traumatic shock.
The prosecutor has decided to further assess his conditions mental health, so yesterday there was no contact between the investigating judges and the suspect. But the relevant clinical documentation was acquired by the doctors. From the moment the woman’s health conditions allow it, the investigating judge will have five days to submit her to the interrogation that was skipped yesterday morning and it concluded precisely with the validation of the detention and preventive detention in prison, motivated by the danger of recidivism of the crime.

a person in trouble
The young woman had already been wandering since the fall of 2022 between Trentino Alto Adige and Veneto, sleeping and eating in her father’s car transformed into a kind of travel home, equipped with a mattress, food, water. Hutter from last May she had been denounced in Bolzano because during a dispute with a shopping center employee the police had found a hammer in her backpack. A promise of athletics, Angelika had become a precarious graphic designer, showing some mental instability aggravated by Covid. As she writes on her Facebook profile, the infection would have become a kind of watershed between a common life and alimit existencemarked by anger and restlessness and characterized by his “tour in Italy”. It was during this period that his difficulty in making himself understood would begin.the propensity for intricate and often incomprehensible metaphors, his different feeling, with increasingly disconnected thoughts. Like the reflection shared some time ago with friends: “Where is the line between sanity and madness, and who defines it?”
Crimes through social networks
Social networks have always pulled one rain of insults unrepeatable and threateningu Hutter and lawyer Triolo, as to induce the Belluno Criminal Chamber to show solidarity with the defender. Faced with comments such as: “It takes courage to be his lawyer, put him in jail too”; or: “Do these lawyers who defend the indefensible have a conscience?” the president of the Belluno Bar Association, Daniele Tormen, brought the case to the attention of the trade council. But there are also those who insult an Angelika Hutter on Facebook which, however, appears to be a namesake, not the original: “It’s fun to kill Italians in a car, isn’t it?”, writes Alessandro Ogheri. The interested party responds with a like, while a friend specifies: “It’s not her.” Ogheri replies: “We can only hope that the Italian prosecutor sees the ‘like’ of her here.”
Controversies and investigations
Alfredo Antoniozzi, deputy leader of the Italian Brothers group in the Chamber, raises more controversy: «We were easy prophets when we said that Angelika Hutter’s defense would have invoked some semi-illness or ailment, but we are astonished by the decision of the examining magistrate to order her admission to psychiatry. In Italy there is a predisposition to appoint experts who have scenarios of impunity, but in most cases mental illness has nothing to do with it. And while Angelika went from “I don’t remember anything, I’m in the abyss” to bursts of crying until silence, her lawyer pointed out: “She can’t stay in jail, the accident was a misfortune that could happen.” to anyone she had not drunk or taken drugs, she needs help ». Now the prosecutor is awaiting the results of the reports on the speed with which Hutter proceeded at the time of the drama. (apparently 80/90 kilometers per hour against the limit of 50) and on the cell phone, confiscated to find out if he was using it at the time. The investigators then contacted the German police, who were asked about a criminal record, complaints or conduct worthy of interest against Angelika.
