Filtered news/Pasolini murder case to be reopened

Pier Paolo Pasolini

The case of the murder of Italian film director Pier Paolo Pasolini, who was killed in 1975, is to be reopened by Rome police after the man convicted of his murder renounced his earlier confession. The official version of Pasolini's murder is that he was killed by a 17-year-old hustler called Pelosi in a deserted beach in Ostia, near Rome. But Pelosi said in a recent TV interview that the murder was in fact committed by a gang of three people. For long this official version has been contested since many believe that Pasolini was killed by fascists who used his homosexuality as a cover-up. The reopening of the case may signal that the truth will finally be revealed.
