Man kills his parents because they asked him to take the family dog for a walk.
Since his parents asked him to walk the family dog, a man admitted to murdering them.
Benno Neumair, 30, the perpetrator, was arrested on January 29. His teachers parents, Peter Neumair and Laura Perselli, went missing earlier this year in the city of Bolzano in the northern Italian province of South Tyrol.
Laura’s body was later discovered in the Adige river with evidence of strangulation, although her husband’s body was never identified, though traces of his blood were discovered on a nearby bridge, according to Mail Online.
The victims’ son, a bodybuilder, has now admitted to the murders, claiming that he killed his father after a short argument and then murdered his mother when she walked in on them arguing.
When the father ordered his son to get out of bed and take the family dog for a stroll, the dispute that led to the murder began.
The father and son got into an altercation because he declined. Benno said, “My father called me a disappointment. I just wanted to be alone. As a result, I silenced him.”
He said he went to his room to sleep in order to escape a fight with his father. He argued that his father had woken him up and that he wasn’t doing his fair share of the household chores.
To silence him, he tried to strangle him.
“I grabbed the first climbing rope I saw in my tools’ plastic tray,” he explained. We collided in the hallway and both fell to the ground. I just remember clenching my fingers tightly.”
Benno said that when his mother came home, he strangled her with the same cord.
According to the boy, he then hurled their bodies into the river from a bridge.
Mr. Benno is now being held in a Bolzano jail on charges of murder and body concealment while the trial is ongoing.
