Back in 2018 an 18-year-old Italian woman named Pamela Mastropietro was raped and murdered by an illegal Nigerian immigrant named Innocent Oseghale. After she was killed, Ms. Mastropietro’s body was dismembered. There are credible reports that Mr. Oseghale had accomplices when committing his atrocities, allegedly confirmed by a police wiretap.
Mr. Oseghale was convicted of Pamela’s murder several years ago, and now he has finally been sentenced. The court determined that his victim had been sexually assaulted, so he has been sentenced to life in prison.
The following video features responses to the sentence by the family and friends of Pamela Mastropietro. Many thanks to HeHa for the translation, and to Vlad Tepes and RAIR Foundation for the subtitling:

Pamela Mastropietro homicide
Life in prison confirmed for Oseghale
The girl’s mother: “There are other monsters out there to be arrested”
Life imprisonment is confirmed for Innocent Oseghale, accused of murdering and dismembering 18-year-old Pamela Mastropietri in January 2018 at Macerata.
The accused was not present in the courtroom at the time the sentence was read.
On the other hand, the parents of the young girl were there. The supplementary appeals trial only concerned the crime of sexual violence and was sent to Perugia for procedural questions after the court of Cassation had definitively confirmed the conviction for homicide.
Alessandra Verni, Pamela Mastropietro’s mother, calls the decision for the confirmation of sexual violence and thus, life imprisonment for Innocent Oseghale, “just”, but maintains that “there are other monsters out there to arrest”. She said that at the end of the supplementary appeal in Perugia, dressed in a t-shirt with the face of her daughter. “I hope it is life without any reduction of sentence. As I said in Macerata, one down. Now let’s see the others,” she added. “We want the others,” Pamela’s mother said again, “because there is proof that there were also others. This sentence gives me a bit of relief.”
|00:00||A monster is in jail, for sure.|
|00:03||Now I expect them to arrest the others, too.|
|00:07||My family and I will be fighting for it.|
|00:14||Pamela deserves this round of applause instead.|
|00:17||A round of applause for her.|
|00:26||The Court of Perugia has confirmed the life sentence given to Innocent Oseghale,|
|00:29||charged with murdering and dismembering a 18-year-old girl, Pamela Mastropietro.|
|00:39||Life sentence! Thank God, I am so happy!|
|00:44||I am so happy! After five years, we didn’t expect a second trial on the ascertainment of rape.|
|00:53||Now that the rape has been confirmed…|
|01:00||It’s a victory. —What was the first thing you thought of,|
|01:06||as soon as they read the verdict?|
|01:10||My daughter. My daughter.|
|01:13||Do you think that the images that you brought into court|
|01:17||somehow played a role, in this second trial? —I don’t know.|
|01:23||What I did last time was due to my exasperation,|
|01:28||because, as I have said, it was not tolerable, that after five years,|
|01:31||they were still discussing whether she was raped or not.|
|01:34||Not to mention all the things that haven’t been done in the last five years,|
|01:38||and so many things that still need to be done.|
|01:41||So, since I was an exasperated parent,|
|01:46||I showed the pictures that time.|
|01:49||I don’t know whether it helped, yet I did it.|
|01:57||Pamela deserves this round of applause instead. —What changes for you, from tomorrow on?|
|02:04||There’s a monster in jail, for sure.|
|02:07||Now I expect them to arrest the others, too.|
|02:11||And my family and I will be fighting for it.|
|02:14||There are other monsters out there on the loose.|
|02:18||So I hope they will continue the investigation.|
|02:22||Because, I say it once again, there is evidence: the wiretap proves|
|02:26||there were other people in that house on January 30, 2018.|
|02:31||We have never hugged, have we?|
|02:34||Never. We burst out crying as a liberation because five years of trials are lots of time.|
|02:40||So it was joy, a cry of joy and liberation.|
|02:44||We hope so. It felt like the very first day of trial,|
|02:48||back when the judge said “life sentence” for the first time.|
|02:53||It’s like going back to that day, because it became nothing, later on.|
|02:57||During these five years things went not always as we expected,|
|03:02||so we were afraid of another failure, actually.|
|03:06||Also because we had to listen to all the facts, once again.|
|03:10||The defendant’s lawyers were pretty tough, and used tough words,|
|03:17||and we were afraid, to the end. But we made it, after all.
Thank God !!, that poor mother, finally she gets some peace, but another Three of this animals, monsters are on the loose !!, I’m sure they help this filthy animal pack the body in the suitcase, He didn’t do this by himself..
So he will spent the next 20 or so years in prison paid by hardworking people.
Either put him in a prison, where he reduces a big rock to pebbles or just take him behind the shed.
On the other hand: Tie him up and give him to the family.
I know what I would do if this happened to one of my family and the state would turn the perpetrator over to me.
I think I would tell my boss I need a vacation.
And buy some knives.
Knives are too kind.
Its amazing what one can do with a simple hammer. And the Iraqis practically made an art form out of using a power drill on flesh and bone.
In the Tom Clancy novel “Without Remorse” there’s a scene where the protagonist uses a diving/depressurization chamber in a very creative manner to obtain information from a particularly nasty and vicious criminal. Not that there would be much information to obtain from a beast like Innocent, but one never knows until one tries.
I have found the South African method of a tire necklace to very effective. Either that, or feed them to the wild life. Africans are very afraid of anything with teeth.
Quite definitely if the Death penalty were in force that would be this individuals fate, but alternatively now he should be castrated and that should be the immediate punishment for any crime of Rape.
While that newly code is in force, that proof is expendable when a woman claims whatever was done to her? Careful what you’re asking for.
