The body of the Albanian elderly man was found dismembered in Italy, the boy says: I don’t know who wanted to hurt him, he was dismembered for no reason
Shefki Kurti, 72 years old of Albanian origin, was found dismembered and hidden in four black bags, thrown into the Adigetto river in the province of Rovigo on July 28 in Italy.
Alketa Kurti and Arben Kurti are the two children of the 72-year-old.
Alketa lives in Switzerland, while Arbeni lives a few meters away from her parents in Badia Polesine municipality. He is a well-known DJ in the surrounding area and the owner of the “Babylon” disco, which is located next to his parents’ apartment.
He confessed to the Italian media that his father Shefki Kurti left the apartment on July 22, 2022 after a small quarrel with his mother, that is, with his co-wife.
He clarified that the information that they did not report their father’s disappearance is not true. On July 24, 2022, two days after Shefki left the apartment, Arbeni, the son, informed the police that his father had left the apartment after a fight with his mother.
The story of the Kurti family is similar to thousands of other Albanian families who have immigrated to Italy. At the beginning of the 90s, Shefkiu, who was about 40 years old and the father of two small children, worked as a bricklayer, arrived from Durrës in Italy.
They first lived in the municipality of Salvaterra and then bought the apartment in Badia Polesine.
“No one wanted harm to the father, not even us,” are Arbeni’s words to the local Italian media, adding that “he has faith in justice and in finding the perpetrators of this crime.”
The Rovigo prosecutor’s office is investigating intentional murder, dismemberment and hiding the body.
Shefki Kurti left without even taking his cell phone with him, from which at the moment no details have been revealed that could help the investigation.
According to the neighbor’s confession, his black Citroen vehicle was not seen for several days after Shefik’s departure, but the police authorities found it parked a few meters near the apartment.
No family member of Shefki Kurti has a criminal record or problems with justice.
At the moment, the authorities have seized the apartment where the elderly couple lived, and the event continues to remain a mystery.
Born on August 7, 1950 in Durrës, married, with two children, a mason by profession and retired, Shefki Kurti lived for several years in Italy, in the municipality of Badia Polesine in the province of Rovigo.
It took 5 days to identify the Albanian’s name after finding his mutilated body parts, sealed in urban waste bags and thrown into the river.
On the morning of July 28, the personnel dealing with the reclamation of Adigeto, found the left leg in the river channel and a few hours later on the same day, closed in four black bags, the body, head and arms were found. On July 31, the right leg was found and only a few hours ago it was possible to confirm the identity of the mutilated body.
The first investigations of the coroner revealed that the body of the Albanian Shefki Kurti had been in the water for almost a week. Authorities hope the autopsy will reveal the cause of his death before the body was mutilated and dumped in the river.
