Brescia, Italy – An Italian man solved his unemployment woes by jumping to his death after chucking his two young children off a sixth-floor balcony.
According to reports, 41-year-old Marco Turrini had lost his job at an advertising company 18-months ago and had been having problems finding employment.
Growing more depressed and despondent over lack of income, he reached a breaking point the other day following an argument with his wife that was heard by neighbors.
That’s when he grabbed their two kids, 14-month-old Benedetta and 4-year-old Samuele, and tossed them off the balcony of their sixth-floor apartment. After unsuccessfully trying to push his wife through a window, Turrini jumped to his death.
Turrini died instantly, but his daughter and son survived the landing, only to die later at the hospital.
Turrini had no history of violence, nor did he have a criminal record, but friends and family say he feared losing his wife and his home as his financial crisis worsened. Adding to all of this, Turrini’s father committed suicide last year by hanging himself.
His wife, Natasha, is being treated at the hospital for extreme shock.Tags: Crime, Italy, Marco Turrini, Murder, Suicide
