Agitu Gudeta, Ethiopian businesswoman, was found Tuesday dead in her apartment in Frassilongo ,the Mocheni Valley,Italy.
Her body was found in her bedroom on Thursday in the afternoon. Adams Suleimani, said to be originally from Ghana, whom she rehired about two months ago to take care of goat grazing is said to be behind her murder,according to a report by La Republica, an Italian daily newspaper.
Carabinieri ,Italian paramilitary police, stopped the suspect in the evening for an investigation which was led by the provincial commander Michele Capurso.
He reportedly confessed that he hammered her to death first after hitting her four or five times, and committed sexual violence after her body was lying on the floor of her bedroom. “The man admitted his guilt during the interrogation in front of the police and the magistrate,” said the report by La Repubblica.
His confession is said to be consistent with the findings from a police investigation.
He is currently in prison in Trento.
He is said to have told police that there was discussion about unpaid monthly salary.
Agitu Gudeta was seen as a role model for the integration of immigrants and as an environmentalist.
Originally from Addis Ababa,Ethiopia, the forty-two years old woman had a farming business in the small Ethiopian community of about 2000 people. She was raising goats and making goat cheese.
Before immigrating to Italy, she was in the country as a student and had studied sociology. She immigrated to Italy as a refugee in 2010.
It is unclear if her body will be flown to Ethiopia for burial.
