Police probe pensioner hypothermia death
Lived in unheated apartment, couldn't pay gas bills11 December, 16:52
The retiree lived with his 69-year-old wife and two daughters aged 47 and 43 in an unheated apartment in a residential neighborhood.
The family's gas was cut off a year ago after they were unable to pay their bills. The man received a monthly 800-euro pension, and his wife did occasional jobs. The family apparently never requested aid from social services.
The extreme-right Forza Nuova (New Force) movement called for a manslaughter investigation into whether or not the gas company and social services should be held responsible.
