Journalist, ex mayor dead after accidentally cutting throat

Burglars initially suspected, but 'no third parties involved'

(ANSA) - ROME, JUN 28 - Carabinieri police found a 57-year-old dead in the garden of his home in Corte Palasio, in the northern province of Lodi, with two cuts to the throat late on Monday and an accidental death is suspected.
    The police rushed to the scene after neighbours heard screams and sounded the alarm.
    The victim, Pierangelo Repanati, a journalist who was the mayor of the town between 2004 and 2009, was initially thought to have been attacked while watering plants in his garden.
    Investigators said they suspected robbers killed him during an attempted burglary.
    But prosecutor Domenico Chiaro said the case was "to be linked, with growing probability, to an accidental event with the exclusion of voluntary action by third persons".
    Police found pieces of broken glass Repanati in his home which they think may have featured in the likely accident. (ANSA).
