RIP Pippa Bacca
‘World peace’ hitcher is murdered

Ms di Marineo (above) was hitch-hiking to the Middle East with a fellow artist.

An Italian woman artist who was hitch-hiking to the Middle East dressed as a bride to promote world peace has been found murdered in Turkey. The naked body of Giuseppina Pasqualino di Marineo, 33, known as Pippa Bacca, was found in bushes near the northern city of Gebze on Friday.

She had said she wanted to show that she could put her trust in the kindness of local people.
Turkish police say they have detained a man in connection with the killing. Reports say the man led the police to the body.

Autopsy

Ms di Marineo was hitch-hiking from Milan to Israel and the Palestinian Territories with a fellow artist on their “Brides on Tour” project. They had separated in Istanbul, planning to reunite in Beirut. Ms di Marineo was last seen on 31 March in Gebze.

An Italian embassy official told the Associated Press news agency police tracked the man when he put a new SIM card into Ms di Marineo’s mobile phone. Local media identified the suspect only by the initials MK and said he had a previous conviction for theft.
Ms di Marineo’s sister, who had gone to Turkey to look for her, identified the body. An autopsy is being conducted in Istanbul.

“Her travels were for an artistic performance and to give a message of peace and of trust, but not everyone deserves trust,” another sister, Maria, told the Italian news agency, Ansa.
