Filippo Turetta's escape, the 22-year-old accused of kidnapping and believed killing his girlfriend Giulia Cecchettin, whose lifeless corpse was discovered in an escarpment in Val Caltea, in the Friulian town of Barcis, came to an end in Saxony-Anhalt, Germany. The arrest happened in the middle of the night between Saturday and Sunday in the town of Bad Dürremberg, around 150 kilometers from Leipzig, after traveling hundreds of kilometers in less than a week. His automobile was parked on the side of the road. One element was crucial: the Grande Punto's lights were turned off, despite German law requiring them to be turned on at all times. A scenario that prompted a passing driver to phone the police and report a possibly dangerous situation. The traffic policemen who came on the scene checked the driver's identity and discovered that the automobile had been reported by Interpol and that a European arrest warrant was outstanding on the young man's head. According to reports, German authorities informed their Italian counterparts that Turetta did not resist arrest. He appeared, in fact, exhausted and despondent. It was also revealed that the automobile was parked on the hard shoulder because it had ran out of gas and the young man had no more money to replenish.
