The Swiss Guard Massacre

by Jacopo Pezzan & Giacomo Brunoro.

On May 4th, 1998, occurred one of the most bloody crimes ever committed in the Vatican city: the body of the new commander of the Swiss Guard Alois Estermann, his wife Gladys Meza Romero and the vice Corporal Cedric Tornay were found dead in a pool of blood.

There is an official reconstruction and an official truth for this terrible crime, but many people are still wondering how things really went.

Pezzan and Brunoro retrace step by step this story to try to understand if there may be an alternative truth to the one established by the courts of the Holy See, in order to untangle one of the most murky and tangled cases in the recent history of the Vatican.
