A tragic story

Edi Vesco, author of Il Magicolibro — I Segreti Del Mondo Di Harry Potter [The Magic Book — The Secrets Of the World of Harry Potter], “billed as the world’s most complete guide to JK Rowling’s boy wizard Harry Potter,” was murdered by her 18-year-old son on New Year’s Day in Milan. Read about the tragedy here (Italian) or here (English).

This is a truly horrifying and very sad story. If it’s particularly grey and dreary where you are, of if you’re easily disturbed or depressed (the details are pretty gruesome), think twice about following the links above.

Addio, Signora Vesco.


  1. Edi was a very good friend....
    She wrote some chapters of the book in my home.... We laughed so much...
    She was a delightiful, joyful person....
    His son is a gentle boy, I don't understand what happened...
    Please, remember Edi as a joyful and loving woman, and forget those horrible details....

    Ciao Marquise Poisson

  2. Thank you very much for coming to my blog and leaving this comment. I so am very sorry for the loss of your friend, and I will share your words in a new post for those readers who may have missed the original story. I think you are right that it is better to remember the good and not the bad. Ciao.
