Florence

Senegalese man 'confesses to killing American woman'

Migrant says did not intend to kill, no 'erotic game'

Senegalese man 'confesses to killing American woman'

Florence, January 14 - Police have detained a man suspected of murdering Ashley Olsen, a 35-year-old American woman, in Florence last week. The detained man is Cheik Diaw, a 27-year-old undocumented Senegalese migrant known to the police for drugs-related issues. He has admitted being responsible for her death, but said he did not intend to kill her, sources said. Prosecutors said the man was held on the basis of DNA evidence taken at the crime scene. "There is very serious evidence of his guilt," Florence Prosecutor Giuseppe Creazzo told a news conference Thursday. The man was detained overnight and interrogated until 04:00 Italian time. Diaw said he had sexual relations with Olsen after meeting her in a club and going to her home, according to the sources. He said they subsequently argued and she banged her head after he pushed her, they said. He said that the bruising on her neck, which led coroners to conclude she had been strangled, resulted from his efforts to lift her up, according to the sources. Olsen, originally from Florida, was living in Florence where her father, an architect, works at an art school. She was found dead at her rented apartment on Saturday. An autopsy found that she had been strangled with a cord or rope. The detained man was identified with the help of footage from surveillance cameras that showed him going from a club to Olsen's home with her early last Friday. Creazzo said Olsen had two fractures to her skull, which suggested the murder was carried out in two stages, first with an attack with a blunt instrument and then via strangulation. Prosecutors said that there is no evidence to suggest that an erotic game gone wrong was a factor in the murder. "There is no trace of an erotic game," Creazzo said, adding that he believed the pair had "consensual sex". He stressed, however, that he believed both the suspect and the victim may have been under the influence of alcohol or drugs. "It's possible that both parties may not have been lucid," said Creazzo. "We are waiting for the results of the toxicological tests (but) we have reason to believe that they took substances that did not leave them lucid, certainly alcohol, maybe something else". He added that there was nothing to suggest the pair knew each other previously. Creazzo added that, after Olsen was killed, Diaw fled with her mobile phone and put his SIM card into it.
