A forensic police unit was deployed on Tuesday to investigate the hotel room in Rome of the two US teens accused of killing a Carabinieri officer, according to media reports.
«We obviously participate and have participated, but we do not consider it so relevant,» said Elder's lawyer Roberto Capra about the day's investigation of Christian Gabriel Natale-Hjorth and Finnegan Lee Elder's 'Le... Еще Meridien' hotel room.
Capra said that an official request has been made for all CCTV video footage of the area of the murder. «We believe that through video it can be made clear what actually happened,» he stated.
The two US teens are in custody for the murder of Italian Carabinieri officer Mario Cerciello Rega who was fatally wounded when Elder allegedly stabbed him 11 times with an 18cm (7 inch) knife during a botched drug bust in July.
