Murder probe opened into death of teacher at school

Suspected stabbing victim in middle school near Naples

(ANSA) - ROME, SEP 28 - A murder probe has been opened into the death of a teacher at a school near Naples on Tuesday night, legal sources said Wednesday.
    The man, Marcello Toscano, 64, was reported missing at around eight o'clock and his body found in the Marino Guarano middle school at Melito di Napoli at around ten thirty.
    Preliminary analysis of the body appears to show he was killed by a knife.
    The school is the same one where a 13-year-old boy was wounded in the back by a stabbing last May and where two months previously an 11-year-old girl was attacked by a peer in a bathroom.
    Police suspect another knife attack in the case of Toscano, who was married with two children and had in the past served various terms as municipal councillor in the nearby town of Mugnano.
    The man's body was found behind a bush in the school grounds by Carabinieri police who had gone looking for him after his son raised the alarm. (ANSA).
