Andrea Pizzocolo, who has a five-year-old daughter, was arrested at his home over the weekend after the naked body of 18-year-old Lavinia Simona Ailoaiei was found in a corn field in the northern region of Lombardy.

Pizzocolo reportedly confessed to the crime and told police that he “lost his mind” after his teen lover died on Friday night, La Repubblica said.

Police were able to trace Pizzocolo thanks to a towel, belonging to nearby motel Silk, was found with Ailoaiei’s body in San Martino, Strada, south of Milan. Police officers also found a packet of plastic ties, which match those found around the teenager's neck, at Pizzocolo's home in the Arese area.

According to reports, the pair got to know each other on the internet and met for the first time in person at motel Moon in Busto Arsizio, north of Milan, on Wednesday night.

The accountant and the teen, who had recently celebrated her 18th birthday, returned to the same motel on Friday, the newspaper said.

The couple were reportedly engaging in an erotic game in which Ailoaiei - who went by the name “Dora” online - had plastic ties around her neck. When she began struggling to breath, Pizzocolo said he tried unsuccessfully to loosen the ties, then carried Ailoaiei’s body’s to his car and drove to another motel.

Pizzocolo checked into motel Silk at around 5.00pm on Friday afternoon, drove his car through the gate and carried the woman’s body to the room, without being seen, Corriere della Sera said.

He then allegedly had sex with the corpse, Corriere said. Police found blood and long hair in the bathtub of the motel room, while investigators uncovered Ailoaiei’s identity card and mobile phone from the bin of a restaurant west of Milan.

While police await the result of an autopsy, Pizzocolo has been charged with murder and obscene acts on a corpse.
