It has been reported that a woman who was imprisoned in a dungeon has been freed after a decade. The woman was tortured and raped by a monster who eventually forced her to give birth to two of his children, police have said. The man’s name is Aloisio Francesco Rosario Giordano and he is 52 years old.
He was arrested over this weekend and has been accused of holding the 29-year-old woman prisoner in a basement. The basement was under his shed in Gizzeria, Italy, according to The Sun.
Police saw the man holding a child in his arms, and noticed how dirty the child he had with him was. Once they noticed this, they immediately asked the man to show where the child lived. The police eventually found a “filthy and dilapidated” cabin in the countryside that was near Gizzeria.
When they saw the woman, police noted that she had the demeanor of a “slave.” According to an Italian newspaper, the cabin was infested with mice and insects, it had no electricity or running water. It also had buckets that were being used for lavatories and the beds were made of cardboard.
According to this Italian paper, the woman’s two kids are aged 9 and 3 years of age. In addition, while the victim was pregnant, it was reported that she was not given any medical treatment. It also adds that no doctor ever treated any of the victim’s wounds that were inflicted on her during “daily” violence.
But this isn’t the first time Giordano has been accused of such a horrific crime. He was in prison in 1996 for kidnapping, raping and torturing another woman. But in 1999, he received an early release for good behavior, returning to his home to look after his terminally ill wife and two kids.
He then hired a 19-year-old Romanian carer to help him cope with his family duties. Police note that when his wife died, Giordano decided to lock the teen in the rat-infested room. Over the next ten years, the woman says she was tortured and chained to a metal bar. She was also denied water and electricity.
The two children were forced to watch as their mother suffered. According to news.com.au, the family members were freed by complete accident. Police pulled over Giordano for a routine traffic stop due to his car’s poor condition. He has been arrested on charges of aggravated assault and mistreatment. 22 years later, he was arrested in a horrifying similar case.
