The Former Parma Player Confessed to Kill his Mother and Younger Sister
Ever been one of Parma’s prospects, Solomon Nyantakyi is now potentially facing severe criminal penalties. Nyantakyi killed her mother and sister.
Nyantakyi had fled on Tuesday (11/7/2017) night Italy time, after killing his mother, Nfum Patience, and 11-year-old sister, Magdalene Nyantakyi, at his home in Parma.
The 21-year-old boy was caught after about 12 hours of escape. Police arrested him at Milan station on Wednesday (12/7), after successfully tracking him through security cameras around the station.
To the police he confessed to killing his mother and sister. The Sun reports that Nyantakyi stabbed them both to death, and his body was first discovered by his older brother, Raymond.
Nyantakyi had shown promising potential in Parma. He was several times summoned to the top squad in the 2014/2015 season under the direction of Roberto Donadoni. But his career then dims, especially with Parma’s bankruptcy in 2015.
Nyantakyi then had time to strengthen small teams like Tuttocuoio and Imolese. The report says that the Ghana passenger was depressed.
“I remember Solomon, he trained with us in Parma and I took him to sit on the bench more than once in Serie A matches. I remember he was very calm, even quiet, if he did this, I can not even think about what Which has already crossed his head, “Donadoni told Bleacherreport.
Former Parma coach Cristiano Lucarelli has admitted to seeing signs of depression from Nyantakyi. But he’s still surprised his former junior was doing so far.
“From his attitude on Parma’s youth team you can tell he has a problem but he never, I never say, raise his voice, argue with other people, or react improperly,” he said.
“I know he is suffering from depression and I try to take him to train with my team, Cuoiopelli, in Lega Pro, 125 miles from Parma, he stays with us for 15 days, then runs away.”
“He then came to me and said he missed his family, his friends, his house, I thought it was just a matter of nostalgia, I was absolutely dumbfounded,” Lucarelli said.
