(ANSA) – Turin, August 10 – An autopsy on a 45-year-old schizophrenic man who died after being forcibly hospitalized last week showed he was not strangled, sources said Monday.

Andrea Soldi, 45, died after being forced onto an ambulance and taken to hospital for mandatory treatment.

Turin prosecutors placed three traffic cops and a psychiatrist under investigation in connection with the death.

The patient’s family said Soldi’s body showed “clear signs of thoracic compression”.
