ROME – A priest’s leading exorcist of the Roman Catholic Church said, a teenage girl missing in Rome 30 years ago kidnapped by a gang for sex party involving the Vatican police and foreign diplomats. Girl’s whereabouts or motive for her abduction has been a mystery unsolved.
Father Gabriele Amorth, who appointed by the late Pope John Paul II as the Vatican’s chief exorcist, and claims to have done thousands of exorcisms, said Emanuela Orlandi, the name of the missing girl, then killed and his body disposed of. In the latest development of the unexpected mysteries of the Holy See one of the unsolved, he said the 15-year-old girl was abducted from the streets of central Rome in the summer of 1983 and forced to engage in an orgy.
“This is a sexually motivated crime. Parties were organized, with a Vatican police act as ‘recruiters’ women. Network involves diplomatic personnel of a foreign embassy to the Holy See. I believe Emanuela become victims of this circle,” said Father Amorth, Honorary President of the International Association of expulsion of Satan, as reported by the Italian daily, La Stampa, Tuesday (22/05/2012).
The debate about who kidnapped Emanuela and what happened to her has been going on in Italy over the past three decades. There are allegations brought her notorious outlaw gang leader, who wanted to put pressure on Vatican officials to return the money he is alleged to have lent to them. The teenager’s parents are employees of the Vatican.
Another theory states, the poor girl was kidnapped to be used in exchange for the release of Mehmet Ali Agca from prison. Ali Agca is a Turkish man who tried to kill Pope John Paul II in St. Peter’s Square in 1981. The man was said to be the agents of the KGB, Soviet intelligence.
However, Father Amorth (85) rejected the “international dimension” in that case. He said, an expert on the Vatican archives also have come to the conclusion that Emanuela abducted for sexual exploitation.
Father Amorth is a controversial priest and outspoken. He had sparked controversy when he said that the Harry Potter books is dangerous because the books encourage children to believe in black magic and witchcraft.
Earlier this month, investigators dismantle the tomb of Enrico “Renatino” De pedis, a gang leader, in order to prove the old claim that the body were buried with the corpse Emanuela together with mafioso leader. They found the body of Enrico in the tomb in the Basilica of Sant Apollinare in Rome and wanted to investigate the bones in the other graves nearby. Investigators said the unidentified bones were probably derived from the early 19th century, but the bones were being analyzed by forensic experts to see if any of them may belong to Emanuela.
In 2005, an anonymous caller on crime programs on TV Italian states, the key to uncovering the kidnapping schoolgirl lies in the tomb of the mafioso, who was gunned down members of rival gangsters in 1990.
