SAN GUSMÉ— A 49-year-old woman is dead, as Italian prosecutors continue leading the world in kangaroo investigations into post-injection deaths.

Ms. Valentina Bencini received her first Moderna mRNA injection on Thursday afternoon, July 5, in the town of Montevarchi, according to Italy 24 News. She sent two voice messages to a friend that day telling them about her injections. Ms. Bencini returned to her home in San Gusmè thereafter.

Several people sounded the alarm, including Ms. Bencini’s mother the next day, when nobody could get a hold of her. Ms. Bencini was not answering her phone or responding to social media messages. Her mother asked Ms. Bencini’s ex-boyfriend to go check on her since he still had the key to her home. He found her lifeless body in one of the bedrooms.

Authorities said there were no signs of forced entry, blunt force, or foul play in the home. Ms. Bencini had been dead for several hours when police arrived. Medical examiners determined that Ms. Bencini died about 12 hours after the Moderna injection.

Another phony investigation

We cover post-injection deaths and adverse reaction stories across the globe. But Italy has the dubious distinction of announcing “investigations” that are either predetermined or never reach resolutions at all. Ms. Bencini is no exception.

Siena prosecutor Valentina Magnini is conducting a so-called investigation to determine if the Moderna injection killed Ms. Bencini.

But it is not a criminal investigation as she preliminarily suspects Ms. Bencini died of natural causes. Magnini said the investigation will take no more than 90 days after the autopsy. The family hired attorney Fabio Cappelletti to help them navigate the process of learning what happened to their loved one.

Professor Marco di Paolo performed the autopsy on July 19. The family hired Dr. Mario Valgimigli to be present at the autopsy and ensure transparency. But Cappelletti told on Monday that investigations are still in progress, two months after the autopsy. There were apparently more tests performed on Ms. Bencini’s heart on September 7 that are causing the delays. It’s the same song and dance Italy prosecutors perform for all post-injections death.

Ms. Anna Biafora died four weeks after the AstraZeneca viral vector DNA injection. Crotone Deputy Prosecutor Pasquale Festa opened a manslaughter investigation. The autopsy was performed on July 5, but prosecutors said the results won’t be known until October. Belluno Deputy Prosecutor Alberto Primavera opened a manslaughter investigation after 18-year-old Davide Bristot died 27 days after the Pfizer injection. But death by mRNA has already been ruled out.
