The area around the apartment shared by De Santis, 33, and Manta, 30, is covered by CCTV which will provide key evidence for police, although early witness statements suggest that the perpetrator concealed their face.

De Santis began refereeing professionally in 2017, making his Serie B debut as the fourth official for a clash between Pisa and Benevento that same year.
