A mother allegedly stabbed her two-year-old son to death before his body was dumped at a checkout counter at a Liddell store.
Former Hungarian porn actress Catalin Erzabet Bradakis has been arrested and charged with the murder of her toll boss Alex Johaz.
The former nightclub dancer allegedly entered the Liddle store in Umbria, Italy, and screamed for help when she placed her son’s bloodied body on the checkout counter on October 1.
Tragically, the young man was pronounced dead – nine stab wounds to his body, chest and neck.
Her mother, 44, was arrested by police after a knife was found in her handbag.
Several items, including Alex’s blood-stained T-shirt, punctured through nine holes, and Braddock’s jumper were found later that night in an unused building nearby.
Police believe Braddox’s alleged crime is aimed at avenging the child’s father, with whom she is separated and arguing with Alex in custody.
Alex’s father, who lives in Hungary, warned authorities after he allegedly sent a picture of his dying son to his mobile phone via WhatsApp.
According to reports, the child’s mother had sent him her previous photo, which was sent shortly before the boy’s body was taken to the supermarket.
After his arrest, Bradyx was questioned, and he denied the allegations against him, allegedly repeatedly telling police: “I did not kill my son.”
He reportedly told police three conflicting versions of the incident before choosing to remain silent on the advice of his lawyer, Enrico Renzoni.
Bradyx was taken into custody at a prison in the nearby town of Perugia and was due to be questioned again this morning.
The unused building where the crime was allegedly committed was sealed off by police.
No more suspects were identified in the CCTV footage seen by police, and Braddox arrived on camera and left the scene.
The crime itself was not captured on camera, but the woman was filmed arriving and leaving the scene.
Bredaux lived in the Tuscan town of Chiosi Skalo, home to a man who now manages the closed nightclub he works for.
She also has an 18-year-old son, who lives in Hungary, and whose father has died.
According to the victim’s father, Norbert Johaz, Bradyx fled to Italy with the boy last month after a Hungarian court extradited the young man’s father.
An investigation is underway.
