Mushroom hunter's headless body found in woodland

IANS 

Genoa (Italy), Oct 13 (IANS/AKI) The decapitated body of a man in Italy, who went missing while gathering mushrooms, has been found in woods.

Sixty-eight-year-old Albano Crocco's headless body was found on Wednesday in Liguria's scenic Val Fontanabuona valley with gunshot wounds to the neck not far from his house in the village of Lumarzo.

Crocco's wife and daughter raised the alarm when he failed to return home on Tuesday evening.

He was fired on from behind at close range, probably with a hunting rifle and his head was cut off with a large blade, according to pathologists.

Sniffer dogs were reported to be searching for the missing head and police were questioning Crocco's family and friends.
