8-Year-Old Boy Strangled To Death By His Own Mother

8-Year-Old Boy Strangled To Death By His Own Mother

Veronica Panarello, the Loris's mother, apparently strangled his son to death with electrical cables and then proceeded to throw the child's lifeless body in a ditch near their home.

While children depend on their parents for love, safety, and security, the bond that mothers have with their children is undeniable. But for 8-year-old Loris Stival, his life was cut short by the same person who brought him into this world.

He caught her having sex with his grandfather

Veronica Panarello,  Loris’s mother, apparently strangled her son to death with electrical cables and then proceeded to throw the child’s lifeless body in a ditch near their home.

Loris walked in on his mother and grandfather having sex, which prompted her to kill her son. After killing him, she went to police and told them that she took him to school early in the morning, and he wasn’t there when she came back to pick him up in the afternoon.

CCTV footage showed that she did not even drop him off to school that day, and was then considered a suspect by the police. Eventually, she was found guilty of murder and concealing a body, charges that she vehemently denied even if the sentence had already been passed.

An ‘egocentric, manipulative liar’

Prosecutors during the trial called her an ‘egocentric, manipulative liar.’

She initially blamed the boy’s grandfather, Andrea Stival for the child’s murder. She then told the court that he helped in planning the child’s murder because he caught them having sex.

Stival has denied these claims and has threatened to sue his daughter-in-law for slander. Police are also investigating the boy’s grandfather as an accessory to murder.

Veronica’s husband has now filed for divorce.

Building trust in your family

Trust is a very important part of any family. You need to be able to trust anyone in your family, and in turn, they should be able to trust you implicitly. Here are some things that you can do in order to build trust in your family:

  1. Always be open and honest to your family. Being open and honest is always the first step in gaining trust. Practice openness in your family, and you will soon learn to trust each other.
  2. Consistency is key. As in most things, consistency is key, especially when it comes to building trust. Consistently showing that you are someone to be trusted is very important.
  3. Always be there for your family. You should be someone that your family can lean to whenever they have problems. They should feel comfortable in sharing any positive or negative experiences that they have. This is one way of making the trust in your family stronger.
  4. Learn how to say sorry. Saying sorry is really hard to do. It involves humility and accepting that you do make some mistakes. If you know when to say sorry, then it makes your family feel that you’re someone who can accept their own faults and someone to be trusted.
