Murdered inhabitant of Rijswijk appears to be nuclear physicist Monday december 28 2009 11:59
The 54 year old man that was found dead on thursday in his flat on the Mayor Elsenlane in Rijswijk ( near The Hague ) appears to be a renowed nuclear physicist. The Italian engineer Antonio Ferrigno was brutally murdered. A spokesperson of the Hague PD confirmed Ferrigno’s identity on monday.
According to the Italian media he was a researcher at the patent bureau that is located in Rijswijk . He did groundbreaking work in the technological development of the pacemaker. Ferrigno was found at noon on thursday the 24th by members of his family, with his hands tied and lying in a big pool of blood, according to “De Telegraaf”
At the moment the detectives are looking specifically for witnesses who walked past the house of the victim that day between 04h00 and 06h00 in the morning and who may have seen something suspicious. According to eye witnesses the Italian got very few visitors other than his daughter and from time to time a woman of Antillian descent ( probably his ex-wife) Lately he had received threatening phone calls, the reason for the threats is unknown.

I had a thread earlier about the "Murder of Antonio Ferrigno" in the week. Guess it got lost in the fray.
Does anyone want to get together at some point and create a 2009 assassinated/mysterious-death thread? We simply need to organize all of the scientists by field of study, date/time of death and perhaps a blurb about their affiliations. I have a feeling that things will start to piece together naturally.
