Reason for the insane act: The residents accused Giorgio Scanu of having killed the homeless Juan de Dios Flores († 74) because he is said to have felled a tree on the Italian’s property.

The angry crowd tortured Giorgio Scanu with stones and sticks until he died. The lynch mob then burned the victim’s house and car.
