Lilia was playing with a hula hoop and a doll’s stroller with her 5-year-old sister in front of the bar where their mother works when she was attacked and killed by a man.
For her it was a quiet and carefree summer afternoon to spend playing in the quiet streets of the city but just at that moment the nightmare presented itself in front of her in the shape of a man who attacked and stabbed her in only 9 years before the terrified eyes of the 5-year-old sister.
According to what has been reconstructed so far, Lilia was playing with the hula hoop and a doll’s stroller with her 5-year-old sister between the sidewalk and the street in front of the bar where their mother works. With the schools closed and nothing to do, the woman had in fact brought the little ones with them, keeping them in sight from inside the room
Everything seems as quiet as ever on that small street near the historic church of St Botolph when a man approached the little ones and attacked the older one, leaving her lifeless in a pool of blood on the sidewalk.
The subsequent intervention of medical help, who rushed to the scene after the emergency call of the same mother, the first to rush to the scene after the stabbing, was useless for the little girl. Doctors tried to resuscitate her but had to declare her death on the spot shortly after.
“The little girl was playing on the street with her younger sister when it happened. They had toys outside. It’s a quiet street, so her mother let them play outside. I’m sure she was checking them from inside because she always did. She was a very quiet girl, and I just can’t understand how it could have happened, “a witness told the Telegraph.
Investigators in the evening arrested two people in connection with the murder of the child, after breaking into a house in Boston, but the police have not released further details.
