Default Define irony - 'World peace' hitcher is murdered

'World peace' hitcher is murdered'


An Italian woman artist who was hitch-hiking to the Middle East dressed as a bride to promote world peace has been found murdered in Turkey.

The naked body of Giuseppina Pasqualino di Marineo, 33, known as Pippa Bacca, was found in bushes near the northern city of Gebze on Friday.

She had said she wanted to show that she could put her trust in the kindness of local people.

Turkish police say they have detained a man in connection with the killing.

Reports say the man led the police to the body.

Autopsy

Ms di Marineo was hitch-hiking from Milan to Israel and the Palestinian Territories with a fellow artist on their "Brides on Tour" project.

They had separated in Istanbul, planning to reunite in Beirut.

Ms di Marineo was last seen on 31 March in Gebze.

An Italian embassy official told the Associated Press news agency police tracked the man when he put a new SIM card into Ms di Marineo's mobile phone.

Local media identified the suspect only by the initials MK and said he had a previous conviction for theft.

Ms di Marineo's sister, who had gone to Turkey to look for her, identified the body. An autopsy is being conducted in Istanbul.

"Her travels were for an artistic performance and to give a message of peace and of trust, but not everyone deserves trust," another sister, Maria, told the Italian news agency, Ansa.

I agree. This was a terrible but if someone wants to gamble with their life there isn't much you can do. See Grizzly Man.

I barely have any remorse for these people. You mess with fire, you're going to get burned.

There is nothing ironic about a 33 year old woman hitchhiking across Europe by herself getting raped and murdered, regardless of what cause she was promoting. Why is it that 99.99% of people cannot use the term "irony" correctly?

The irony was that she was campaigning for world peace and proving that she could trust the locals as she hitchhiked, dummy.

I see many of us on the Mane have travelled the Earth a great deal. Just about every place I go has a negative image, or bad press in the US. When I get there and interact with locals I find its never at all like what I had heard before.
This idea is what she was trying to prove, but damn, a female hitching alone in Turkey of all places? Unless she was some sort of kung fu genius...

99.9% of people out there are probably good people. Unfortunately, that .1 % can negate all the good people in the world. A whole population can make you feel welcome and one guy can leave you in the bushes. If she's trying to hitchhike around the world by herself she's a damn fool. I wouldn't hitchhike across the US, definitely wont do it in the middle east.

As a young man I hitched across the States. I had some great experiences and a few scary ones, one very scary one. i would not do that in today's world though.

It took a great deal of conviction and trust in her fellow man to do this. Clearly, rather wise or unwise, she was far more courageous than all you smug, non risk taking wimps that are laughing at her. Some of you people are just flat out embarrassing as human beings. What ever happened to compassion?

Sad. Like when a clown cries.


We live in a violent world, and people should realize that. I think that the world should be safer, but I know to protect my family and myself from these psycho's

Look I'm not saying what she did was smart I'm acknowledging her courage. Would you have the balls to hitch hike wearing a wedding dress in Turkey. Didn't think so..

But there is the common sense factor that must come into play.

Bad choice? Yes but that does not diminish her bravery.

Have you never heard the phrase "there's a fine line between bravery and stupidity"?



If I go out and swim unprotected with sharks to show that we can live at one with the environment... and they eat my ass, was I brave or just stupid? I vote stupid.



And I said 99.9% are good people to concede an exaggeration to the guy who said everyone he's met has been a good person. There's definitely a group of people that are not very trustworthy and anyone from the west that would go for a second unprotected into the middle east is intentionally swimming with the sharks.



And I have all the compassion in the world for people when bad things happen. But think of what this girl just did to her family by being dumb enough to go unprotected into such an environment. She's a damn fool, she put her family through an outrageous amount of unnecessary heartache... so she should be ridiculed as a damn fool. When you praise these people as brave souls, embarking on a mission to save humanity blah blah blah... all you end up with is more attention seeking morons who will attempt similar acts in the name of art, world peace, [Insert other hippie value], etc...



In the end, it's survival of the fittest and this girl just removed herself from the gene pool. Dawinism-1, Stupid crazy hippies - 0
