Coroner's officials work at the scene; According to her friend Riffel, fame took a backseat to parenthood in Nesci's universe. "I think there was part of Loredana that enjoyed being a minor celebrity but that was just a hobby -- Rocco was her life -- that's the way she would want to be remembered. Everything was for him."
