Pusher probed for overdose death of SARS hero’s daughter

(ANSA) – ROME, MAR 29 – A Syrian drug pusher has been placed
under investigation in the overdose death on Saturday of the
daughter of SARS hero doctor Carlo Urbani, judicial sources said
Monday.
    Marche-born Urbani, who died of SARS in Bangkok in 2003 aged 46,
was a microbiologist who first identified the severe acute
respiratory syndrome as a new and dangerously contagious viral
disease, and his early warning to the World Health Organization
(WHO) triggered a swift and global response credited with saving
numerous lives.
    His daughter Maddalena, 21, was found dead in a Rome apartment
on Saturday, the apparent victim of a heroin overdose.
    An autopsy will take place Tuesday.
    The pusher, who was arrested for possession on Sunday, has been
placed under investigation on charges of “causing a death as a
consequence of another crime”. (ANSA).
