In 1823, The Hyena of San Giorgio began to make itself known to the police. His first crime consisted of the theft of ten candles from the Confraternity of Santa Marta and some objects from the parish church. But, immediately afterwards, he also tries to rape a sixteen-year-old, Teresa Pignocco. He holds the girl prisoner, in her house, for six days, until the police arrest him. They sentence him to eight years in prison.
He is December 15, 1823. </ P>

The Hyena of San Giorgio was released from prison on 13 December 1831 for good behavior. He meets Domenica Nigra, a 24-year-old widow. With her he has a daughter, Margherita, born a couple of years later. Giorgio tries to lead a normal life. He opens a shop and works as a “cutter and sausage maker”. Unfortunately, the earnings that come from this activity are not as hoped. </ P>

On February 14, 1834, the Hyena of San Giorgio killed a ten-year-old girl after raping her.
At the end of the brutal murder, he abandons Caterina Scavarda’s body in the countryside of San Giorgio Canavese.
A few months later, on June 24, he also rapes and kills nine-year-old Caterina Givogre.
He beheads the little girl’s body and throws her remains into the Piatonia stream.
Search teams are immediately organized to find the two missing girls, but no one is able to recover the bodies.
In the end, the responsibility is attributed to the packs of wolves that infest the area.
Perhaps this fact convinces La Iena di San Giorgio to continue with his crazy and bloody purpose.
On March 3, 1835, he convinced a 14-year-old girl, Francesca Tondo, to follow him to her house with the promise of wanting to buy some eggs.
The young woman meets the same tragic fate as the two previous victims: she is raped and killed.
Giorgio Orsolano cuts her body to pieces with a cleaver, closes it in a jute bag and buries it in the Piatonia stream. </ P>

During his last crime, the victim’s aunt sees Orsolano talking with Francesca.
This happens shortly before her disappearance.
The relatives, after having reported the disappearance of the little girl, go to her house to ask her some questions.
Giorgio Orsolano’s reaction, however, is violent.
He abruptly kicks out his uncles and this only directs the police investigation even further towards him.
Also because his previous attempted rape against Teresa Pignocco is known.
The officers search her home and find Francesca’s clogs, along with shreds of clothing and bloodstains.
The Hyena of San Giorgio attempts to escape but is blocked and taken to the castle of Ivrea.
He is taken away from the mob that wanted to lynch him.


To obtain a confession, the police are forced to get him drunk, taking advantage of his passion for wine.
When sober, in fact, he continues to deny any involvement or responsibility.
Giorgio Orsolano tells everything like this, also because an officer assures him that if he had confessed and declared himself insane, he would have avoided the death penalty.
