The agonizing girlfriend of the Columbia University grad student stabbed to death near campus told The Post on Friday how the pair had inspiring optimistic plans for a bright future together.
“We had a long story, and we had plans for a life together soon after the end of his PhD in the beginning of next year,”
said Ana Gonzalez, who was in a serious relationship with violently killed Davide Giri, 30.
“He was a kind and loving person,”
Gonzalez said of her beau, who was murdered in an clearly visible random attack by a reported gang member in Morning-side Park in Manhattan late Thursday.
“We are together,”
she added, sliding unintentionally into the present tense, relating to her and Giri.
“As you may understand, I do not feel like speaking about this at the moment.”
Giri, computer science PhD candidate from Italy, was stabbed in the stomach, police and friends said Friday.
He had been strolling back to his Morning-side Heights
flat around 11 p.m. following soccer practice with his team when the attacker fatally knifed him, wounded a tourist and intimidated another man near West 123rd Street and Amsterdam Avenue, as stated by cops.
Giri staggered out of the park, broke down completely and was later announced dead at Mount Sinai-Saint Luke’s Hospital.
He was chronicle by a friend as a friendly and eager to learn person and a
in his northern Italy hometown, known for doing charity work with a local church.
