Lucas Pisciotto, alias Luca Itvai, 21, a star on TikTok with more than 1.5 million subscribers, was stabbed to death by his mother's former partner, on Wednesday, February 2, in Liège, Belgium. As per reports, Luca's 44-year-old mother, Madeleine, was in a relationship with Pietro Randazzo for nine years. Not being able to bear the separation, Pietro went to meet Madeleine on Wednesday to confront her for moving on. The argument turned into violence as he tried to hit and strangle her.
When Luca arrived at the scene and attempted to save his mother, Pietro stabbed him in the throat and fled from the scene. The 22-year-old's body was discovered in Jupille, Belgium. A few hours after fleeing, Pietro went to the Belgian police and turned himself in. Pietro has been in police custody and has admitted to the crime in front of the police officers. Madeleine suffered minor injuries and is reportedly being treated for it. Many famous stars from TikTok have recently died. Gabriel Salazar, or Gabe as he was known online, was a TikTok influencer with more than 1.3 million followers.

Pietro has reportedly been known for violent acts in the past as well. Madeleine had previously filed a complaint against Pietro in 2013 due to his violent behavior. "A case which, given the lesser gravity of the facts, had been closed without further action," said Renaud Xhonous, the first deputy of the King's prosecutor. According to Madeleine, Pietro came to her home with the intention of killing her and committing suicide. "Pietro fled in a Fiat 500 Abarth after killing Luca, before surrendering to the police on Wednesday evening," reports 7 Sur 7.
"He strangled his ex-girlfriend, but she managed to escape to take refuge with relatives. She then warned her family, including her son, who came to make sure that his mother was well," concluded Xhonous. Pietro stabbed Luca five times, four of which hit him in the thoracic region, ranging from the neck to the upper thighs. Pietro will be presented before an investigating judge. The charges against him are: homicide and attempted homicide.
