The young man was reportedly beaten to death by an Italian man, Fermana Amedeo Mancini, on Tuesday, July 4, while in a park with his fiancee. Mancini, who is said to be a known racist, had taunted Chidi and his girlfriend by calling them 'African Monkeys' and had made advances to assault the lady when the deceased rose to defend her.
