Beau Solomon Killed by 40 Year-old Homeless Man in Italy? ~by Legal Pub

Justice can be swift in Italy.  But is it always just?  Massimo
Galioto, a 40 year-old homeless Italian man, was detained on Tuesday on suspicion of murdering 19-year-old Beau Solomon. While this is potentially a swift response to a genuine fear of American's traveling abroad, is Galioto really the killer? 
To be clear, Massimo Galioto, is only being held for questioning concerning a suspicion of aggravated homicide.   Solomon, from Wisconsin, was found dead tangled in vegetation in the Tiber River three days after he went missing. The 19 year old student was suppose to start a study program at John Cabot University, in the central Trastevere district.

Solomon had apparently been drinking Thursday night and was last seen leaving a pub early Friday morning. A check of Solomon's credit card revealed that several hundred dollars of unauthorized charges had been made in a city several hundred miles away.  Such credit card activity seems unlikely to be attributed to a homeless man.  

So what will the questioning reveal?  Will there be a short but real answer to the "who done it" or will Italian law enforcement sweep this matter under the rug?

Massimo Galioto is to be presumed innocent unless otherwise proven in a court of law.
