Ashley Olsen, an American woman living in Florence, was found dead in her apartment on Saturday afternoon, reportedly with bruises on her neck. The 35-year-old Olsen was originally from Florida and had lived in Florence, where her father teaches at an American school, for several years. The 35-year-old woman was reportedly affiliated with the art world in Florence and her boyfriend, a painter, is said to have alerted authorities that he had not heard from her since the two argued three days earlier. Florence officials will conduct an autopsy and have sequestered her computer to check her last messages.
