Memorial for Nicole

Memorial for Nicole Piacentini, victim of the ‘Kensington Strangler’, corner of Jasper and Cumberland Street, 2013.

During the winter of 2010, three women were found raped and strangled to death in Kensington, Philadelphia. The local media dubbed the suspect the ‘Kensington Strangler.’ Within days, Antonio Rodriguez, 21, was taken into custody after someone phoned in a tip. In 2012, Rodriguez was convicted on all accounts and sentenced to 3 life terms in prison. Three years after her death, Nicole’s memorial remained in place.
