The mafia boss was found working as a pizzeria after 16 years on the run
Italian police have arrested another fugitive mobster, just two weeks after the sensational Jan. 16 arrest of Sicilian Cosa Nostra boss Matteo Messina Denaro at a health clinic in Palermo, Sicily.
This time it was Edgardo Greco, 63, who was caught in Saint-Etienne, France, where he worked under the alias Paolo Dimitrio as a pizzeria.
Greco, linked to the Calabrian 'Ndrangheta, was convicted in absentia in 1991 of the double murder of brothers Stefano and Giuseppe Bartolomeo, whom he allegedly bludgeoned to death with iron bars before disintegrating their bodies in acid , according to court documents.
Described as a "dangerous fugitive" by Nicola Gratteri, the anti-mafia prosecutor who led the investigation, Greco was also convicted of the attempted murder of several prison officials, earning him the nickname "the prison killer."
