Notorious Mafia Hitman Captured WHERE?!?

Edgardo Greco

( – A notorious Italian Mafia hitman, who was known for dissolving his victims in acid, was finally captured after being on the run for 16 years.

Edgardo Greco, a 63-year-old convicted murderer with ties to Italy’s most powerful organized crime syndicate, the Calabrian ‘Ndrangheta, was arrested while working as a pizza maker in a French restaurant in Saint Etienne, France.

Greco was known as Paolo Dimitrio in France, and was recognized by his patrons as “Rocco”.

He had been living in France for the past three years under an assumed name.

Interpol and Italian police were able to apprehend Greco after investigations by Italian prosecutors and police.

Greco was convicted in two homicides in 1991, and was accused of attempted murder in another case, which involved a rival mob boss who was stabbed inside a jail.

He was part of a “mafia war” between the Pino Sena and Perna Pranno clans in Italy in the early 1990s.

After a warrant was issued for his arrest as part of a Mafia trial in 2006, Greco vanished and was eventually convicted in absentia and sentenced to life in prison.

However, in 2021, he was featured in an article in the French newspaper Le Progres, in which he bragged about his “100% fresh and homemade” Italian dishes.

The article, which featured a photo of a beaming Greco, led to his capture by Interpol.

Interpol Chief Jurgen Stock stated that “no matter how hard fugitives try to slip into a quiet life abroad, they cannot evade justice forever”.

Italy’s Interior Minister Matteo Piantedosi praised Greco’s arrest, emphasizing the country’s commitment to fighting organized crime and locating dangerous fugitives.

The ‘Ndrangheta, which is based in the “toe” of the Italian peninsula, is one of the world’s largest and most powerful cocaine traffickers and is considered a major threat among organized crime syndicates. In recent years, ‘Ndrangheta mobsters have been arrested in various countries, including Europe and Brazil.
