Italian mafia killer Edgardo Greco arrested after 16 years on the run - BBC News

A convicted Italian mafia killer on the run since 2006 has been caught in France, having hidden in plain sight as a pizza chef for at least three years.

Edgardo Greco was part of the ‘Ndrangheta organised crime mob who originate from the Calabria region in Italy’s deep south.

Greco, 63, was wanted for the murder of two brothers during a “mafia war” between two gangs in the early 1990s.

He went on to take on a new identity, calling himself Paolo Dimitrio, settling in the French city of Saint-Étienne and taking the job of pizzaiolo in an Italian restaurant.

Since 2019, investigators had traced Greco’s support network, which ultimately led them across the Alps to Saint-Étienne.
