Cops make new identikit of last Mafia fugitive

Cops make new identikit of last Mafia fugitive

Giovanni 'Fatty' Motisi gets same treatment as Messina Denaro

ROME, 19 April 2024, 14:48

ANSA English Desk



Italian police have made a new identikit through progressive ageing techniques of Giovanni Motisi, the last great Cosa Nostra fugitive involved in the early 1990s bombing campaign that claimed the lives of prosecutors Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino in 1992 and ten others in bombs at art and religious sites in Rome, Florence and Milan in 1993.
    Motisi, 65, is also wanted in connection with the assassinations of politicians, police and prosecutors across Sicily earlier.
    The new identikit has been created using Age Progression on photos dating back to the 1980s and 1990s and found in Motisi's Palermo home.
    It is the same techniques used for the last fugitive superboss Matteo Messina Denaro aka Diabolik, caught after 30 years on the run in January 2023 and who died of cancer in a prison hospital last November at the age of 61.
    The publication of the new image of Motisi, nicknamed 'u pacchiuni' or Fatty and on the run since 1998, has been decided to try to close in on the boss, who is on Italy's most wanted list.
    Among other things, Motisi is wanted for the August 6 1985 murder of deputy police chief Ninni Cassarà, head of the Palermo flying squad's investigative division and one of the investigators most highly rated by Falcone, as well as agent Roberto Antiochia.
    Motisi was also part of the murder cupola led by the late Salvatore 'The Beast' Riina, before being demoted for an allegedly lax management of clan funds.
    Despite this demotion, he remained on the list of the 100 most wanted criminals in Italy.
