[Ed. note: Gangland executions getting more creative]
A screeching mafia kingpin was eaten alive by pigs in a sickening settling of gangland accounts, Italian police have revealed.
Francesco Raccosta vanished in March 2012, but his horrific fate only came to light after an underworld insider spilled the beans. Raccosta’s grisly end was part of a six-decade-long gang war and retaliation for the execution of rival mobster Domenico Bonarrigo.
According to the London Daily Telegraph, during a clandestine recording crime boss Simone Pepe, 24, boasted about Raccosta’s grim murder.
Pepe bragged that Raccosta screamed and begged for his life.
“It was satisfying to hear him scream … Mamma mia, how he squealed, but I couldn’t give a s**t,” Pepe said on the tape.
“Someone said a few bits of him remained at the end of it all, but I couldn’t see anything, for me nothing remained at all. I said, ‘Wow, how a pig can eat.’”
Italian prosecutors made the arrest after Pepe bragged about the murder. More than 20 suspects were arrested as part of the anti-mafia campaign, Operazione Erinni.
