Vito Roberto Palazzolo, convicted in absentia by an Italian court in 2009 for laundering money for "boss of bosses" Toto Riina and Bernardo Provenzano from Cosa Nostra or the Sicilian Mafia, will be will be extradited from Thailand following his arrest in Bangkok earlier this year after a long international chase to apprehend him as reported by International Business Times.
Palazzolo was found from clues he and his relatives left on their Facebook profiles as reported by Alessio Fratticcioli for the Digital Journal.
The money man previously was implicated in the so-called Pizza Connection case in which the Mafia distributed $1.6 billion of heroin smuggled from Italy through NYC pizzerias between 1975 and 1984 as reported by BBC News.
Drugs, drugs, drugs. At the end of the day it's always about drugs, and don't buy the Mafia party line that it's not involved with drugs.
