absconding since the age of 30
Messina Denaro was young when he fled. Today he is 60 years old. Messina Denaro, who dominated the port city of Trapani in western Sicily, was considered Sicily’s top mafia kingpin despite being a fugitive. Messina Denaro, who had eluded the police for decades, was the last of the top three fugitives on the long run who were yet to be caught by the law.
Denaro was tried in absentia and Messina Denaro was sentenced to several life sentences, convicted of dozens of murders. Denaro carried out two bombings in Sicily in 1992, killing his opposition lawyers Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino. Hundreds of policemen were responsible for catching Denaro. Denaro’s treatment will now be done from jail only.

Investigators say that he had reached the clinic like a normal patient. However, when he reached the clinic, he was wearing a very expensive watch. The watch worn by the mafia boss is said to be worth around $33,000. When he was arrested, he did not protest.
