Italian Mafia hitman serving a life sentence admitted to committing three more unsolved murders as part of his sociology degree course, which is a shocking revelation from Catello Romano.
Thirty-three-year-old Catello Romano received accolades for his 170-page university thesis which recounts his crime life as a member of the Neapolitan Camorra organized crime syndicate known for various illicit activities.
Romano’s professors lauded his work, but prosecutors are scrutinizing the document and preparing to reopen the cases of the three unsolved murders, according to El Pais.
Intriguingly, Romano has been moved to a maximum-security prison in Padua for his own protection.
Romano was sentenced to life in prison for the 2009 murder of Luigi Tommasino, a Neapolitan city councilor who was shot dead with his 13-year-old son in the backseat.
Romano also confessed to his first two murders in 2008, those of Carmine D’Antuono and Federico Donnarumma.
Romano describes the killings as the most violent, traumatic, and irreversible events of his life.
He also admitted to killing Nunzio Mascolo and wrote about his suspicion that Mascolo had done nothing to deserve death.
Professor Charlie Barnao described Romano as a brilliant student, who has excelled in his studies.
