A certain boy whose father is a Mafia Boss has killed his friend for just liking his girlfriend’s photo on Facebook.
Francesco Prestia, 19, victim of the murder after three bullets fired into his chest and left dead in an Olive field in Mileto, Italy.
15-year-old Alex Pititto, the son of ‘Ndrangheta mafia boss Salvatore Pititto, aka‘El Tio’, or the Uncle, was mentioned by Italian media as being responsible for the murder.
Pititto, according to media reports saw the “Like” as a form of disrespect.
Also, reports gathered that he turned himself to the police and later led them to the Olive field where his friend’s body was laid.
The Italian media also reported that the young gangster had been in long suspicion that his friend had a thing for his girlfriend.
After he noticed that Francesco had “liked” a new photo uploaded by his girlfriend, he called him for a meet up in a remote location where he shot him dead, as reported.
Pititto, had recently uploaded a photo of himself and his friend on Facebook and captioned it: “Friendship is something in the mouth of everybody but in the heart of not too many people.”
“You were so perfect that angels wanted you with them. We miss you a lot. Travel well, prince.” a message posted by Francesco’s family on his Facebook page.
Pititto’s family is one of the lynchpins of Italian organized crime.
The family members were arrested in January in a police anti-mafia operation called Stammer, his father Salvatore 49, Maria Antonia Messiano, his brother and his cousin included.
Italian Mafia experts say that a new, young, and deadly generation of teenage ‘baby bosses’ are making organized crime even more lethal.
Mafia author Roberto Saviano said the new generation have no fear of being caught and are quicker to kill than the old crime clans.
He said: “They are young and have their whole lives ahead of them. For them, it’s the same.”
