“The fugitive was identified because of some pictures of places in the Caribbean sea where he took refuge. They were published on Facebook and found by investigators. Is accused of homicide and international drug trafficking,” reported the Italian media.


While hiding in Costa Rica, authorities believe he had remained in contact with Italian groups dedicated to drug trafficking.

De Bonis will be deported in the coming days.
