The information, despite De Bonis using fake profiles, was used to expand their investigation, Italian authorities contacting the Interpol office in San Jose,

“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 is also linked to another incident in 2011 when a young Italian woman was arrested at the Newark, New Jersey, airport carrying 500 grams of cocaine in a suitcase.
