The body of a man "in an advanced stage of decomposition" and apparently killed by a rifle shot to the head, found in a side road near the station in a small town not far from Rome, has been identified as the father-in-law of Daniele de Rossi. Apparently, he had minor previous convictions, and had already survived one attempt on his life. Investigations are being carried out by an organised crime unit, with the implication that there are some kind of mafia (or more likely Camorra, in southern Lazio) links.
This is very odd. Not to be flippant, but this is clearly a better grade of WAG-related scandal than you get in England, where disappointingly few fathers in law of Premier League stars appear to be petty criminals caught up and out of their depth in major criminal gangs. Though of course de Rossi himself is from Ostia, a deeply unsavoury town once you stray away from the beach (and possibly even there), and centre of the Roman drugs trade. Er. Anyway. Condolences to all involved etc.
