A SENSE OF LUXURY
Messina Denaro was well-known for his preference for high-end items like designer clothing and pricey eyewear. When he was caught, according to the police, he was sporting a watch worth 35,000 euros ($38,000).

According to judicial sources, police started looking into doctor Alfonso Tumbarello on suspicion that he helped the mafia boss by attending to Messina Denaro when she received anti-cancer therapy under a false name.
According to the reports, he named Andrea Bonafede, who owned the flat Messina Denaro was residing in and is also the subject of an investigation.
Messina Denaro, also known as “U Siccu” (The Skinny One), received 20 life sentences in absentia trials for his involvement in several mob killings.
Including the 1992 bombings that murdered anti-mafia prosecutors Paolo Borsellino and Giovanni Falcone.
Prosecutors said that Messina Denaro was healthy enough to serve time in a jail setting where he will continue receiving cancer treatment despite his sickness.
