Salvatore Scoppa targeted by police in murder investigation

Salvatore Scoppa, a figurehead of the Montreal mafia, is suspected of knowing much about the double murder of Daniel Pierre and Mohamed Qazi Ali, two men also linked to organized crime. The two men disappeared in Blainville on September 25 and 26, 2013. Police believe they were liquidated by the mafia.
Police now believe their bodies were cut to pieces and they will never be found, but now they know who committed the crime and who commissioned it. It is for this reason that Scoppa and his entourage have been targeted by a series of searches in recent months. The home of Scoppa was visited by investigators on January 17th.

A member of an organization that sold cocaine on behalf of the Scoppa organization decided to work for the police. The informer is alleged to have witnessed the double murder of Pierre, 45, and Qazi Ali, 30. The narco-trafficker began to panic at the end of September 2016. He had taken refuge in Mexico with his wife, fearing for his life because the organization of Scoppa was seeking revenge for the disappearance of five kilos of cocaine. (worth $ 250,000+)

Leonardo Rizzuto and Stefano Sollecito
The informer decided to call the Sûreté du Québec saying that he was ready to "sell" Scoppa, who was then working under orders of Stefano Sollecito. When the couple returned to Quebec on October 30, 2016, heavily armed police from the Sûreté du Québec were waiting for them. The informer has changed his identity and is kept by the Witness Protection Service and monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week by police. No charges have been laid against Scoppa at this time.
