Cosimo Di Lauro, top Camorra boss dies in jail

Cosimo Di Lauro, 48, who was sentenced to life in Opera prison in Milan, was said to be one of the most ruthless and cold-hearted bosses in the Camorra mafia. The group is based in Naples. The crime boss, who was found dead in his cell, was the son of infamous mafioso Paolo Di Lauro, who is serving a 30-year sentence for drug trafficking. A split in the Camorra family took place after Cosimo took over from his father, leading to a war between clans that took over 150 lives.
"He died as a wretch. Yet he was very rich. May God have mercy on you and on your wicked life."

Cosimo is said to have inspired the hit series Gomorrah, which ended last year after five seasons.
