Son of mafia boss killed during Naples street celebration

Vincenzo Costanzo, 26, was gunned down during delirious celebrations by football fans in Naples, after the city’s team won its first Serie A title in 33 years. He was the son of Maurizio Costanzo, a leading member of the D’Amico Camorra clan, the Neapolitan mafia in Ponticelli, where a feud among clans is ongoing. Most suspect the murder is linked to a war for control of the eastern part of Naples. It was probably a settling of scores that took advantage of the party to strike.

The late Diego Maradona was Napoli’s star player when the city won its last Scudetto in 1990.
