Wall of silence

Lamaj Astrid, 41 and an Albanian citizen, disappeared without trace in Italy in 2013. Now he’s turned up – inside a concrete pillar in a village near Milan. The body would probably never have been discovered but for the fact that the villa is undergoing renovation.

Four alleged killers, linked to a mafia family, have been arrested in Sicily. It is believed that they killed Astrid at the behest of a woman who he jilted and from whom he stole jewellery.
