In an underground cave of some 40 metres deep in the Sicilian village of Roccamena, near Corleone, the human remains have been found of at least ten adults and two children between the ages of 12 and 14 years old. Reported that the Italian media Saturday.

Presumably, the bodies there, dumped between the sixties and eighties of the last century. Probably tried the emerging maffiaclan from Corleone, as certain persons to make them disappear. The authorities seek the identity of the victims to find out.

The mass grave was in October 2016, discovered after a tip. That happened after the death of Bartolomeo Cascio, the main boss of Roccamena and accomplice of Totò Riina. Cascio died this summer in his house in Roccamena, where he returned after his imprisonment because of its gangster activity.
