Matthew Messina Money met Lorenza Alagna, the daughter he never recognized and officially until now he had never seen. The meeting, as reported by the newspaper La Repubblica, took place in the super prison of the Eagle where the boss of Castelvetrano has been imprisoned since the day following his arrest. Stopped last January 16 after 30 years on the run, ill with cancerMessina Denaro saw his 26-year-old daughter in an armored wing of the 41 bis.
For a lot of time the rumor had spread related to the fact that the boss’s daughter had renegade the father. A few days after the arrest, however, Lorenza Alagna’s lawyer had issued a note to deny this eventuality. According to Repubblica, in any case, the girl has never paid her respects to her father-boss and in recent years she has become a source of great concern for the mafia boss. In the Campobello di Mazara hideout, the carabinieri had found dozens of messages never sent by Messina Denaro to her daughter. One dated back to her seventeenth birthday: “Stay away from worlds you don’t know. I have entered other worlds at the price of suffering, but you never dare, please”.
In recent times, however, the godfather’s anguish had turned into anger against his daughter who at 17 had convinced the mother to leave the paternal grandmother’s house, a Castelvetrano. Referring to Martina Gentile, granddaughter of the old boss of Camponello Leonardo Bonafede, Messina Denaro wrote: “She is slightly older than Lorenza, therefore same generation, and they certainly know each other also because they went to the same high school in the same years. What I know about this girl: she is grew up with her motherthey will have had ‘misunderstandings‘ of course, but he studied, he did the scientific high school, then she graduated in architecture I think, and today she works using her degree. She was always engaged to the same guy a couple of years ago she got married to the same, and the last summer she had a baby girl. I told you her story because she did the obituary, but I could tell you the story of many with the absent father and of same generation, because I am informed of all those who are missing their father. Well, no one has gone the way of Lorenza, they are all fixed”. Then the boss of the massacres attacked her daughter: “It is the environment in which you grow up that shapes you, and she is grew up badly. The lack of a father is not in itself a reason for educational degeneration, it is only Lorenza who has degenerated to the lowest point, the others I know of have all grown honestly“.
