“How much is life, the serenity of a person, more or less than 500 thousand euros?” Asks Salvatore, son of Gaetano Scutellaro, the man found in Fiumicino by the police, ready to leave for the Canary Islands after opening a current account in which to merge the winnings of 500 thousand euros of a Scratch and Win.
Scutellaro is not the owner of the Naples retailer where the Scratch and Win was sold, but for everyone it has become “the tobacconist”. According to the complaint of an elderly lady who claims to have bought the winning ticket, the man – who claimed to be the ex-husband of the shop owner – allegedly stole the ticket and then fled.
He had a ticket ready for Fuerteventura. Now he is in the prison of Santa Maria Capua Vetere as a suspect by the Naples Public Prosecutor’s Office of the crimes of pluri-aggravated theft and attempted extortion. The son works instead in the bar next to the retailer who hit the headlines on Sunday evening.
To Fanpage he says: “We have nothing to do with it”. He would like, together with his family, to be able to work and recover the lost serenity, but it is difficult, because in the city and in the media we only talk about them. A fury for which he does not understand the reason and which has also overwhelmed his children.
Given and considering that even this morning the newspapers put words that do not belong to us in our mouths, they want us to say things that are not truthful, between questions and interviews, we are unable to say which is the truth or the false. We are strangers to this thing, the prosecutor is carrying out investigations that will surely give feedback. However the fact may be we do not enter into this story ”, says Salvatore.
He asks that his family be left alone, but he also appeals to the Tobacconist Federation, so that they are not left alone. “We just want to work, we have nothing to do with this,” he says.
