“On Aug. 4, 1955, Assunta Maresca — 20 years old and six months pregnant — took a .38 Smith & Wesson revolver and, in broad daylight on a busy avenue in Naples, pumped its contents into the body of the man she suspected was behind the assassination of her husband.” And that’s only the warm-up for this obituary. WaPo (Gift Article): Assunta ‘Pupetta’ Maresca, reputed ‘godmother’ of Naples mafia, dies at 86. (If you’re a godmother in the Naples mafia and you live to 86, that’s saying something.)
