Godfather caught in Italy

It's the stuff of movies. The "boss of bosses" of Sicily has been on the lamb for 40 years. He's rich; could be anywhere. They found him hiding in a farm house near the town of Corleone, Sicily. (Bloomberg has the story here.)

In The Godfather series young Vito Andolini was given the name Vito Corleone when an Ellis Island official saw "Corleone" on his papers. The official mistook his city of origin, Corleone, for his last name. And the Godfather was born.
