Benedetto Castelli crime and prison record

Post by ricbru » 28 Mar 2006, 22:51

Hello everyone,
a friend of my dad had his father, Giacomo Callotta from Trapani, that emigrated to US, several times.
On 1910 he left with a boy, Benedetto Castelli, from Santo Stefano di Camastra.
Giacomo Callotta was in charge of this boy, and he was bringing him to his parents in US, as requested from them.
My father's friend, son of Giacomo Callotta, told me that, as written on Giacomo diary, Benedetto Castelli killed two policemen and went to jail.
I wonder if anyone is able to find his crime or prison record.
I'm not able to find anything on
But I don't know where and when it happended,
Thanks in advance,
bye Riccardo :lol:
