Almost exactly two years ago, I wrote this article about the Sicilian bandit Salvatore Giuliano - known to friends, family and in legend as Turiddu - for Italy Magazine. At that time, the body in the tomb bearing Giuliano's name in the Montelepre cemetry [Palermo] had just been exhumed in the hope of proving or disproving claims that the body was that of a look-alike and that the real Turiddu, far from being shot dead by a Carabiniere captain or killed by a cousin in 1950, had escaped to the USA.
La Sicilia reports that DNA tests on a femur and tibia were inconclusive, as were comparisons of these findings with Giuliano's genetic profile [obtained by examining some of his clothing and other belongings]. Two years on, scientists can only tell us that it is probable - even 90% likely - that the remains in the grave are Giuliano's but they cannot give a definite answer.
The Palermo Proscutor's Office has to decide whether to archive the findings or order new investigations so it's still "Turi who?" for now.
