Mafia informant dissolved in acid

MILAN – A mafia informant who disappeared nearly a year ago was tortured and her body was dissolved in acid by her former partner and other family members angry that she had cooperated with authorities, Italian police said yesterday.

The woman, Lea Garofalo, 35, was forced onto a truck carrying 13 gallons of acid, interrogated by her abductors and later killed in a field near Milan in the night between Nov. 24 and Nov. 25, 2009, investigators said.
