Double killer nabbed after jail break

19-year-old tracked down by Carabinieri soon after escape

(ANSA) - Cagliari, August 10 - Paolo Enrico Pinna, a 19-year-old recently sentenced to 20 years in jail for two murders committed in 2015, before he was 18, was tracked down by Carabinieri police on Wednesday shortly after escaping from a jail for minors at Quartucciu, Cagliari. Pinna was found some 20km from Cagliari on a tractor he had stolen. In April Pinna was convicted of the murders of Gianluca Monni, 19, and Stefano Masala, 28, in Sardinian towns. On May 8, 2015, 19-year-old Monni from the town of Orune was killed while waiting for a bus to school. Masala, 28, went missing from the nearby town of Nule the day before Monni's killing and was never found. The escape was the latest in a series of recent jail breaks in Italy.
