Prison warden had 'no clue' escaped con a serial killer
'Paperwork says he's a robber'18 December, 18:51
"The paperwork says he's a robber,'' prison warden Salvatore Mazzeo told reporters.
Gagliano, 55, has been convicted of the murders of two prostitutes and a man, plus an attempted murder between 1981 and 1989.
He has also been convicted for robbery, drugs and weapons possession, aggression and extortion.
He was granted a temporary-leave permit to visit his mother in Savona as a reward for good conduct over the past three years when he hijacked a civilian car at gunpoint and went on the lam on Wednesday.
Gagliano had already escaped from a criminal psychiatric hospital in Montelupo Fiorentino near Florence in 1989.
