Pizza outlet owner kills self after 200,000-euro fine (ANSA) - Naples, February 20 - The owner of a struggling takeaway pizza joint in a town near Naples took his own life Thursday after being served a 200,000-euro fine.

Eduardo De Falco of Casalnuovo died of toxic fumes after rigging his car exhaust up to the interior of the vehicle. Friends and neighbours said De Falco was a hard worker who had become depressed as his business worsened during Italy's longest postwar recession. They said the fine was the last straw.
