Arquímedes Puccio, head of the family gang that kidnapped businessmen during the 80’s, died today while he served parole at a friend’s residence in the province of La Pampa.

84-year old Puccio spent 23 years in prison till he was granted parole by the Criminal Attorney Office considering he no longer predicted a danger to others.

On August 23, 1985 the Argentine criminal and the rest of the gang were arrested and sentenced to life, found guilty of the kidnapping and murder of businessmen Eduardo Aulet, Emilio Naum and Ricardo Manoukian. They were also claimed responsible for the kidnap of Nélida Bollini de Prado who was found alive by the Police.

Other members of the so called “Puccio clan” were Arquímedes’s son and ex rugby player Alejandro Puccio; Gustavo Contepomi and retired Coronel Rodolfo Victoriano Franco among others.
