May 18 (THAINDIAN NEWS) Investigators are working on a very disturbing case in Naples, Italy involving pizzas which may have been cooked with the wood of stolen coffins. These famous pizzas, which is the favorite dish of the southern city, rely on the smoke from burning wood to give them the special flavor which everyone seems to have a taste for. Police are afraid, however, that that famous wood fired taste has been coming from ovens full of wooden caskets.

In a report which was published in ‘Il Gornale’ which is the newspaper owned by the family of the Italian Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, “A real suspicion hangs over pizza, one of the few remaining important symbols of the city, that it could be cooked with wood coffins. Not only the pizza, the bread, too, may have been cooked with the wood.”

The prosecutor who is investigating the case, Giovandomenico Lepore, is working to find the truth in this bizarre and nasty case. The president of the city’s cemetery commission, Andrea Santoro, stated, “It’s no wonder these things are happening given the state of the cemeteries. There are graves uncovered, thefts and vandalism.” The ‘Il Gornale’ also added, “A gang might have set up a market for coffins sold to hard-hearted owners of bakeries and pizzerias looking to save money on wood.”
