    TORONTO — An accused Mafia fugitive who was hiding in Canada for seven years before his deportation to Italy was the cousin of one of two victims of a shocking double murder inside an Ontario café, the National Post has learned.

    Tito Figliomeni, 48, was also involved in a mob dispute over illicit gambling in Toronto-area bars and cafés before his arrest March 10, authorities say, raising questions of whether a Mafia feud played any role in the fatal 2015 shootings.

    On June 24, 2015, a man wearing a mask and gloves drove a stolen car to the Moka café on Islington Ave. in Woodbridge, Ont., just north of Toronto. He walked inside and started shooting, police said.

    Four people were shot, two of them fatally. The dead were identified as Maria Voci, 47, who worked at the café, and a customer, Christopher Desimone, 24, both residents of Vaughan.

    What was not known at the time was that Voci is also known by the maiden name Maria Frascà. She is named as a cousin of Figliomeni by Italian authorities.

    And yet, there is no comment.
