According to an Italian daily, La Stampa, the two who were allegedly closely involved with the deceased, were eligible for the insurance money.
The deceased, 39, from Northwest Italy, was married with a young son, but was also in a long time relationship with his mistress.
According to her lawyer, Gino Arnone, the mistress was the one who was called upon to identify the man’s body at the scene of the accident. This is because the man’s wife was reportedly away on a work trip.
Arnone further said that the deceased divided his time between the two women, spending three days in a week with his mistress, and four days with his wife and son.
The company agreed to award both of them, although withheld the amount each would receive, only assuring of “considerable amounts.”
