Paramedic stole Rolex from dying Sopranos star

A paramedic has been accused of stealing a Rolex from Sopranos star James Gandolfini in his final hours.

The Telegraph UK reports the Italian paramedic has gone on trial, accused of stealing the Rolex from Gandolfini’s wrist as he lay dying in a Rome hotel following a heart attack.

Claudio Bevilacqua, an ambulance stretcher-bearer, was part of the team who rushed to the Boscolo Exedra Hotel in the Italian capital in June 2013.

The 43-year-old is accused of taking the $4000 Submariner watch.

Two members of the hotel’s security staff reportedly noticed the watch was missing and it was reported as stolen on an insurance form filed by Gandolfini’s family.

Bevilacqua did not attend the start of the trial earlier this week and has not entered a plea.

His trial has been adjourned until November.
