Paramedic Goes on Trial For Stealing James Gandolfini’s Rolex As He Lay Dying

A paramedic in Rome, Italy, will go on trial for allegedly stealing a Rolex from James Gandolfini following the actor’s fatal heart attack in June 2013.

Claudio Bevilacqua, 43, originally had a trial date Monday, but he did not show up, according to NBC News. The judge postponed the trial until November.

The paramedic is accused of snatching Gandolfini’s Rolex Submariner at some point between the response to his Rome hotel room and his transport to the hospital, where he died.

The exact model and cost of the watch was not given, but different versions of the Submariner can cost between $6,000 and $30,000.

Gandolfini, winner of three Emmys and one Golden Globe, is best known for his work as New Jersey mob boss Tony Soprano in the hit HBO series The Sopranos. He also produced documentaries about the effects of war on soldiers and was an advocate for veterans’ rights.
