People & Power investigate the death of security boss Adamo Bove, whose probe into the abduction of a Muslim cleric set off a wiretapping scandal.

Just after noon on July 21 2006, Adamo Bove, head of security at Telecom Italia, told his wife he had some errands to run as he left their Naples apartment. Hours later, police found his car parked atop a freeway overpass. Bove's body lay on the pavement some 100 feet below.

Did he jump or was he pushed?
