Ricardo Barbaro Family
Barbaro comes from a notorious Australian clan where some family members have well-documented links to the powerful Italian mafia organization from Calabria, known as the ‘Ndrangheta. The sprawling Barbaro family – which lives in Melbourne, Sydney and the Gold Coast – also has a tragic modern history.
Barbaro is believed to be the son of Guiseppe Barbaro and the grandson of Pasquale Barbaro, who was murdered in 1990.
Mr Barbaro is the brother of Sydney underworld boss Pasquale Timothy Barbaro, 35, who was gunned down in 2016.
His grandfather Peter Pasquale Barbaro was also gunned down in Brisbane in 1990 while his cousin Pasquale Barbaro was killed alongside underworld figure Jason Moran while watching a children’s football training session in 2003.
Barbaro’s uncle – another Pasquale Barbaro, from Griffith in NSW – was the kingpin in the world’s biggest ecstasy bust in 2007. He was sentenced in Melbourne to 30 years in jail in 2012.
Ricardo Barbaro Girlfriend Ellie Price’s Murder
Ms Price’s body was discovered in her South Melbourne apartment on May 4.
Police said they believed the 26-year-old suffered “a significant assault” about a week before her body was discovered.
“She may have been in those premises for a number of days, perhaps up to five days,” Victoria Police Detective Inspector Tim Day said this week.
He confirmed Barbaro and Ms Price had been in an on-off relationship since about October 2019 and asked anyone who may have been in the area of Park and Ferrars Streets around the time of her death to contact police if they have information.
Ms Price’s Mercedes was found in nearby Diggers Rest last week and police urged anyone who may be harbouring Barbaro to come forward.
“My warning is to those people that they do not want to put themselves in jeopardy of an accessory charge by harbouring him or assisting him during this time,” Det. Insp. Day said earlier.
