In June 1982, banker Roberto Calvi’s body was found hanging under Blackfriars Bridge. Blackfriars Bridge is assumed to be linked to Freemasonry. And that link is interesting since Roberto Calvi was a member of the lodge P2. He was also the banker of Banco Ambosiana which itself was linked to the Vatican. Enough material for a conspiracy theory. On top of that, his secretary was also found murdered on the same day.

Blackfriars Bridge is named after the Dominican convent that once stood here. Dominicans had black robes, and therefore named the black brothers.
