    General Mafia News/ Mob Murders

    Let's keep this filled with mob murders, and high profile arrests, deaths.

    Gambino crime family boss Frank Cali shot dead outside Staten Island home

    By Larry Celona and Ben Feuerherd
    New York Post

    The boss of the Gambino crime family was whacked in front of his Staten Island home Wednesday night, police sources told The Post.

    Frank Cali, 53, was gunned down by a shooter in front of his house on Hilltop Terrace in the Todt Hill section at about 9:20 p.m., the sources said.

    The gunman pumped a number of bullets into Cali then sped off in a blue pickup truck, according to police sources.

    Cali was rushed to Staten Island University Hospital North and declared dead, the sources said.

    A 911 caller reported hearing six or seven shots at the scene, but it was unclear how many times Cali was hit, police sources said.

    No arrests were immediately made and police were scouring for video and looking for witnesses to the shooting, police said.

    Cali, a native of Sicily, became the de facto godfather of the Gambinos in 2015.

    He was described by mafia watchers as the opposite of the exuberant former boss John Gotti because “no one ever sees him.”

    “He was a real quiet old-school boss,” a police source told The Post.

    Cali infused the family with a new crop of immigrant Italian gangsters and focused on the heroin and Oxycontin trade, sources told The Post in September.

    He had just one criminal conviction: an extortion charge in 2008 for an attempted shake down of a trucker working at a proposed NASCAR race track in Staten Island. He did just 16 months in the prison for the conviction.

    Legendary NYC Mafia boss Carmine Persico dies behind bars at 85

    A legendary New York City gangster known as “The Snake” has died behind bars -- three decades after he and two other Mafia bosses were convicted in a historic Mafia case brought by federal prosecutors under then-U.S. Attorney Rudolph Guiliani.

    Carmine Persico, longtime boss of the ruthlessly violent Colombo crime family gasped his last breath Thursday at a North Carolina hospital in the midst of 139-year prison sentence in federal prison. He was 85.

    Experts said Persico's death marks the end of an era in New York City, according to the New York Post.

    “He’s from the bygone era from when organized crime controlled New York City. It was a part of history, just like Al Capone and Jesse James,” said Pace University law school professor John Meringolo, whose clients include reputed mobsters.

    Persico and seven other mobsters were convicted in the so-called Mafia commission case overseen by Giuliani, who went on become New York City mayor and is now President Trump’s personal lawyer in Robert Mueller's Russia meddling probe.

    Prosecutors accused Persico and the leaders of the other four Italian-Mafia families in New York City of creating the commission to carve up territories, oversee disputes between rival mobsters and approve gangland slayings.

    The commission case dealt a significant blow to the Mafia’s vice-like control of corrupt unions and various illegal rackets.

    At the trial, the jury heard the feds accuse Persico of involvement in the legendary rubouts of two big-name mobsters: Albert Anastasia, the Murder Inc. leader who was killed in a barber's chair in Manhattan in 1957, and Joseph Gallo, who was shot at Umberto's Clam House in Little Italy in 1972.

    Persico took over the Colombo mob in 1973 and was believed to have still exerted control over Colombo family business from his prison cell.

    Persico lawyer Benson Weintraub confirmed Persico’s death and said his treatment with antibiotics was interrupted by the 35-day government shutown, hastening his decline, WABC-TV reported Friday.

    The mobster was moved Monday to the hospice unit at Duke University Medical Center from the federal lockup in Butner, North Carolina, the station reported. Another Butner inmate is Ponzi scammer Bernie Madoff.

    At the sentencing in the commission case, Manhattan Federal Court Judge John Keenan suggested that Persico could have been a great man, if he'd chosen another calling.

    "Mr. Persico, you're a tragedy," he said. "You are one of the most intelligent people I have ever seen."

    Pawtucket shooting victim had ties to former mob boss Manocchio

    By Tim White

    The man who was gunned down Sunday morning in what authorities are examining as a possible gangland slaying was an associate of a former Rhode Island mob boss, the Target 12 Investigators have learned.

    Napoloen Andrade, 37, of Central Falls, was shot in the shadow of the Pawtucket halfway house where he was staying. Andrade — who has a lengthy criminal history — was wrapping up a sentence for taking part in a 2010 Connecticut home invasion where the victim was a 78-year-old associate of the Gambino crime family.

    Andrade previously worked as a bouncer at Providence-area strip clubs with ties to organized crime. Retired R.I. State Police Col. Steven O'Donnell, a veteran mob investigator, said Andrade was an associate to former mob boss Luigi "Baby Shacks" Manocchio.

    "He's an enforcer; he's the type of person when he shows up at your door you're going to what you’re asked to do," O'Donnell said. "It was unusual to have a mob boss trusting someone outside the mob family. That relationship developed over years and Louie Manocchio trusted him."

    Manocchio, 91, was released from federal prison in 2015 after serving five-and-a-half years for shaking down strip clubs for protection money. The case was part of a sweeping 2011 crackdown into organized crime.

    O'Donnell said there is little question detectives are looking into whether the murder was in retribution to the home invasion. He said it's likely Pawtucket police have questioned another resident of the halfway house: mob capo Edward "Eddie" Lato.

    Lato, 71, is wrapping up his nine-year sentence after pleading guilty in the same case as Manocchio.

    "I think they interview everyone in that house," O'Donnell said. "Some people may interview with them, some may choose not to."

    Christian Schiavone, communications director for Community Resources for Justice, the nonprofit that runs the halfway house, said the murder "appears to have been an isolated incident. Out of an abundance of caution, we are taking some additional security measures, but we remain confident that the program is secure.”

    Schiavone also said the group is "fully cooperating with law enforcement."

    "Our thoughts are with those who’ve been impacted by this terrible incident, and our focus now is on supporting our staff and residents and reaching out to our community partners during this difficult time," he said in an email.

    Andrade was no stranger to police. Court records show he has been charged nearly a dozen times in the last 18 years by local law enforcement and was caught up in several federal investigations, including on gun and drug charges.

    O'Donnell said the long rap sheet creates challenges for police.

    "He has a lot of enemies," O'Donnell said. "There are a lot of people, based on things that have happened over his lifetime — it could push law enforcement in 10 different directions."

    At his sentencing for the home invasion in 2014, Assistant U.S. Attorney Gerard Sullivan called Andrade "a career criminal and a brutal man."

    He told the judge Andrade lunged at the Gambino associate "threw a football tackle on him, bound him, and put a towel over his head."

    One of Andrade's attorneys, Paul DiMaio, said his client was tough on the street, but was easy to deal with in the courtroom. Andrade ended up pleading guilty to charges related to the home invasion to avoid trial.

    "He took his medicine," DiMaio said, adding that he thought others directed Andrade to commit the home invasion "because he was a tough kid."

    A spokesperson for the FBI referred all questions to Pawtucket police leaders, saying it was their investigation.

    A Rhode Island State Police spokesperson said the agency has a detective assigned to the federal Safe Streets Task Force assisting in the case.

    If the Andrade murder turns out to be an orchestrated hit with ties to members or associates of La Cosa Nostra, it will be the first one in Rhode Island in nearly a quarter-century.

    In the early morning of April 1, 1994, two people were shot and killed inside the Hockey Fans Social Club in Cranston. Mobster Antonino "Nino" Cucinotta — who used to be the driver for legendary mob boss Raymond Patriarca — pleaded guilty four years later to charges that he executed fellow mobster Ronnie Coppola and associate Peter Scarpellino.

    O'Donnell said Andrade's murder could also send ripple effects through the region, and may force some to seek government protection. He singled out mob captain Robert DeLuca and his brother, mobster Joseph DeLuca, both of whom testified against former boss Francis "Cadillac Frank" Salemme.

    "Never underestimate that family," O'Donnell said, referring to La Cosa Nostra. "It's up to those people if they want to move ... if they don't want to go it’s their peril, but I would be paying attention to that if I was on the street."

    Robert DeLuca is currently in prison after pleading guilty to charges that he lied to investigators.

    Gambino crime boss shook hitman’s hand before murder

    By Stephanie Pagones, Larry Celona and Natalie Musumeci
    New York Post

    Slain Gambino crime boss Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali shook hands with his killer before he was gunned down in a fusillade of bullets, a high-ranking police source told The Post Friday.

    The interaction was captured on surveillance footage from Cali’s brick mansion in the Todt Hill section of Staten Island.

    Cali, 53, exited his home shortly before 9:20 p.m. Wednesday after a motorist in a blue pickup truck reversed the vehicle into the mobster’s parked Cadillac Escalade, causing it to “rock significantly,” Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea has said.

    Footage from the property, which authorities obtained using a search warrant, shows Cali and the man having a conversation and shaking hands before the man passes Cali the license plate that fell off the Cadillac during the crash that lured the Gambino don outside, sources said.

    The hit man — approximately 25 to 40 years of age — opened fire with a 9 mm weapon as Cali turned his back and was putting the license plate in the trunk of the Escalade, according to sources.

    “It’s not like they came out, started a fistfight,” the high-ranking source said. “The importance of that is — it’s almost as if proof of the concept that hitting the car was contrived.”

    “It doesn’t look like there was any rage,” said the source.

    The gunman fired 12 rounds, shooting Cali at least six times.

    “I heard five shots. Two at first and then three more. I was frightened,” said a longtime neighbor, Rose Zaccaria, 90. “That night it looked like a murder mystery. A lot of vehicles and lights and commotion. Like a scene from the movies.”

    Cali tried to escape the hail of bullets by hiding under the Cadillac, which initially led investigators to believe that he had been run over during the attack. Police no longer believe that was the case.

    The city Medical Examiner’s Office ruled Friday that Cali died from gunshot wounds, an ME source said.

    Cali’s body was transferred from the Kings County Hospital morgue on Friday to the Scarpaci Funeral Home on Staten Island where a wake will be held for him, sources said.

    Meanwhile, officers armed with a search warrant removed electronics, including cellphones and laptops, from Cali’s home Thursday as police deepen their investigation into the slaying, sources said.

    Authorities continue to eye 72-year-old Gene Gotti, a brother of the late Gambino crime boss “Dapper Don” John Gotti, in the killing, according to law enforcement sources who say the hit on Cali was not sanctioned by New York’s five Mafia families.

    Gene Gotti was released from prison in September 2018 after spending 29 years behind bars for heroin dealing.

    “Everything was running smoothly. Everybody was making money and something like this is only bad for business,” a law enforcement source said. “Now they’re back on the front page.”

    Gambino associate arrested for murder of Brooklyn loan shark

    By Ruth Brown and Priscilla DeGregory
    New York Post

    A Gambino crime family associate has been arrested for the murder and robbery of mob-tied loan shark Vincent Zito, authorities announced Thursday.

    Anthony Pandrella, 59, of Brooklyn was arrested Wednesday for the execution-style slay of Zito, 77, who was shot twice in the head inside his Sheepshead Bay home on Oct. 26, 2018, according to US Attorney Richard Donoghue.

    Pandrella allegedly stole the assets of Zito’s loan business after the killing.

    The news came a day after Gambino crime boss Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali was assassinated in front of his Staten Island home.

    Prosecutors say Pandrella and Zito were longtime friends.

    Pandrella met with Zito in the older man’s home, put two bullets in the back of his head at close range, swiped his loansharking assets and then cleaned up any trace of himself at the crime scene, the feds allege.

    He returned to the house that night to sit with Zito’s loved ones — but was really there just to glean what he could about the police investigation, prosecutors claim.

    “An associate of the Gambino crime family allegedly shoots his friend in the back of the head, returns to the home to visit with the family and then thinks he can dispose of the evidence of the crime,” FBI Assistant Director-in-Charge William F Sweeney Jr. said Thursday.

    “It takes a certain type of evil to murder a friend in their own home, and then console the grieving relatives.”

    Pandrella allegedly was captured on security footage entering and exiting Zito’s home at the time of the crime, and his DNA was recovered from the trigger of the murder weapon, authorities say.

    A grand jury indicted Pandrella on March 7, and the indictment was unsealed Thursday following his arrest.

    He appeared in Brooklyn federal court Thursday where he pleaded not guilty.

    Pandrella’s lawyer, James Froccaro, said he “plans to fight the charges to the fullest extent of the law.”

    Also at the court hearing was Zito’s family, including grandson Joseph, who discovered his grandfather’s body when he came home from school Zito’s son was asked after the hearing what it was like to see his father’s alleged killer in court.

    “Alive?” the younger Zito cracked. “I want him to live a long time so he will serve a long time.”

    He added: “He will get his justice. Our days will never be the same. Life will never be the same. But life goes on.”

    Brooklyn Assistant US Attorney Kristin Mace said a permanent order of detention should be filed in this case because Pandrella is a danger to the community. He as remanded until a bail hearing on March 21.

    Mob boss who inspired other infamous turncoats dies in witness protection

    By Tom Robbins and Jerry Capeci
    New York Post

    The Mafia big who was the first of his generation to spill the mob’s most precious secrets about its extensive reach into legitimate businesses, labor unions and illegal rackets in New York has died.

    Alfonso “Little Al” D’Arco, who went from heist artist on the postwar Brooklyn streets to acting boss of the Luchese crime family before turning government witness in 1991, was 86. He died in witness protection earlier this month from complications due to kidney disease.

    D’Arco’s decision to abandon his Mafia oath helped inspire other high-ranking turncoat mobsters, including Salvatore “Sammy Bull” Gravano, right-hand man to John Gotti, and a dozen others. All told, their collective testimony sent scores of mobsters to prison and helped dislodge New York’s Cosa Nostra from some of its richest prizes.

    By the time D’Arco and other cooperators were done testifying, the powerful economic and criminal presence in the city known as the Five Families had been reduced to small groups of aging wiseguys assisted by young wannabes who displayed little talent for organized crime.

    Most of those subsequent defectors, including Gravano, were facing the likelihood of life in prison when they decided to cooperate. D’Arco, however, was not under indictment for anything. The feds didn’t even know much about him. But he had a more immediate reason to want out: At the time, Little Al believed that the murderous chieftains at the top of the Luchese family hierarchy — a duo of Vittorio “Vic” Amuso and Anthony “Gaspipe” Casso — had marked him for death, a threat that extended to his wife and children as well.

    D’Arco had firsthand knowledge of how suddenly and viciously Amuso, the official boss of the family, and Casso, his underboss, could turn on their longtime partners in crime.

    As their handpicked acting boss, D’Arco had been ordered by Amuso and Casso, both of whom were fugitives from racketeering charges at the time, to arrange the murders of a dozen men aligned with the Luchese family. All were alleged by the bosses to be potential informants.

    In a three-year spasm of violence between 1988 and 1991, Luchese gunmen killed a total of 17 men, their bodies left sprawling in underground garages, dumped into landfills, jammed into car trunks or secretly cremated. At the bosses’ direction, a dead canary was stuffed into the mouth of one Luchese veteran after he was assassinated in Brooklyn.

    The bird was supposed to send the message that the victim had been an informant. But that was untrue. In fact, most of the death sentences ordered by Amuso and Casso, D’Arco came to realize, had little to do with Mafia disloyalty. Instead, most of the murders were an effort to eliminate potential rivals and seize their often lucrative crime operations.

    His decision to switch sides was also spurred by outrage at what D’Arco, a firm mob traditionalist, viewed as violations of long-standing Mafia rule, including targeting family members of mobsters. Just a few weeks earlier, Luchese soldiers had been dispatched to threaten the lives of the elderly parents of a mobster the bosses feared was turning on them.

    D’Arco soon became convinced that his number was up as well. While attending a business meeting of Luchese captains in a posh Midtown hotel, he spotted a mobster secretly stashing a pistol in the bathroom.

    Believing he was being set up to be killed, D’Arco blurted goodbyes and bolted from the hotel room. The next morning, he sent his wife, two daughters and youngest son away, and fled with his older son, Joseph, who was also a crime-family member.

    From a hiding place on Long Island, D’Arco reached out to the FBI. Agents soon scooped him up and began debriefing him.

    Out poured a vast stream of mob knowledge. D’Arco detailed the loan-shark arrangements, the union locals and the mobsters who controlled them, the monthly payoffs from construction companies, the hierarchies of each crime family, even a list of more than two dozen factions in the Sicilian Mafia.

    He stood just 5-foot-7, hence his nickname, and had an accent straight out of the Dead End Kids. He served two terms in prison, including a stretch in Sing Sing for stolen stock certificates in the early 1960s. That experience, along with a later federal conviction in the 1980s for heroin sales, served as a kind of graduate school for the aspiring gangster. Throughout, he had paid close attention to the business of the Mafia, and many of his stories shocked government officials.

    He told how the mob had divided the proceeds from the scrap iron generated by the demolition of the old elevated West Side Highway; the mob had also profited from the construction of a huge nuclear power plant. Mob penetration of the construction industry remained so deep, he told them, that even a concrete contractor then working on federal projects and who had allegedly been vetted for mob ties was paying $20,000 each month to his crime family.

    “He was the best,” Michael Campi, a former FBI supervisor who spent 20 years chasing wiseguys in New York and was one of those conducting the debriefing sessions, told us for the book “Mob Boss,” a biography of D’Arco. “Al D’Arco was the most significant made member to cooperate. He really built that bridge for others to cross.”


    His shift from gangster to witness was just another phase in that life, he said.

    “I’m still a mobster,” he told prosecutors. “But I’m an outlaw, that’s all. It’s not like they throw you out of the mob when you flip. You’re just considered an outlaw. That’s what I am.”

    Still, sitting in a chain motel in middle America far from the Little Italy streets for a series of interviews for the book, Little Al D’Arco often waxed nostalgic about the world he had left behind. “I could be back to crime now, if I wanted it. Crime is crime. You don’t forget how to make a living.”

    But he had given his word to the feds, he said, adding, “If I am starving, I won’t go back to it. I gave my word.

    “But as far as living day to day? I take that life any f–king day of the week.”

    We all live in a clown world.
