Mafia Turncoats Got Away with Murder, LITERALLY!

Turncoat mobsters committed hits, while taxpayers footed the bill.

We're talking about a lot of money here -- six-figure sums.

Killers snitching to the feds "got away with murder when FBI agents looked the other way, a shocking report to Congress claims," according to an exclusive report.





Angela Clemente has been probing the FBI’s handling of informants. A forensic investigator for the House Government Reform Committee in 2002, she has been helping on mob cases ever since.

In 2006, Clemente, 47, was choked and left for dead after an assailant lured her to a meeting at a mall in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, with the promise of a tip.





She recovered but is now suffering from a life-threatening liver disease that reduced her to 100 pounds.

"Clemente’s new information involves a host of wiseguys and their secret, lucrative deals with the FBI and the US Attorney’s Office in Brooklyn," the New York Post reported.

The allegations show “a culture of corruption,” said Clemente, who is researching the case for Congress despite her disease.

They were told “these guys [were committing] murders and rewarding them in payment and reduced sentences — with absolutely no regard for the victims and their families.”

Clemente, whose digging led to the indictment of allegedly corrupt former FBI supervisor Lindley DeVecchio, sent her findings last week to lawmakers, including Sen. Charles Grassley (R-Iowa), the top Republican on the Judiciary Committee. The information is being “reviewed and considered,” his spokesperson said.

She blasts the FBI for what amounted to an unholy alliance that left a trail of bodies, including goodfellas and innocent victims.

Clemente claims Colombo wiseguys Gregory “Grim Reaper” Scarpa, Phillip “Philly Boy” Paradiso and Frankie “Blue Eyes” Sparaco got government checks while whacking foes in the 1980s and 1990s.

“We have proof [FBI agents] were allowing these guys to commit murder,” Clemente said. “They can’t say they didn’t know.”

Current and former law-enforcement sources detailed some of the crimes.


  • Scarpa, who claimed he murdered more than 50 people before his death in 1994, delivered a close-range kill shot in the 1984 slaying of mob moll Mary Bari, a stunner who dated Colombo underboss Alphonse “Allie Boy” Persico. Persico, then on the lam, worried that Bari was going to rat on him, so he ordered the hit and Scarpa did the job, sources said.

Two of Sparaco’s victims in 1992 “definitely were not mobsters,” said a former investigator.


  • Michael Devine, who co-owned a Staten Island restaurant, was killed for making the mistake of dating Persico’s estranged wife. 

  • A successful candy-store owner in Bay Ridge, who was friendly with Scarpa, got rubbed out because he refused to help fund the Persico faction’s internal war with their Colombo rivals, one source said.


Sparaco was implicated by other turncoats in both homicides, which remain unsolved. He had pointed the finger at others.

Last year, the feds acknowledged in court papers that Sparaco lied and misled them during his years of cooperation, which Clemente says began in the mid-1980s.

The FBI denied Clemente’s allegations.

“No FBI informant committed crimes with the knowledge, much less the approval, of the FBI,” said spokesman James Margolin.
