Murder Of Gambino Boss Frank Cali Was More Romeo And Juliet Than The Godfather

Image
Anthony Comello, 24, has been in custody in New Jersey since he was arrested yesterday morning on the Jersey Shore. As things now stand, he faces charges on Staten Island, where he will be extradited (most likely tomorrow) for the murder of Gambino acting boss Francesco (Franky Boy) Cali.



There's no official word about the motive for the murder, which was widely thought to be a gangland hit. However, as we reported earlier, Comello killed Cali because Cali wouldn't let him date his niece. Our sources say the young man was troubled, with drug and mental health issues.

And we report again that Comello admitted to asking President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence for "permission" to shoot Cali.

The murder of Frank Cali leaves a hole at the top of the Gambino crime family, said someone who knew Frank.

"Frank (Cali) kept things stable since he took over as boss," said former Gambino capo Michael (Mikie Scars) DiLeonardo. "He made himself scarce and…

President Trump And Vice President Mike Pence Told Him To Shoot Gambino Boss Frank Cali

UPDATED
Anthony Comello reportedly confessed to shooting Frank Cali and is awaiting extradition back to New York.

Sources tell Cosa Nostra News that the man who killed the Gambino boss on Wednesday night had heard voices -- to the extent that he "asked" President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence for permission to kill the Gambino acting boss.


Anthony Comello, 24, above, has been identified as the suspect who shot Frank Cali, 53, multiple times on the street outside his brick mansion on Todt Hill on Wednesday night.

Sources say Cali, the mob boss, thought Comello, who worked odd construction jobs for a living and was known to have a serious drug addiction and mental health issues, was trouble.

Cali didn’t think Comello was worthy of associating with a woman in his family, the sources added.




Sources also tell us that Comello was dating Frank Cali's niece, until he'd been told he wasn't allowed to any longer, by Cali himself.

NOT A SANCTIONED HIT, NYPD SAYS: Suspect In Custody For Gambino Boss Slaying

Image
The New York Post is reporting that  a suspect is in custody in connection to the slaying Wednesday night of reputed Gambino mob boss Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali outside his Staten Island home.



Police sources told The Post Saturday that the suspect is a white male in his late 20s or 30s, and he is being questioned about the Wednesday night shooting.







Authorities got the suspect’s fingerprint off the license plate of Cali’s silver Cadillac Escalade SUV — which he handed to the mobster after allegedly smashing into the car, the sources said.


Cali, 53, was shot several times in front of his brick mansion in the lavish Todt Hill neighborhood at about 9:20 p.m. His wife and young children were inside.

He shook hands with the shooter before he was killed, a source said.

The hit on Cali was not sanctioned by New York’s five Mafia families, NYPD says
The shake was captured on surveillance footage from Cali’s brick mansion in the Todt Hill section of Staten Island.

Lured By "Faked" Crash, Gambino Boss Frank Cali Rushed Into An Ambush

NYPD SEARCHING NEIGHBORHOOD FOR MORE SURVEILLANCE VIDEO
A “faked” car crash caught the attention of Gambino boss Frank Cali Wednesday night at around 9:15 pm while he was inside his red-brick Staten Island house eating dinner with his family.

Multiple police sources say the shooter drove up to the mobster's home, stopped, and then reversed, crashing into Cali’s silver Cadillac Escalade SUV, prompting the mobster to rush outside. Surveillance video caught Cali talking and shaking hands with the suspect, apparently sensing no danger. Cali then turned his back before he was shot.

Video is too grainy for police to identify the gunman, the multiple sources said. The NYPD is now  searching the neighborhood for more possible video.

The shooter pumped at least six 9mm bullets into Cali before hopping back into the vehicle and speeding away. (Cops would recover 12 shell casings at the scene).





Yesterday, the NYPD combed surveillance footage of Staten Island’s bridges but found no trac…

UPDATED AND EXPANDED WITH MIKIE SCARS INTERVIEW, QUOTES FROM SOURCES
In a stunning development, the likes of which have not been seen since 1985, Francesco (Frank) Cali, the reputed acting boss of the Gambino crime family, was gunned down outside his home on Staten Island on Wednesday night, according to a senior police official and widespread media reports.



The police said they received a report about the grizzly shooting outside 25 Hilltop Terrace in the Todt Hill section of Staten Island around 9:20 p.m. There was also a report of a blue pickup truck leaving the scene around the time of shooting.

The Daily News quoted a witness as saying “There were like six shots, and then there were three more. The man (Cali) was on the ground face-up. His head was by his SUV, and the truck was open.”

As per a BBC report: Witnesses said Cali's killer also “ran him over before fleeing the scene. Family members were seen to rush into the street and sit crying next to his body.”

Associate Of "Baby Shacks" Whacked In Potential Retaliation For Robbing Gambino Mobster

Image
A man gunned down Sunday morning in what Rhode Island law enforcement authorities say was a gangland hit was a known associate of former New England Mafia boss Luigi "Baby Shacks" Manocchio who had robbed an alleged associate of the Gambino crime family, as per a Target 12 report.

Napoloen Andrade, 37, of Central Falls, was shot in the shadow of the Pawtucket halfway house where he was sent prior to his release. 
Andrade — who has a lengthy criminal record that includes violent crime and drug trafficking— was finishing a sentence for his role in a 2010 Connecticut home invasion of a Gambino crime family associate, 78.

In 2014, Andrade was convicted for the robbery.

"He has a lot of enemies," retired R.I. State Police Col. Steven O'Donnell, a veteran mob investigator, told Target 12. "There are a lot of people, based on things that have happened over his lifetime — it could push law enforcement in 10 different directions."

FINAL/PAGAN'S TESTIMONY DETAILED
People can change, we believe.... A person guilty and convicted of a crime, even murder, can become someone who would never commit that crime again.



American society at large does not agree with that basic premise. Consider: Those convicted of certain crimes (not only murder) get mandatory sentences that surpass the average human lifespan. In many instances such lifelong sentences may seem more than warranted. But occasionally, considering certain mitigating factors, especially with first-time offenders, such soul-crushing (literally) sentences seem unfair.






Consider: Law enforcement generally investigates a crime by...?

Among other things, by interviewing people close to "the victim." If you are among those who knew/know the victim and you have a criminal record (especially a felony record) detectives will only grudgingly leave you alone  after you've passed the lie detector test and your solid alibi proved unbreakable despite their b…
