This is nonsence! Someone knows something! I have been following this story since it came out. I think he's with the F.B.I. He is not listed on any of the F.B.I. "missing persons" list.
They probably got word that he was going to get whacked because he knew too much. Now he's in protected custody. My other theory is that he flipped to keep himself from going back to prison.

What this is, is nothing more than a mob hit. His car was found in melrose park nobody there, he is old enough to have worked under Joseph Ferriola and his crew. Now the Ferriola crew was the alleged crew that killed Anthony and Michael Spilotro and Zizzo could have been there. In the indictment the murders of the Spilotro bothers come into question. So the Outfit decided to get rid of him so just in case he testified they could save the other bosses.

If it were a mob hit, he would have been found, that's how they work, the mob likes to make beautful displays of their handy work to warn other people, so that's obviously not the case. Someone else could have killed him and hid it, but there would be no reason unless it was some punk out to get some glory or maybe a gang initiation, though you'd think they'd pick a more imposing target than a 5 foot tall 71 year old. I suppose it's all fine and well that he could be with the FBI, but it has been a very long time and I'm thinking someone in his family would know and since he's my grandfather and I know nothing... I'm thinking that is also not the case.

It could have been a hit because Hoffa was never found and many others to. And Now that todays been the first day of the Family Secrets Trial and his name has not been on the list "people to testify" Its more logical he has died. And if it was a punk out for gang initiation I hope he gets whats coming to him. All I have to say is im behind these people in court all the way. The FBI is trying to get these Old Guys in Jail that is the whole point of the RICO act when I read it what it said to me was "All Italians Should be inprisoned" Me being Italian that affends me. A criminal Organization what its saying is a couple people who have been in jail at least once cant see each other no more. They known each other for there whole life and since they were little I think it stereotipical for the FBI or any Government agency to assume any Italian is a crinimal and assuming they can arrest a group of men elderly or young and call them mafia and sentence them to life. But if Zizzo is dead it is most likely because of his line of work.

The "Family Secrets" trial was a joke. Calabrese Sr. is a total nitwit & deserves what he got. Every other defendant got the hot dog.
As far as I'm concerned the rest of the trial was a complete railroad job. Everyone involved with the case from the judge to the jury knew what the outcome was going to be from day one.
Scoop...i hope you get some sort of answers as to what happened to your Granfather.

I'm not sure I care what they do to each other. History will tell us they have plagued this country and lawenforcement for years, but I think he's dead. dumped somewhere.

That info about Sarno being behind it is BS. Most high ups are making him out as he's more then he is. They get certain guys talk, so they pumped the fake story out there. Difronzo did it, for three reasons.$, getting his brother a higher spot, & he was unsure LT was tuff enough to take life.

Take out TZ, Marco d'amico gos to #3, Andriacchi #2. Greedy Peety gets a capo spot,

The fake story bout Sarno & TZ, are just like the fake stories bout Sarno collecting from Caruso. It's all to make the FBI's job tuff

Scoop, this was not a typical hit if that is what it was. Your Dad had guys loyal to him. They had to let them suspect he bolted, this was a loyal job.

I don't find it odd the new #2 runs the area your Dad was last going to either. It sucks for u, but your Grandpa sent many on the same ride.

I was a PI for a while, if you want I can help you put the he bolted rumors to rest if you like. Just post a email.
