I'm new to this game in Suffolk County. All I can say, is I know the family in a different aspect, and believe me they are very nice people. The brother really tried to turn it around for this poor soul. If everyone judged me by my family, I would have no life now.
Thanks for listening.

I remember the John Pius murder very well. I went to school with John and yes he acted weird but was a nice kid. It was so terrible when I found out that he had been murdered by Quarteraro, Ryan and Brenzick. I lived up the road from all of them. As for Daniel Collatta, I didn't know him very well, but my only keepsake of John Pius is his autograph in my 6th grade book. RIP John after all these years, cut out of life too young!

I grew up in Smithtown when the Suffolk County PD were the highest paid in the country (80s). Smithtown IS the suburbs "kay" you moron. It is a long train ride from NYC. Trust me, I've done it. And "minibikes" you're two decades late on when John Pius was murdered. I lived very close. I went to that school. I may wish I were 20 years younger, but I was not in elementary school in 1999. FACTS STRAIGHT PEOPLE!

Yeah, buddy, it was Danny Culotta who came in with his two friends and gave up Michael Qaurtararo as confessing to them about killing John Pius.

Culotta did scores of burglaries before he made 16, and when he tipped over the age he got convicted of more and went to jail.

His two buddies in that case are unmentioned in the various news articles I have read on this matter. BUT ONE OF THEM IS SAID TO BE A LITTLE JIMMY BURKE. Now they were all friends, and Danny was a big time thief, and his dead was in prison for drug trafficking. Nice group of fellows.

The VERY interesting thing about Little Jimmy is that he is now a SCPD Police Inspector, CO of the Major Crimes Bureau that works exclusively for Tom Spota. He is said to also be the Chief Investigator for DA Tom Spota. And it was the then ADA Homicide Bureau Chief Tom Spota,

Ask around and see if the john pius homicide wasn't as controversial as the Marty Tankleff case is today. And who became a star - tom spota, and he made his little cheese eater the guy who does his investigations because he MUST know how to do the right thing.

What really irks me is that some of you know I have all but accused Spota and his crew of the Kennedy assassination when the framed my son in law.

And who pops again with a neighbor who is a burglary, may be involved in a homicide, and then becomes a lying witness for Spota and Jimmy. You got it - Jimmy Boy.
Burke ratted on them all no doubt. Its only a matter of time before they all go down. Cant wait for spota to go down

John Pius was murdered on April 20, 1979. He was my cousin. Our family was close. My father had to identify his body. Those people that were convicted were the ones that did it. For whatever the reason, it Doesn't matter why. They took his life in an unimaginable way and forever changed the dynamics of our once happy family. My aunt and uncle never got to see their baby grow and have his own family. Even if he did smoke pot... what difference does that make?
