The murder of Dino Fanucci
Posted in the Rising Sun Forum

I spent my summers in Rising Sun and I remember Dino Fanucci. Back in the mid 90's, my grandmom told me that Dino had been murdered. I just got thinking about it again and I was wondering the who, what , where, when, how and why questions about his murder. If anyone remembers anything, please post it. I can only find one thing on the internet about it. It is an appeal filed on behalf of the killer. It just said that on March 12, 1993, in Killian's Bar, few words were said between Mr. Fanucci and the gunman and Dino was murdered. Any information would be appreciated. Thanks.

Not 100% sure but I think the person who killed him pleaded insanity and might now be released. I remember the appeal and I think he won it. That was many many years ago too.
As for the incident I think it was at the bar now known as Uncle Willy's in the parking lot? Sorry do not know anymore details. Also someone please correct me if I am wrong. I remember there was coverage in the Cecil Whig but not sure of details.

Timothy Eller was the one who killed him. I often wondered if he won his appeal as well.

The killer was TIMOTHY JOHN ELLISON who cowardly shot Dino without provocation. Ellison won his appeal for a retrial: http://www.courts.state.md.us/opinions/cosa/1... , but I don't know what happened after that.

He was released several years ago and lives in Rising Sun
