Police arrest suspect in Staten Island mob murder case

"Franky Boy", the reputed boss of New York's Gambino crime family was shot to death Wednesday night in front of his home in Staten Island, New York, by a gunman who may have staged a vehicle accident to lure him outside, dying a virtual unknown compared with his swaggering 1980s-era predecessor, John Gotti. The man in custody was described as a "conspiracy theory type" of guy the WNBC-TV.

NBC New York reported that sources say Cali's murder wasn't mob-related.

Police said surveillance video captures the shooter, and the pick-up believed to be the getaway truck.

Paris Jackson Blasts Reports She Was Placed On Psychiatric Hold
Since his passing, she has been a vocal advocate of her dad and has maintained her belief in his innocence to the public. The report also mentioned that Jackson had maintained her father's innocence following the explosive documentary.


The killing marked the first murder of a sitting mob boss in NY since the December 1985 hit on Gambino boss Paul "Big Paul" Castellano, who lived in the same neighborhood where Cali was shot.

While Shea said investigators have not ruled anything out, even probing whether Comello was hired to kill Cali, several sources said this didn't seem to be a traditional organized crime hit, believing it was something more personal. "We are at the beginning stages of this investigation", Shea said. He purportedly wielded influence both in the United States and in Italy.

Cali was taken to Staten Island University Hospital North, where he was pronounced dead.

It was Rudy Giuliani's prosecution of the Gambinos and other mob families that led to his election as New York City mayor.

Last October, 71-year-old Sylvester Zottola of the Bonanno family was shot dead while waiting in his auto for an order from a McDonald's in New York's Bronx borough. Zottola's son, Salvatore, survived an apparent assassination attempt in July outside his home, also in the Bronx.

Jersey Shore Online was told to contact the Staten Island District Attorney's Office but no one is available for comment. After Gotti went to prison, Cali eventually took over the organization. "That'll be done in the days to come and then we'll work on extradition". "But I guess old habits die hard".
