REPORT: Mobster testifies about disposing murder victim’s body


As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News offers the following information published by BOSTONGLOBE.COM:

An elderly Mafia member Wednesday described helping Francis P. “Cadillac Frank” Salemme dispose of the body of Steven DiSarro in 1993, detailing how he oversaw the burial of DiSarro’s body in Providence in the dark of night and then ordered it dug up days later to remove a blue tarp Salemme feared could incriminate him and others.

Joey DeLuca, a Providence native who said he followed his brother, Bobby, into becoming a “made member” of the Mafia decades ago, testified that Salemme was a leader of the regional Mafia in 1993 when he ordered Bobby DeLuca to be ready to bury a body on May 10, 1993.

Joey DeLuca testified in US District Court that he decided to handle the task mostly on his own because he was concerned his brother, who was by then known to be a major figure in the New England mob, could end up being arrested if he was found with a corpse. His brother had “two challenged children” and Joey DeLuca said the children would be without their father if Bobby DeLuca participated.

The article goes on to state the following:

According to federal prosecutors, Salemme and his son, Frank Salemme Jr., orchestrated DiSarro’s death because they feared he would cooperate with the FBI in an ongoing investigation targeting the Salemmes. DiSarro managed the Channel, a now-defunct South Boston nightclub that Salemme and his son allegedly had a hidden interest in.

According to the report, DiSarro’s body was eventually buried at a Providence factory owned by William Ricci. More details are available by clicking the “read more” button below.
