Adjust Comment Print

The New York City Police Department has announced an arrest in the slaying of reputed Gambino family mob boss Francesco Cali.

Cali didn't think Comello was worthy of associating with a woman in his family, the sources added.

Francesco Cali was shot and killed Wednesday night in Staten Island. The Gambino crime boss was assassinated outside Sparks Steakhouse in Manhattan in 1985.

Cali allegedly had strong ties to the Sicilian mob.

53-year-old Cali, who's also known by the nickname "Franky Boy" was shot several times Wednesday in the Todd Hill neighborhood of Staten Island. When Cali tried to hide behind his vehicle, Comello allegedly ran him over. He was reportedly picked up at a New Jersey home by U.S. Marshals.

"We are very confident that he will be charged with the murder of Mr Cali", upon the suspect's handing over to NY, the official said.

"The investigation is still very, very young", the official said.

But of course we prefer to work with the ecosystems of Google and Microsoft", he reportedly said, according to a translation. Various company's have attempted and failed to break the duopoly by launching phones with different operating systems.

Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea says that he and his NYPD constituents are unclear as to Carmello's motives, but they're sure it's him in the surveillance footage.

Comello's Facebook page said he once attended Tottenville High School on Staten Island. Comello received a parking summons for his truck on Staten Island the day of the killing, Shea said.

Multiple press accounts since 2015 said Cali had ascended to the top spot in the gang, although he never faced a criminal charge saying so. His wife is the niece of purported mobster John Gambino.

He had been considered a unifying figure in the years after then-Gambino boss John Gotti, "Dapper Don", was convicted of murder and racketeering in 1992 and sent to prison for life, CNN affiliate WPIX reported.

Police didn't believe that was the case, and some law enforcement felt early on this was connected to a personal beef.

The suspect's fingerprint reportedly was lifted from Cali's vehicle. I can't wait to see ALL the apologies to my Uncle and his Grandchildren!
