Suspect arrested in murder of reputed mob boss

Suspect arrested in murder of reputed mob boss

The purported head of the Gambino crime family, also known as "Franky Boy", was shot repeatedly outside his home in the NY borough of Staten Island late Wednesday.

Police have a 24-year-old suspect in custody in the slaying of reputed Mafia boss Francesco "Franky Boy" Cali in New York City, authorities said on Saturday. "We are at the beginning stages of this investigation", Mr Shea said.

This past week, a noted mobster believed to be acting boss of the Gambino Crime Family was found dead outside his private residence. Cali was shot several times, he said.

The 53-year-old Mr Cali, who was shot to death on Wednesday outside his Staten Island home, was allegedly the head of the Gambino family, one of the five Italian-American Mafia families that have historically dominated organised crime in NY and New Jersey.

Shea said police have recovered the truck but have not recovered the gun used in the murder.

Jersey Shore Online was told to contact the Staten Island District Attorney's Office but no one is available for comment.

When asked about the suspect's arrest record, Shea said he "crossed paths in some limited circumstances with the NYPD", including getting a parking ticket on Staten Island the day Cali was killed.

Cali was an associate in the Gambino family, according to court documents, when he was indicted in 2008 with more than two dozen other Gambino members for a range of alleged crimes.

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.

Cali was released after 16 months in federal prison in April 2009 for an extortion scheme.

USA media reported that Cali's killing marked the first murder of a NY mob chieftain in 34 years since the death of Paul Castellano - another Gambino family boss - by order of John Gotti, who was known as Teflon Don.
