Francis P. Salemme Sr.
Nickname: “Cadillac Frank”
Alias: Julian Daniel Selig
Born: August 18, 1933, Boston
Francis P. Salemme Sr. was a feared serial killer Back in the 1960s through the 1990s.He was partners in the killing field with Murder Incorporated: Joseph Baron “The Animal” Barboza, Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi and James “Whitey” Bulger, as well as with John “The Butcher” Martorano, according to public accounts totaling over 100 murders.Salemme ended up being the best out of a bad bunch. In the end, there was no Cadillac for the man known as “Cadillac Frank” Salemme.The New England’s Mob hit man who rose through the ranks to become the de-facto boss of the New England Mafia, even took the power away from Providence Rhode Island which possessed it for over 30 years.
* Salemme, testified against Corrupted FBI agent: John J. Connolly Jr. , just before Salemme testified against Vincent Michael Marino, on December 14, 1999 in Marino’s second RICO trial which charges Marino in June 16, 1989, of trying to assassinate Salemme. Salemme actually received Four gunshot wounds to his body, abdominal, legs and chest area and nearly survived the hit. Marino received a hung jury on that specific charge predicate racketeering act A-2 in Counts One: RICO and Count Two: RICO conspiracy charge in the first trial in 1998. ** In the second RICO trial in 1999, on December 22, 1999, Vincent Marino received a jury decision of NOT PROVEN BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT for the June 16, 1989, Salemme attempted murder charge.However with the government’s: Assistant United States Attorney’s: Jeffrey Auerhahn and Cynthia Ann Young urging, the Court: Judge: Nathaniel M. Gorton, U.S. District Judge District of Massachusetts,Boston and Worcester, enhanced Marino‘s sentence an extra 25 years by the mere low standard of proof by the preponderance of the evidence.
*** The federal grand jury received fraudulent testimony from corrupted FBI agent: Michael J. Buckley, long after Buckley received cash payoffs from Marino‘s enemies: Bulger and Flemmi in the 1980s through the 1990s, according to the U.S. Government’s star and highly credible witness: Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi’s September 22, 2008’s testimony against FBI agent Connolly.According to United States v. Connolly (FBI agent), 341 F.3d 16-29 (1st Cir.2003) the United States Court of Appeals For The First Circuit three judge panel found beyond a reasonable doubt that FBI agent: Connolly was part of and PROTECTED The Salemme, Bulger and Flemmi criminal organization from its enemies (Marino and Ponzo) and law enforcement.
- *On November 2, 1999 and Again on December 1999 Francis Salemme secretly Received Immunity From Both State and Federal Prosecution Before, During and After Vincent M. Marino”s Second Rico Trial in 1999 and The Government Including the Appellee (s) Assistant United States Attorney :Cynthia Ann Young Intentionally Concealed this Fact From Marino.
John “Smiley” Mele another serial killer and Big time drug dealer multi-millionaire, falsely testified against Marino concerning the June 16, 1989 Salemme attempted murder. Concealed documents: Two unidentified FBI informants working for FBI agents: DelaMontaigne and Robert Callen and possibly for agent Buckley, wore a electronic listening device and recorded Mele and Laface on four separate tapes as Mele and Laface are discussing the plan to assassinate Salemme Sr., and Salemme Jr., for ripping off their drug shipments and threatening to kill Laface and Mele if they did not pay $100,000 EACH to operate their Huge drug business. Which is continuing today.The four tapes were intentionally concealed from the 1997 investigating federal grand jury and 1998 and 1999 jury trials of Marino jurors and from Marino, Judge: Nathaniel M. Gorton and from all of Marino’s post conviction motions and appeals.
Renegade mob faction:
According to mob historian Allan May, the dual attacks were orchestrated by a renegade mob faction of the New England mafia under the leadership of new boss Joseph J.R. Russo (according to the government and unindicted coconspirator of Marino) and two powerful Alleged Capo’s his half brother Robert F. “Bobby Russo” Carrozza (Marino’s codefendant) and Vincent “The Animal” Ferrara (also according to the government an unindicted coconspirator of Marino). The Top Three Mafia leaders of the New England Mafia at the time in 1989, 24 years ago.Russo’s whose status in the mob is of icon level was elevated in rank after he alleged to have killed William “The Wild Man” Grasso and alleged to have ordered Salemme to be killed, and after the killing of ruthless Barboza in 1979.The gang war continued.The gang war started in June 16, 1989, when Salemme was shot numerous times in the chest, leg and abdominal with automatic weapons. Charged with the Shooting were: Vincent Michael Marino and Enrico “Rico” Ponzo.However the court Judge: Nathaniel M. Gorton with the government’s/Assistant United States Attorney’S: Auerhahn and Young urging substantially enhanced Marino’s sentence an extra 25 years for the June 16, 1989 Salemme attempted murder by the low standard of proof by the preponderance of the evidence. The court was precluded the facts now in PUBLIC records that three TOP ECHELON FBI informants: Mercurio with the assistance of Bulger and Flemmi set-up the June 16, 1989 Salemme attempted murder while all three were working as TOP ECHELON FBI informants for FBI agents: Connolly and Buckley under intensive Department of Justice investigation for murder.
The gang war power grab:
Soon after Salemme was released from prison in 1986, he saw an opportunity to fresh his friendships with his old pals in the New England Mafia and the Winter Hill Gang: Bulger and Flemmi.With everyone either dead of in federal prison in 1989 and thereafter Salemme made his move for the power grab, with a whole lot of fatal and brutal casualties.The feud left at least two dozen or more dead from gunshot wounds and stabbings as well as car bombs. The New York crime families brokered a deal among the warring factions that ended the blood shed for now anyway.Although, not in chronological order of events and some what of flash back scenes the above and the following accounts are true, correct and complete to the best of Project Marino’s Intelligence.Raymond “Junior” Patriarca was in charge in New England, but only a figure head. The true Boss undisputed was Joseph J.R. Russo, but not for long as they were caught on audio tape extorting a very rich and very popular bookmaker named Doc Sagansky, a real live dentist turned a multi-millionaire bookmaker, for a half a million dollars.The good doctor however stood strong and never cooperated with the government concerning the alleged extortion even to the point of being in prison on a medical respirators and other serious machines for his illnesses as the record so supports.Salemme was now in full charge of course he had to convince about 30 mobsters that he was actually in-charge through the ultimate act of persuasion Murder. Just before Marino was released from prison Salemme had an impressive hit list of at least 30 plus non believers, that now have no vote to believe in him or not as they are forever silenced.
Francis Salemme Sr. a feared serial killer speaks
(News 5 Boston)
Salemme teamed up with James “Whitey” Bulger
and Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi
and together with their prose for killing and which leads to the art of persuasion and the multi-million dollars in bank rolled on hand 24 hour 7 days a week with their tentacles reaching into all three branches of government: Bulger’s
brother was the Senate President for over 17 years, his other brother was a Magistrate Judge and Clerk of Courts. Flemmi’s
nephew was second in charge of INS and his blood brother was Boston Police bomb Squad homicide detective. Their friends in the Boston FBI
agents: John Connolly
, Michael Buckley
, Callen, James Ring
, H. Paul Rico
, Dennis Condon,John Morris
, Nick Gianturco, John “Agent Orange” Newton, James Greenleaf, Ahearn just to name a few. They also had numerous Boston Police detective and Massachusetts State Police high ranking members all on their payroll according to Bulger’s
Lieutenant Kevin “Two Weeks” Weeks
and others on public record.
Corrupt agents on the payroll:
This crew was hard to beat no matter who you were. However, Bulger
assistance made cash payoffs payoffs to FBI
and others in the 1980s through the 1990s for the agents to protect their criminal organization from its enemies (Vincent Marino
and Enrico “RICO”Ponzo
, among others) and law enforcement investigations against them.FBI
fraudulently testified against Marino
in front of the investigating Federal Grand Jury in 1997in Marino’s
First 1998 RICO trial and second 1999 RICO trial after he received cash payoffs from Marino’s
according to the government’s star and highly credible witness: Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi’s
testimony on September 22, 2008 which convicted FBI
of murder and Connolly
is now serving 40 years in State prison for.Without FBI
fraudulent testimony in front of the 1997 federal grand jury concerning specifically the June 16, 1989 Salemme attempted murder, Marino
would NOT be serving an extra 25 years in Federal Prison.Event though the JURY marked NOT PROVEN BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT on December 22, 1999 Verdict Sheet that MARINO
DID NOT ATTEMPT TO MURDER SALEMME.
on trial NOW states the same that he and Flemmi
had numerous law enforcement agents on their payroll to protect their criminal organization from its enemies and law enforcement investigations etc.With the support and partnership of Flemmi
, Salemme became the de facto boss of the New England mafia.His reign would be short-lived, however, minus a few bullets and other conspiracies to murder him made him not so high profile a person as he was once brazen before, he was now more careful as he knew there were powerful people out their that didn’t care that he killed over 30 people to take the leadership over, they felt the dead person just had a bad day and was unlucky.In early 1995, a federal grand jury handed up a thirty-seven count indictment against Salemme, Bulger
, and others.In early 1995, a Federal Grand Jury being monitored by FBI
agent John J. Connolly’s
friends still active agents in the FBI
and Edward Quinn, the federal grand jury handed up a thirty-seven count indictment against Salemme, Bulger
and others charging them with assorted murders, attempted murders, conspiracies to murder, extortion, racketeering, racketeering conspiracy, gambling etc. The indictment describes also an unusual occurrence the New England Mafia teamed up with the Winter Hill Gang
(aka) The Boston Irish mob) which had been extinct nation wide. Via: through the art of killing.See Paddy Whacked by T.J. English, in support of this historic and current events nation wide. Which triggered most of the Irish Gangsters to use the Law Enforcement badge as their criminal organization.
Also some in the Irish mob became Judges, lawyers, Federal and State Prosecutors, as well as State and Federal Agents.Salemme, Bulger
were tipped off by FBI
to flee concerning their indictment that FBI
and Quinn was closely monitoring.Salemme left for Florida, and Bulger
left for California. Flemmi
whom though he had some time before the indictment was handed down stayed,He stayed in town a little longer and was caught by DEA and Massachusetts State Police Agents and held on a Complaint until the federal indictment was unsealed and warrant issued for the targets supra’s arrest.Salemme was arrested in Florida a year later and Bulger
remained a fugitive for over 16 years later to be arrested in Santa Monica, California. he was arrested with over 30 firearms and $850,000 in United States Currency, as well with numerous false identifications and disguises.
Secretly Received Immunity:
The Mafia’s Kingpin Serial Killer Salemme known as “Cadillac Frank” would later serve eleven years in federal prison on racketeering charges. And another two years for obstruction of justice for failing to account for another killing of a man whom the killing involved Mark Rossetti
(whom later told federal investigators that Salemme held out on the Dissaro murder when he debriefed with law enforcement agents in November 2, 1999, just before he took the Federal Witness stand against Marino
on December 14, 1999, Salemme already possessed IMMUNITY from prosecution of Both State and Federal Governments, which triggered Assistant United States Attorney Jeffrey Auerhahn
to lie on RECORD in Marino’s
second RICO trial in December 14, 1999, by specifically stating that Salemme did not possess immunity and that the government was NOT going to give him immunity from prosecution knowing Salemme was already immunized from both State and Federal Prosecutions.While incarcerated, the mobster learned that both Bulger
had been working as informants and had fed information about him to the FBI.That revelation was a turning point for Salemme, who soon agreed to be a witness against his two former FBI
TOP ECHELON informant friends Bulger
as well as against FBI
. Salemme’s also helped convict Connolly
of corruption and other racketeering charges. Connolly
, 341 F.3d 16-29 (1st Cir.2003).
Federal witness protection program:
In exchange for helping the government, Salemme was granted Witness Protection Program and the FBI”s
little secret for Salemme NEVER TO HELP MARINO
, by stating that Marino
did not shoot him on June 16, 1989.The U.S. Attorneys Office District of Massachusetts was also in on this little off the record secret. As Salemme admitted to Marino’s
friend of the events.Salemme was eventually released from Federal prison and is now enrolled in the Federal Witness Protection Program with a new identity and even plastic surgery.
In 2004, he was arrested again, charged with lying to federal agents about the 1993 murder of nightclub mogul Steve Disarro.Salemme Sr., (FBI
informant) Salemme Jr., (Dead in 1995) Mark Rossetti
informant) Jack Salemme, (FBI
and DEA informant) Stephen Flemmi
informant) were all part of the murder.No one was charged with the murder as it was done by all FBI
and DEA informants.Prosecutors believed that Salemme’s son, Frank Jr., and Salemme’s brother Jack were part of the hit on DiSarro and helped Frank Salemme Sr., dispose of the body of DiSarro. Salemme’s son died in 1995, denied any involvement in the murder.On July 16, 2008, however, the elder Salemme pleaded guilty to perjury and obstruction of justice in the case and was sentenced to five years in prison. In exchange for Salemme helping the government, Salemme was released early from prison and placed in the Federal Witness Protection Program just like his old pal Joseph Baron “The Animal” Barboza
.Although Salemme had much more integrity than Bulger
. Not trying to justify his actions however, all Salemme testified against was a corrupt FBI
testimonies and false reports put hundreds of people away in Federal Prison, not counting how many people FBI
got killed.The other person that Salemme testified against or will testify against was the biggest informant in United States History would be James “Whitey” Bulger
,whom according to PUBLIC RECORDS worked as a TOP ECHELON FBI
informant for 30 years and also was instrumental with his information putting scores of Italian American’s away in prison for the past 30 years with his false accusations, reports and actions.Salemme is also believed to be drafting up a book and a screen play concerning his life, supra. Stay tune for the “Cadillac Frank” Strikes again Part I.
Department of Justice 200,000 pages:
Also for the first time since 1989 over 24 years later the government NOW admits it withheld well over 200,000 to 1 million pages from Marino’s 1998 and 1999 RICO trials and that the documents Marino seeks under the Freedom of Information and Privacy Act lawsuits may lead to his actual, factual and legal innocence of Count One RICO and Count Two RICO conspiracy and possibly the June 16, 1989 Salemme attempted murder, it will also show egregious gross governmental misconduct as the FBI agents: Connolly and Buckley instigated and fomented violence specifically the June 16, 1989 Salemme attempted murder and the June 1989 Grasso murder. Currently Marino is serving an extra 25 years for the June 16, 1989 Salemme attempted murder even though the JURY DID NOT CONVICT Marino of it. The United States Department of Justice when notified of this completely ignored it. SILENCE.Marino also filed two Freedom of Information Act Lawsuit concerning supra.The gang war finally ended in 1994 leaving several dozen people dead. The Boston FBI once again accomplished its goal divide and conquer, by instigating and fomenting violence. Salemme’s testimony in front of the United States Congress admits that he is in-fact a serial killer NOW on the Federal Witness protection program just like his old pal and partner in Murder Inc., Joseph Baron “The Animal” Barboza did.
