Francis “Cadillac Frank” Salemme Sr a feared serial killer speaks
(News 5 Boston)
* 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 & chest area & nearly survived the hit. Vincent Marino received a hung jury on that specific charge predicate racketeering act A-2 in Counts One: RICO & Count Two: RICO conspiracy charge in the first trial in 1998.
** In the second RICO trial in 1999, on December 22, 1999, 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 & Cynthia Ann Young urging, the Court: Judge: Nathaniel M. Gorton, U.S. District Judge District of Massachusetts/Boston & 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 & Flemmi in the 1980s through the 1990s, according to the U.S. Government’s star & 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 & PROTECTED The Salemme, Bulger & Flemmi criminal organization from its enemies (Marino & Ponzo) & law enforcement.
*On November 2, 1999 & Again on December 1999 Francis Salemme secretly Received Immunity From Both State & Federal Prosecution Before, During and After Vincent M. Marino”s Second Rico Trial in 1999 and The Government Including the Appellee (s) AUSA:Cynthia Ann Young Intentionally Concealed this Fact From Marino.
John “Smiley” Mele another serial killer & 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 & Robert Callen & possibly for agent Buckley, wore a electronic listening device & recorded Mele & Laface on four separate tapes as Mele & Laface are discussing the plan to assassinate Salemme Sr., & Salemme Jr., for ripping off their drug shipments & threatening to kill Laface & Mele if they did not pay $100,000 EACH to operate their Hugh drug business. Which is continuing today.The four tapes were intentionally concealed from the 1997 investigating federal grand jury & 1998 & 1999 jury trials of Marino jurors & from Marino, Judge: Gorton & from all of Marino’s post conviction motions & 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 ) & two powerful Alleged Capo’s his half brother Robert F. “Bobby Russo” Carrozza (Marino’s codefendant) & 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 & 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 & abdominal with automatic weapons. Charged with the Shooting were: Vincent Michael Marino & Enrico “Rico” Ponzo.However the court Judge Gorton with the government’s/AUSA’S: Auerhahn & 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 & Flemmi set-up the June 16, 1989 Salemme attempted murder while all three were working as TOP ECHELON FBI informants for FBI agents: Connolly & Buckley under intensive Dep’t of Justice investigation for murder.
The gang war:
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 & the Winter Hill Gang: Bulger & Flemmi.With everyone either dead of in federal prison in 1989 & thereafter Salemme made his move for the power grab, with allot of fatal & brutal casualties.The feud left at least two dozen or more dead from gunshot wounds & 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 & some what of flash back scenes the above & the following accounts are true, correct & 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 & 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 & never cooperated with the government concerning the alleged extortion even to the point of being in prison on a medical respirators & 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.
Salemme teamed up with James “Whitey” Bulger
& Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi
& together with their prose for killing & which leads to the art of persuasion & 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 & Clerk of Courts. Flemmi’s
nephew was second in charge of INS & his blood brother was Boston Police bomb Squad homicide detective. Their friends in the Boston FBI
were FBI agents: Connolly
, Callen, Ring
, H. Paul Rico
, Dennis Condin, Nick Gianturco, John “Agent Orange” Newton, James Greenleaf, Ahearn just to name a few. They also had numerous Boston Police detective & Massachusetts State Police high ranking members all on their payroll according to Bulger’s
Lieutenant Kevin “Two Weeks” Weeks
& others on public record.
Law enforcement agents on the payroll:
This crew was hard to beat no matter who you were. However, Bulger
assistance made cash payoffs payoffs to FBI
& others in the 1980s through the 1990s for the agents to protect their criminal organization from its enemies (Marino
, 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 & second 1999 RICO trial after he received cash payoffs from Marino’s
according to the government’s star & highly credible witness: Stephen “The Rifleman” Flemmi’s
testimony on September 22, 2008 which convicted FBI
of murder & 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 & Flemmi
had numerous law enforcement agents on their payroll to protect their criminal organization from its enemies & law enforcement investigations etc.With the support & 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 & 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 & was unlucky.In early 1995, a federal grand jury handed up a thirty-seven count indictment against Salemme, Bulger
, & others.
In early 1995, a Federal Grand Jury being monitored by FBI
agent John J. Connolly’s
friends still active agents in the FBI
& Edward Quinn, the federal grand jury handed up a thirty-seven count indictment against Salemme, Bulger
& 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 & 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 & State Prosecutors, as well as State & Federal Agents.Salemme, Bulger
were tipped off by FBI
to flee concerning their indictment that FBI
& Quinn was closely monitoring.Salemme left for Florida, & Bulger
left for California. Flemmi
whom though he had some time before the indictment was handed down stayed a little longer & was caught by DEA & Massachusetts State Police Agents and held on a Complaint until the federal indictment was unsealed & warrant issued for the targets supra’s arrest.Salemme was arrested in Florida a year later & Bulger
remained a fugitive for over 16 years later to be arrested in Santa Monica, California. he was arrested with over 30 firearms & $850,000 in United States Currency, as well with numerous false identifications & 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 & 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 & that the government was NOT going to give him immunity from prosecution knowing Salemme was already immunized from both State & 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 & 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 & is now enrolled in the Federal Witness Protection Program with a new identity & 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
& 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
& DEA informants.Prosecutors believed that Salemme’s son, Frank Jr., & 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.Un 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 & 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 & 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 & actions.Salemme is also believed to be drafting up a book & a screen play concerning his life, supra. Stay tune for the “Cadillac Frank” Strikes again Part I.
24 years later:
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 & 1999 RICO trials and that the documents Marino seeks under the Freedom of Information & Privacy Act lawsuits may lead to his actual, factual & legal innocence of Count One RICO & Count Two RICO conspiracy & possibly the June 16, 1989 Salemme attempted murder, it will also show egregious gross governmental misconduct as the FBI agents: Connolly & Buckley instigated & fomented violence specifically the June 16, 1989 Salemme attempted murder & 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 & 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.
