Staten Island Man Charged in Murder of Gambino Crime Boss Frank Cali

Anthony Comello, 24, of Staten Island man, has been arrested in the execution-style killing of Gambino crime family boss Frank Cali last week outside of his Staten Island home, the New York Daily News reports.

Comello was arrested down the Jersey Shore.

One motive may have been that Comello was angry that Cali was preventing him from seeing his niece.

But NYPD Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea said he hadn’t ruled out that Comello was working with others.

“Let me reiterate this (investigation) is far from over,” said Shea. “Was he acting alone? Was he acting for other people? Were others involved? What was the motive? I do not have all the answers for you.”

Police days earlier had said they were not ruling out the possibility that just-out-of-prison Gene Gotti, brother of the late John Gotti, was involved.

John McNally: Hero cop or mob associate? Perhaps both.

Federal authorities have filed court papers in U.S. District Court in Manhattan alleging that the retired New York cop, now 76, worked with the late mobster John Gotti’s hired gun Joseph Watts on extortion and money laundering crimes for years, the New York Daily News is reporting.

McNally is just named as an unindicted co-conspirator in a case against Watts, who faces charges of racketeering in connection with a number of homicides “during the mob’s go-go 1980s,” the Daily News reported.

The Daily News reports that one of the mob hits in the case involves the 1985 slaying of Gambino godfather Paul Castellano. That murder opened the door for Gotti to take over the New York mob.

“At this point, he’s really old and really sick,” a friend of McNally told the Daily News. “They are just trying to besmirch his career, to embarrass him.”

The News reported that McNally worked for  attorney F. Lee Bailey on the Simpson defense team in the 1990s and did “security” in the 1980s for Gene Gotti, John Gotti’s brother.
