Mob capo Reynold Maragni turns rat, wears wire for feds to bust Colombos


Reynold Maragni
Reynold Maragni (c.) has turned on the Colombos, trying to gain inside info on 1999 killing of William (Wild Bill) Cutolo for the feds.
A top Colombo gangster has defected to the feds — and has gathered damaging evidence linking the beleaguered crime family’s former acting boss to a gangland murder, the Daily News has learned.
Former capo Reynold Maragni donned a wire recently to secretly tape another gangster listing the players in the 1999 rubout of William (Wild Bill) Cutolo.
CUTOLO -
WILD BILL CUTOLO
Maragni sounded like a G-man himself as he quizzed reputed soldier Vincent Manzo outside Macy’s department store in Brooklyn last Thursday.
“Was Tommy there or not there?” Maragni pressed, referring to former acting boss Thomas (Tommy Shots) Gioeli, who is charged with Cutolo’s rubout.
“Tommy was there,” Manzo replied.
The mob turncoat is not identified by name in court papers filed Wednesday in Brooklyn Federal Court, but sources confirmed Maragni is the latest Colombo capo to flip.
Maragni pleaded guilty earlier this year to passing $600-a-month in extortion money to Gioeli’s wife and was free on bail when he recorded the conversations.
He has also told the feds that he was lying when he had previously told another government informant that he could get then-Florida Gov. Charlie Crist to commute a jail sentence.
Gioeli is charged with luring Cutolo to a house in Brooklyn where he was killed. His remains, buried in a mob graveyard near Gioeli’s home in Farmingdale, L.I., were unearthed in 2008.
Maragni’s lawyer declined to comment.

  2. I knew the guy personally and always knew he was weak. He should have never been where he was. If it wasn't for the "mafia" being on a decline he would never even have been considered. They just straighten out anyone nowadays any piece of garbage it's a shame.

  3. that's the way it works now. get promoted because everyone else with any brains turns it down, put a wire on so you can have a bit of longevity in your new lucrative capo position, and enjoy the income while the feds condone and protect you. then manufacture cases to score points with your new boss. ultimately wind up in oregon, or iowa, in your new townhome. good luck.

  5. HES A DISGRACE TO WHERE HE CAME FROM, WHICH IS BATH AVENUE, PEOPLE THINK HES FROM FLORIDA BUT THATS ONLY BECAUSE HE GOT CHASED OUT OF THE NEIGHBORHOOD WHEN HE WAS YOUNGER. HE RAN FROM BROOKLYN LIKE A WHIPPED DOG. HE WAS ALLOWED TO COME BACK ONLY RECENTLY BECAUSE PEOPLE GOT OLD AND DIED. SO THEN HE CAME BACK ACTING LIKE A TOUGH GUY THINKING EVERYONE FORGOT THAT HE WAS A COWARD, NOT EVERYONE FORGOT, THERE WERE PEOPLE THAT WERE WAITING FOR THIS TO HAPPEN. NOBODY REAL EVER TOOK THIS GUY SERIOUS, HE WAS LIKE A LIVING CHARACTER OUT OF A MOVIE, ONE BIG JOKE.
