NYPD has suspect in custody of murder of Gambino boss

A suspect is in custody in connection to this week’s slaying of reputed Gambino mob boss Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali outside his Staten Island home, police sources told The Post Saturday.
The suspect, who the sources say is a 24-year-old Staten Island resident, is being questioned in connection to the Wednesday night shooting
Authorities got the suspect’s fingerprint off the license plate of Cali’s silver Cadillac Escalade SUV — which he handed to the mobster after allegedly smashing into the car, the sources said.
Cali, 53, was shot several times in front of his brick mansion in the lavish Todt Hill neighborhood at about 9:20 p.m. His wife and young children were inside, police sources told The Post.
He shook hands with the shooter before he was killed, a source said.



  1. They're going to release the suspect's name eventually I don't think it had anything to do with mob dispute I think it was a traffic incident, although the truth is Stranger Than Fiction

  2. Yeah, same here, I don't think the mob would've hit him at his house with his family watching, unless he did something really bad and had to be made an example of. Doubt it has anything to do with mob business.

  3. That's fucked up a dispute over a woman in Cali's family

  4. This guys life isn't going to be worth shit. He is lucky the law got to him first at least for now.
