Arrest made in killing of reputed mobster
NEW YORK – A suspect was in custody Saturday after his arrest for the mob execution of reputed Gambino family boss Frank Cali, sources told the Daily News.
The unidentified person of interest was snatched up by the New York/New Jersey Regional Task Force three days after the mobster known as Franky Boy was murdered outside his Staten Island home, the sources said.
A source told the Daily News that the execution “appears” to be personal rather than mob business.
The suspect’s fingerprint was lifted from Cali’s car – possibly off the license plate of his Cadillac Escalade SUV, a source told the News.
The 24-year-old Staten Island resident was taken into custody in Brick Township, N.J., about 50 miles from the murder scene, sources said.
