The crime crew welcomes Anthony M. (Tony) DeStefano, author of Mob Killer: The Bloody Rampage of Charles Carneglia, Mafia Hit Man. Charles Carneglia was a stone-cold killer who fell in with the bloodthirsty John Gotti crew. As the infamous crime family rose to power with their murderous trail of sex, jealousy, greed, and revenge, Carneglia rose with them.
Mob Killer details the fascinating and often shocking story of Charles Carneglia and how he became an important gog in the crime machine of the late John Gotti. Carneglia, brother of reputed Gambino captain John Carneglia, bloodied his hands as he tried to fit in the with Gotti’s wild crew in Ozone Park, N.Y. The story of Charles is one of a strange man who could show incredible devotion to his infirm mother and then turn around and cause murder and havoc on the streets of New York. He was arrested in February 2008 and finally convicted of racketeering in 2009 which earned him a life sentence in federal prison. Charles was one of the last true believers of the mob life. He was an anachronism, the last of the loyal Mafiosi.
Mr. DeStefano has covered organized crime for over three decades. For the past 20 years he has been a reporter for Newsday in New York City, specializing in criminal justice and legal affairs. (The reference to Newsday is for identification only and the newspaper has no connection to this website.)
As part of the staff of Newsday, Mr. DeStefano has covered a number of major trials, including those of subway gunman Bernhard Goetz (1987), The Happy Land Social Club Fire (1991), reputed Gambino crime boss Peter Gotti (2003), former Bonanno crime boss Joseph Massino (2004) and the so called “Mafia Cops” (2006).
As a result of his coverage of the Massino trial, Mr. DeStefano has written the book “The Last Godfather: Joseph Massino and The Fall of The Bonanno Crime Family” (Citadel Press) which is now available in books stores such as Barnes and Nobles and online.
