That's why people talk about them.

FBI Launches Major Probe Into Philadelphia Mob


The FBI has tripled the size of its squad in Philadelphia and has brought in a well-seasoned supervisory agent from New York to oversee what appears to be the formation of a new Organized Crime Strike Force, reliable sources have told Cosa Nostra News.

One of the operation's key goals is reportedly to nail Philadelphia Cosa Nostra boss Joseph "Uncle Joe" Ligambi and his top associates for three unsolved gangland hits in the city. Those murders were committed while Joseph "Skinny Joey" Merlino, reputed official boss, and former consiglieri/Ligambi nephew George Borgesi were in prison.

The Fed's also are aggressively investigating a mobster considered Ligambi's chief shooter from back when "Uncle Joe" was tasked with holding together a badly battered and fractured Cosa Nostra family. That was the backdrop against which the three murders, now intensely being scrutinized, were committed.

That shooter is reputed Philadelphia captain Michael "Mikey Lance" Lancelotti, 51, who reportedly now assists in the running of the family's daily operations after recovering from cancer. Lance was a shooter, likely for both Merlino and Ligambi.

Lancelotti "never came up in any of the major RICO trials that put lots of guys away, " a source told CNN.

Merlino inducted Mikey Lance in the 1990s, bolstering Merlino and Stevie Mazzone's efforts to win the family war with Sicilian-born boss John Stanfa, who is now serving life for racketeering and murder.

Gangster Report noted that it was told by a retired FBI agent that, “We heard Lance was possibly one of the shooters in the Joey Chang hit and Merlino planned it and was in a car nearby monitoring things."

Ligambi, when he rose to acting boss after Merlino went away, created a tight-knit inner circle that included longtime Philadelphia mobsters such as Joseph Massimino, Gaeton Lucibello, and Lancelotti.

The three hits said to be part of a larger probe into the re-surging Philadelphia crime family are John "Johnny Gongs" Casasanto, a young mob soldier who couldn't keep it in his pants and was reportedly seeking to join New York's Gambino crime family; Ronnie Turchi, hit in 1999; and Raymond “Long John” Martorano, who was whacked in 2002.

Members of organized crime in Philadelphia have indeed kept law enforcement busy in recent months, as reported.

Federal, state and local law enforcement entities are indeed surveilling mobsters as they move in and out of the new social club on 11th and Jackson. They are monitoring the group's moves into Philadelphia's booming home building/home renovation business, which has fueled the vibrant construction work seen across the city.

Ligambi is back in harness, serving as acting boss, with Stevie Mazzone reportedly serving as underboss.

Beneath the seemingly tranquil surface there may be as many as four factions vying for control, with the very visible and very active Borgesi making moves all over the place.

Today, the crime family has about 30 to 40 members on the street; plus several new members, who were recently inducted. The Philly mob hasn't been this large since the bloody days of Nicky Scarfo's reign.

The FBI's Philadelphia organized crime squad was enlarged from around 3 to 4 agents, to 12, and a veteran supervisor was brought in from New York. Sources wouldn't identify him for non-disclosed reasons, but another source said the agent is believed to be a former head of the Gambino squad.

This enlargement of the FBI unit to monitor the Philadelphia Cosa Nostra clan, which interestingly hasn't been named after a boss since the violent Nicodemo "Little Nicky" Scarfo era is likely part of a new Organized Crime Task Force that would include state and local law enforcement agencies, as well, sources said.

This follows a few moves made by elements of the Philadelphia-based Cosa Nostra clan that raised the Mafia family's profile in both media reports as well as media reports. The Philadelphia mob recently opened up a social club and also inducted five new members last October. News of the ceremony was quickly leaked to the media.

"Borgesi is in full-throttle," said one source, noting that he's been very visible lately, visiting the club on 11th and Jackson Streets. He's also been holding meetings there supposedly with gangsters from other regions of the country.

"Uncle Joe" has been seen going to the club less frequently.

Still, all of them are under major surveillance, sources said, with one noting, "The Feds are watching them like a hawk."

Cosa Nostra Clan Made Five

Among the newly initiated members of the crime family (two appear specifically to have been put forth by Borgesi, sources told Cosa Nostra News) are:

George Borgesi's younger brother, Anthony;

Steven "Handsome Stevie" Mazzone's brother, Salvatore "Sonny" Mazzone;

David "Dave" Salvo, one of two brothers who served as Borgesi's emissaries while he was on parole (David also allegedly was Ligambi's driver for a time, earlier in "Uncle Joe's" tenure as boss);

Anthony Accardo, a violent associate who was one of about a dozen local mobsters indicted in 2000 on a slew of racketeering charges.

Accardo pleaded guilty but refused to testify against reputed mob boss Joseph "Skinny Joey" Merlino and other mob members.

This is likely a key reason he got his button. As prosecutors said at the time, Accardo had bolstered his street cred exponentially and is now viewed by area gangsters as "a stand-up guy."

"He will be in a perfect position to step right back into these criminal actions" when he gets out of prison, the prosecutor predicted.

Ligambi, 72, is known as the peaceful Don who cooled down flaring tempers and stabilized a crime family riven by decades of strife and rampant violence that began with the spectacular shotgun murder of Angelo Bruno in 1980 and continued on through the regimes of Nicodemo "Little Nicky" Scarfo, John Stanfa, and Ralph Natale, then Joseph "Skinny Joey" Merlino, who, along with the family's young turks, had fought an open war against boss Stanfa for control. (Natale has been described as a front boss for Merlino when Merlino went off to prison.)

Ligambi, part of the Scarfo gang, also had ties to Merlino's father and showed he had the chops to be boss and keep the family together. Ligambi gets kudos (ironically from both law enforcement and the Five Families) for stabilizing the troubled Philadelphia-South Jersey branch of the American Cosa Nostra, thereby ending the violence.

He also revived the crime family, which was close to extinction.

I don't think I ever read or heard that Lancelotti was a 'chief shooter' for Ligambi. I don't think I ever read or heard his name linked to the Gongs, Martarano hits?? Is this accurate?

Keep reading about the family inducting 5 new guys. I would guess there's probably more. They can induct guys any time any where. You don't think merlino made some guys down Florida or jersey. Reading about the Colombo family in the late 80tys there would be inductions every month 1 2 guys every 2 weeks. I bet today they have more made guys on the street since scarfo was boss. Good or bad.

A molotov cocktail was attempted to be thrown threw a South Philly window this morning. Doesn't mention any mob ties. But figure worth mentioning. The house was on Beachwood, right off of Wolf St.

Yeah Ivy, I saw this also but didnt feel it was worthy of being posted since I did not see it backed up by anyone I consider credible since this guy has posted multiple bullshit stories.

Now it very well could be true, but I am skeptical due to his track record.

Don't know if he can make guys by himself like that. I mean he very well could, but guys he's wanted inducted were supposedly inducted in Philly ceremonies when he first came home, so... But it may have been proven by some of the names of the suspected new made guys. Guys like Anthony Accardo are guys Merlino probably would have pushed to be inducted. There are a few others like that as well, which goes to show the guys Joey want inducted are still in South Philly and are inducted in South Philly.

I imagine Philly has to run prospects by NYC.

Anyone know what Philly's cap is?

60?

100?

Also lot closer to 60 than 100, I'm sure. I don't think they'd hit either though. I've read they were at around 70 at their peak. Seems 50 or so have been the norm in more recent years.

Merlino plays outside the rules...I really doubt he would have any issue with going over a cap limit set by NY.

Hell, even in NY they were skirting the rules when it came to made members. Making guys during the ban on new made guys...having guys made in NJ then transferring...and also not waiting for a member to die before another is made.

So, I don't think its too far fetched to assume Merlino wouldn't care about that.

Thx Ivy.

Good point Blackjack, although they are generally exceptions to the rule. NY still has 'rules' and 'caps' it generally adheres too.
I doubt NY are capping Philly, do we know if they have to run prospects by NYC?

Ivy spot on with the 60 figure..at the end of the scarco era when the sentences came down in 89 for the Rico case.. The family had excluding those that cooperated 51 soldiers with Harry riccobene and mr miggs pollina counted among them . Four capos and the administration. So just about 58 at the time . I am not counting active or retired just total button men beside those that cooperated . So the total amount would have been with the witnesses around 63

Guy on the left is Kim Kardashian's father. Second from left is Jonah Hill. Guys in the middle are Bob Barker and his Puerto Rican toyboy Benicio. Guy on the right is Lennie from Of Mice and Men.

I don't know who the guy second from right is, but going by the hair it's either Ed Harris or Joe Pantoliano.


In my thoughts, I use the technique of positive visualization.

Seems to me with all the talk of the family rebuilding and strengthening in the Philadelphia area the families interests in the southern and northern ends of New Jersey would also increase. What is the status of "Scoops" crew in Newark? Is it prevalent in Essex County alone? The city of Newark? Do they still have social clubs in the county? Rumors have always been the "Spilingese Social" club on Adams Street is a family club. Thoughts? Who's in the crew? Beeps? Nicky O? Thanks.

Yeah Ivy, I saw this also but didnt feel it was worthy of being posted since I did not see it backed up by anyone I consider credible since this guy has posted multiple bullshit stories.

Now it very well could be true, but I am skeptical due to his track record.


Greetings and salutations, all. Was trying to find info on the guy assaulted in prison over Mob Wives and I happened upon this... I am curious what stories I wrote that were bullshit.

I am not posting here to defend myself -- but someone here says I have written "multiple bullshit" stories... Now I sincerely believe "Our critics are our friends." I wrote quite a few breaking-news stories that proved to be accurate. I wasn't going to list them here, but I will add one link: http://www.cosanostranews.com/p/exclusives.html

Go toward bottom, where it says Cosa Nostra News Exclusives....

I'd appreciate knowing what you refer to as multiple bullshit is all....

Sincerely,

Ed Scarpo
