Mafioso Turned Snitch Claims Mob Boss ‘Quiet Dom’ Ordered the Murder of His Own Son

- By Bossip Staff

So, an ex-boss of the Italian mafia in New York, Vincent (Vinny Gorgeous) Basciano, sang like a canary in Brooklyn Federal Court yesterday when asked about the disappearance of another mobster’s son. After years of collaborating with the feds and secretly tape recording conversations, audio footage was presented as evidence in the courtroom and the truth came to light! “I understand that he’s telling me Quiet Dom killed his son,” another mobster testified …

The presumed murder of the son of high-ranking Genovese gangster Dominick (Quiet Dom) Cirillo may have finally been solved – a top mobster says the order to kill him came from the victim’s father.

Nicholas Cirillo’s fate came up in a candid conversation between ex-Bonanno boss Joseph Massino and acting boss Vincent (Vinny Gorgeous) Basciano secretly recorded for the feds by Massino.

“That came from Dom, that came from Dom,” Basciano told Massino in the January 2005 talk when asked who did in the mobster’s son.

Massino, the highest ranking Mafia rat ever to testify in a New York courtroom was asked by prosecutor Taryn Merkl to explain what Basciano meant.

“I understand that he’s telling me Quiet Dom killed his son,” Massino testified in Brooklyn Federal Court.

Authorities have long suspected Nicholas Cirillo was whacked after an altercation in the Bronx with Basciano’s son, Vincent Jr., and Bonanno soldier Dominick Cicale.

Two weeks after the clash Nicholas Cirillo, then 41, vanished on Mother’s Day 2004. His body has never been found.

High price for breaking rules

Dominick Cirillo, a former acting boss of the Genovese family who earned his nickname because he is low-key and surveillance conscious, refused to cooperate with police.

And he was evasive when questioned by a federal probation officer in 2006 about who was to blame for his troubled son’s disappearance, according to court records.

Investigators have previously theorized that the elder Cirillo, who was estranged from his son, approved the murder because assaulting a made member of the Mafia carries the penalty of death. Cicale was already a wiseguy and Basciano’s son was up for induction into the mob at the time.

But killing the son of a Mafioso would also be a death sentence. Massino acknowledged that he gave the order to kill Bonanno capo Gerlando (George from Canada) Sciascia – despite his fondness for the gangster – because Sciascia had murdered the son of a made man in Canada.

Massino gestured with his hand like a gun when he asked Basciano: “Do we have anything to do with that [Nicholas Cirillo’s murder]?”

“Absolutely not. C’mon,” Basciano shot back.

That was apparently good enough for Massino, who noted that a wiseguy could get killed for lying to his boss about a murder.

Basciano told Massino he met with Dominick Cirillo about the beef and the Genovese family “came back and apologized to me.”

Cirillo, who is on supervised release for a racketeering conviction, could not be reached for comment.

His daughter Ann Marie Caggiano, refused to come to the door of her waterfront home near the Throgs Neck Bridge yesterday, but spoke over the intercom.

Informed of the testimony, she said: “I really don’t want to talk about that.”

Yesterday, Bonanno turncoat James (Big Louie) Tartaglione was asked about the ramifications of killing a made man’s son: “You’re liable to start a war between families,” he said.

After Nicholas Cirillo vanished, there was no war.

This is some straight-out-of-a-movie type ish! Sacrifice your son to keep the heat off the entire operation? Outrageous, right? Thoughts?
