Editor's Note: Pulled from an early retirement from his snug spot in the federal witness protection program, former Capo di tutti capo, Francis "Cadillac Frank" Salemme was indicted for a murder he conveniently forgot to fess up to when he supposedly played "Queen for a Day" for the FBI. In exchange for complete immunity said nefarious turncoat is to measure culpable and make a full confession of all illegal crimes committed before the "sudden change of heart" or more like the Feds offered a deal to testify against former frenemies Whitey Bulger and Steve Flemmi.

Salemme role in brokering the Gardner Heist paintings through the Genoveses family was ignored when the mobster played Canary. The 1993 murder Salemme got indicted for was done in concert with his late son Frank Jr. made mobster and an alleged drug user who according to a mafia source died of AIDS in 1995.

 ‘Cadillac Frank’ Salemme, Burlington man indicted for 1993 witness murder


The investigation into the 1993 slaying of South Boston nightclub owner Steven DiSarro ramped up Friday as a second man was charged with the murder, along with former New England Mafia Boss Francis “Cadillac Frank” Salemme.

A federal indictment unsealed Friday charges Paul Weadick, a 61-year-old plumber from Burlington, and 83-year-old Salemme with killing DiSarro, who was described as a witness in a federal investigation that was targeting the mobster and his son.

The indictment says that Salemme and his late son had a hidden interest in The Channel, a now-defunct nightclub acquired by DiSarro in the early 1990s.
