The recent New England Mafia bust which netted alleged Patriarca crime family capo Edward “Eddie” Lato and alleged soldier Alfred “Chippy” Scivola along with two mob associates has also shed light on new informants. Federal prosecutors revealed during court filings that they have made members of the New England Mafia that are willing to testify against their fellow mobsters. This information was part of a motion filed in court where prosecutors were asking a judge to keep reputed capo regime Eddie Lato behind bars.

Assistant U.S. Attorney William Ferland wrote in the filing that the FBI during the course of this investigation developed addition witness some of which are made members of the New England La Cosa Nostra that will testify that the New England Mafia exist and will further testify about the activities of some of its members. These witnesses are also expected to testify to the secret initiation ceremony that is held where new members are officially sworn into La Cosa Nostra by swearing a blood oath to loyalty and to enforce ‘Omerta’ the mafia code of silence.

The recent arrest of Lato and Scivola are part of a superseding indictment that was released last week in a case that has already involved Luigi “Baby Shacks” Manocchio. Earlier this year New England mafia captain Anthony “The Saint” St Laurent admitted to the existence of the New England mob and fingered Manocchio as the former boss of the Patriarca crime family in New England. as part of a plea agreement. Now this latest filing in the Lato case states that there are more made members of the New England mob that are ready and willing to testify. Question was asked during a recent news conference if reputed high ranking New England mafia member Robert “Bobby” DeLuca or others were cooperating with the government but no comments would be made on anyone not named in the indictment said Peter Neronha Rhode Island U.S. Attorney.
