We are indebted to Justin Dugard for purchasing, editing and contributing to The American Mafia website the October 14, 2008, federal court testimony of Stefan Cicale. Cicale was the government’s key witness in the racketeering/murder trial of Bonanno Crime Family associate Joseph Young.
Cicale’s direct examination testimony is broken up into three web pages for ease of use. A subject index will be added in the near future.
Joseph Young was convicted of the gruesome 2005 murder of Robert McElvey at the historic – and allegedly haunted – Kreischer Mansion on Staten Island (see photo). Cicale was charged as an accomplice and decided to cooperate with federal investigators.
The testimony can be accessed through the website’s Articles menu or through this direct address: http://mafiahistory.us/a020/f_young.html
