During the LA family leaders early 80s trial attorneys for Dominic Brooklier, Sam Sciortino, Mike Rizzitello, Louie Dragna and Jack LoCiero, sought to subpeona Joe Bonanno to testify about the letter he wrote detailing the plot to kill Frank Bompensiro. For better than two years attorneys for the Brookler group tried to drag Bonanno into court. Contrary to popular belief Bonanno didn't retire and was extremely influential in Arizona and much of California. Events which will be detailed later show just how influential and active Bonanno continued to be after 1968 especially in California.

I question why the efforts of those on trial is not viewed as an attempt to co-operate with authorities? Confused

The letter was very inciminating, in essence it stated an intention to call Turi "Bill" and relay that Bomp had been or would be hit. It detailed the type of weapon used and the place. I will have to scan a copy of it and get it up on the site. Wink
