The day before Frank Bompensiro was killed he met Jimmy Fratianno at the San Francisco Hilton. Bomp was accompanied to the meeting by Chris Petti, Abe Chapman and Jimmy Styles. Jimmy knew Petti from his years of working with Bomp, he also identified Styles as "a worker for Joe Bonanno."

In an earlier discussion it was pointed out that Fratianno insisted he didn't know Joe Bonanno and went so far as to say he never met the man. In the Last Mafioso Jimmy states during one of his trips back to New York Funzi Tieri confronted Jimmy on his trips to Tuscon to see Bonanno. Jimmy denied all of course even in the face of mounting evidence that he did indeed have a cordial if covert relationship with Bonanno.

In denying knowledge of Bonanno and his sons, Jimmy was in effect protecting Bonanno from possible prosecution in connection with the murder of Frank Bompensiro. Nomatter how hard the FBI pushed Jimmy he wouldn't move against Bonanno. Why is this?

Not even the infamous note found in Bonanno's trash which read

"Call Turi, PM
Tell Turi-Thursday night
Con Semiautomatica
Scanzalora (corta) 22
Che non fa tanto rumore"

Not even the presence of other notes with the number of the phone booth where Bompensiro was killed could shake Jimmy from his protective stance. It has been established that Bomp was indeed informing not only on members of the LA family but Bonanno and his associates as well. This led to many cases lodged against the Bonanno sons and Bonanno and his nephew Vito D.

In light of all this plus the confrontation between Brooklier and Fratianno where Brooklier openly confronts Jimmy on rumors of his trying to get sanction for a new family and Sciortino hearing of Bompensiro travelling to New York to try and "rehabilitate Bonanno," the pieces fit right in with my comments on the LA family and Joe Bonanno. Neil Dellacroce is nowhere to be found in any of this and wouldn't be introduced into this for decades when Tony Fiato released his highly fictionalized account of his knowledge of these incidents.
