WBSM TV: Tim White on the Trial of ‘Cadillac Frank’ Salemme
Tim White, investigative reporter for WPRI in Providence, joined WBSM's Chris McCarthy to discuss the upcoming trial of Francis "Cadillac Frank" Salemme for the murder of South Boston nightclub manager Steven A. DiSarro.
DiSarro disappeared in 1993, but his remains were unearthed behind a Providence mill building in 2016.
Salemme is charged with murder of a witness.
According to investigators, Salemme was present while his son, Frank Salemme, Jr., strangled DiSarro to death. Another man, co-defendant Paul Weadick, held DiSarro's legs. The younger Salemme died of natural causes in 1995.
White details the story of how Salemme then disposed of the body with the help of the DeLuca brothers. According to court documents, Joseph DeLuca became a "made" man after disposing of DiSarro's body for Salemme, and Robert "Bobby" DeLuca is set to testify against Salemme in the trial.
