LAWYER reportedly sent by Negros Occidental Rep. Jules Ledesma, husband of Assunta de Rossi, has baffled cops for coordinating with the QCPD to "check on the condition" of two video containing footages of the alleged "rubout" committed by its anti-carnapping
The rubout of Gerard Pappa in the summer of 1980 was not unexpected.
Sources say that Rea and Red Hot each earned induction into the crime family of his choice because of their "work" in the Pappa rubout.
Ironically, Tieri, who would be found guilty of being a Mafia boss that September, had urged official family boss Gigante to order Pappa's rubout for his numerous violations of mob rules.
