Real Housewives of New Jersey star Caroline Manzo’s family has been rumored to have had ties to the mob in the 1980′s because of how her father in law, Albert “Tiny” Manzo, was found murdered in 1983. Albert was found bound and gagged with bullet shots in his body, locked inside the trunk of a car in New Jersey back in the 80′s. His death was very “mob” like, but did he have ties to the mob?
Caroline tells the New York Daily News, “I will not give credence to the Mafia talk. He was a good man, a family man. His death remains a mystery.”
Wetpaint points out that Manzo’s murder was rumored to be linked to a suspected skimming of money from a casino in Staten Island he took part in with Gambino family soldier Peter A. Campisi, who happened to be executed in a similar fashion.
Do you believe the Manzo’s had ties to the mob despite Caroline denying the rumor?
