Stevie “the Rifleman” Flemmi continues on the witness stand today in the Frank Salemme murder trial, after admitting last week to taking part in 50 murders during his 40-year career in organized crime.
Here are some of the photos of the people and incidents that have been mentioned in the Salemme trial in US District Court. We’ll post even more Tuesday!
Most of this material comes from Howie’s three Mob books that are now on sale for Father’s Day at the rock-bottom price of $19.99 — Ratman, Rifleman and Plug Uglies. If you order today, you can get the three books, with a list price of more than $50, autographed by Howie, in time for Father’s Day.
