New England Mob Boss Frank ‘Cadillac' Salemme, Associate Indicted in Connection With South Boston Club Owner's 1993 Murder

The indictment alleges Frank "Cadillac" Salemme and Paul Weadick killed club owner Steven DiSarro in 1993

Former New England mob boss Frank "Cadillac" Salemme and another associate were indicted in connection with the 1993 murder of a South Boston club owner.

Both Salemme, 83, and Paul Weadick, 61, of Burlington, were indicted on one count of murder each of a federal witness, Steven A. DiSarro, whose remains were recovered from behind a Providence, Rhode Island, mill earlier this year.

Salemme was arrested in August in connection with a criminal complaint, while Weadick was arrested Friday morning. Both are expected to appear in a federal court in Boston Friday afternoon.

The indictment alleges Salemme and Weadick murdered DiSarro to prevent the club owner from communicating with federal law enforcement officials about Salemme and others.

Salemme was the boss of the New England La Cosa Nostra in the 1990s until he was indicted on racketeering charges.

More to come.
