Former Colombo crime family acting boss Thomas “Tommy Shots” Gioeli claims feds are trying to frame fellow mobster Joel “Joe Waverly” Cacace with murder of NYPD cop Ralph Dols. Cacace is currently on trial for ordering Colombo family underlings to kill Dols. Tommy Shots isn’t defending Cacace from the witness stand but instead on his blog that he writes from prison. Gioeli was himself charged in the Dols murder but was found not guilty in a previous trial. He now claims Colombo mobsters Dino Calabro and Joe Competiello killed Dols on orders from former and now deceased Colombo underboss Bill “Wild Bill” Cutolo. Both Calabro and Competiello are mob rats that have testified at the trials of Gioeli and now Cacace.
Gioeli claims that the Dols murder was connected to Cutolo’s illegal businesses he was running with help of some bad cops which included dealing of drugs and steriods. After Dols was killed Gioeli said he began to hear rumors involving Dols these bad cops , Russians, steriods and more leading him to surmise that Dols hit had something to do with Cutolo. Tommy Shots says after his arrest that some cops from NYPD supplied some credible evidence that it was Cutolo who ordered the hit on Dols. Gioeli said by time this evidence was brought forward he had already known it was true and that it was Calabro and Competillo that killed Cutolo.
He claims they killed Cutolo to protect themselves as they believed he may become a government informant and could implicate them in Dols murder. It was believed Cutolo was the target of a major FBI mafia investigation and if he was convicted would turn rat because he had become too rich and soft to do a serious prison term. Gioeli said Calabro was scared that Cutolo would save his own self by handing over him and Competiello as cop killers to feds. Cutolo was just another loose end for Calabro and they killed him on the sneak says Gioeli.
