Ducarme Joseph was found shot to death on the streets of Montreal hit several times in the upper body. Joseph was the founder of the Montreal street gang called the 67s street gang and was considered by police to be the most influential and powerful street gang leader in the city with a long criminal record. The 46 year old street gang leader was believed by many including authorities to be the get away car driver in the murder of Nick Rizzuto Jr the son of former Montreal mafia boss Vito Rizzuto. Nick was killed back in 2009 near the offices of Antonio Magi who was also believed to be involved in the hit.
Vito Rizzuto died in the middle of an array of mob related murders which many believed to be his revenge for the murders of his father Nicolo and son Nick Jr along with the attack on his crime family by a rival faction possibly backed by the Ndrangheta. The latest hit on Joseph may very well be the new leaders of the mafia in Montreal showing their loyalty and finishing the vengeance of their deceased mob boss.
The bloody Montreal mafia war that began with the failed attempt to destroy the Rizzuto crime family while Vito was doing a prison stint in the U.S. has continued to see the body count rise. It is still yet unknown if the hit on Joseph was indeed carried out or authorized by the new mob leaders but the tracks of vengeace are definitely one of the authorities top leads.
