New England mafia ceremony was captured on tape by the feds back in 1989 with four new soldiers being inducted into the family.
The mafia induction was lead by New England mafia boss Raymond “Junior” Patriarca in Medford. Fingers were pricked, holy cards were burned, and the new mobsters vowed to kill on behalf of the Mafia. In all 20 mobsters attended and it is the first and only of its kind of recorded by authorities.
Inducted that day were Robert “Bobby” DeLuca, Carmen Tortora, Vincent Federico, and Richard Floramo. The recording of this traditional ceremony was undisputed proof that La Cosa Nostra did exist beyond the shadow of a doubt. The majority of the mobsters who attended were indicted on charges of racketeering and the tapes were used by prosecutors to prove their case. The hierarchy of the New England mob at the time went to prison.
