Helen Vorhees Brach Murdered Over Outfit Greed

Posted on 13. May, 2011 by in History, Organized Crime


This article was very difficult for me to write. This reluctance is largely due to the fact that it paints my father, Armando “Mondo” Fosco Sr., in a very compromising light. While I find this to be extremely painful, I also feel that, once all the facts are on the table, my father’s involvement in […]
