    2 Men Charged With Murder in Stabbing Death of Joseph Comunale

    Two men have been charged with murder in the stabbing death of 26-year-old Joseph "Joey" Comunale.

    James Rackover, 25, of Manhattan and Lawrence Dilione, 28 of New Jersey both face charges of second-degree murder, concealment of a human corpse and tampering with physical evidence, according to the New York Police Department. Dilione is also charged with hindering prosecution in the first degree. It was not immediately clear who is representing the men.


    Comunale was with at least five people ? two men and three women ? in the apartment at some point Saturday night into Sunday morning, according to the NYPD.

    "We've spoken to each one of them," NYPD Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said at a press conference Wednesday. "Right now, we're piecing together stories that each one has given us."

    Evidence

    On Wednesday a police dog found a body in a shallow grave in Oceanport, New Jersey, dozens of miles from where Comunale was last seen alive. The NYPD said today the deceased individual has been identified as Comunale.

    Police said today that an autopsy conducted by the Monmouth county coroner and medical examiner showed that Comunale was stabbed 15 times. There was also an effort to burn the body, and gasoline was found in the grave, which was about 1 foot deep, according to authorities.

    A man provided detectives with information that led them to Comunale's body, police said.

    A Mercedes-Benz believed to have been used to transport the body to New Jersey was being examined for forensic evidence, according to ABC-owned station WABC-TV.

    A police search warrant of the location where Comunale was last seen alive has recovered potential evidence in the case.

    "We uncovered a substantial amount of blood evidence inside the building, inside plastic bags that were downstairs through the garbage chute. [In the bags] were his clothing," Boyce said during a press conference Wednesday.

    Police also discovered blood in the apartment where the party was hosted.

    Meanwhile, police are reviewing surveillance video from the Grand Sutton, WABC-TV reported.

    Interesting facts on James:

    - The suspect (JAMES) was born with the name James Beaudoin. Jeffrey Ruckover met the younger Ruckover three years ago at a gym and let him take his last name. When his last name was still Beaudoin, he served time in prison from 2012-2013 for burglary charges in Florida. His criminal record also includes drug possession and armed robbery charges. Once out of prison, Ruckover moved to NYC to start a new life, which is when he met Jeffrey. “Jeffrey treated James as the son he never had and allowed him to formally use his name,” the Daily Mail stated.

    - “Jeffrey was on the 32nd floor and James on the fourth floor,” Dietl told the publication. “They first met, I believe, at a health club about three-and-a-half years ago. Jimmy moved into the apartment about a year ago. Jimmy changed his name to James Rackover because Jeffrey liked this kid so much.”

    A lawyer for the younger Rackover verified the name change with CBS, but said he “didn’t know whether the jeweler had adopted him.”

    Many have speculated that the two Ruckover men were gay lovers, and Jeffrey may have called James his son to keep it a secret.

    - Though a motive has not been announced by authorities, sources said “Comunale rejected the advances of one of the men inside the apartment,” according to the Daily News.
    A close friend of Comunale told Heavy he was not gay, and “definitely wouldn’t have played along.”

    - Comunale had been hanging out with friends in the city on Saturday, but separated from them at some point in the night. He reportedly met the suspects and three women whom he later attended the party with, at Gilded Lily nightclub in Chelsea.

    - The group reportedly partied into the early morning hours of Sunday, and sources told the NY Post that they were using cocaine and that authorities thought steroids were also involved.

    This whole story sounds like it should be on the Lifetime Movie Network.

    I'm still not sure I completely understand everything.
    Sounds like they were all getting together for some big old orgy.

    It is a convoluted story for sure. Perfect for Lifetime.

    And the Lifetime saga continues... http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/arti...s-silence.html

    "I can promise you Jimmy isn't gay. Did he travel to New York to turn tricks with older gay men? For the right amount of money, Jimmy would definitely do something like that.

    NEW YORK -- A third person has been arrested in connection with the stabbing death of a Connecticut man who vanished last month after a party at a luxury New York City apartment.

    Investigators have been working to determine who killed 26-year-old Joseph Comunale, of Stamford, Connecticut. His body was found in a shallow grave in New Jersey a few days after he disappeared.

    The New York Police Department said Tuesday that 29-year-old Max Gemma, of Oceanport, New Jersey, has been arrested on charges of hindering prosecution and tampering with evidence.

    Let?s be very clear. he was not involved in any homicide. He was not involved in desecrating Mr. Comunale?s body, and they didn?t charge him with that for the simple reason it didn?t happen, and they know it didn?t happen,? defense attorney Mark Bederow said of the charges against Gemma, CBS New York reports.

    James Rackover, 25, of New York City, and Lawrence Dilione, 28, of Jersey City, N.J., were arrested last month on charges that initially included murder. But they were arraigned only on charges of concealing a corpse, tampering with evidence and hindering prosecution in the death.

    Authorities said Comunale was last seen alive at a party at Rackover?s Manhattan apartment complex last month. Police said the victim?s bloodied clothing, sheets and towels were found in plastic bags that had been thrown down the building?s garbage chute. The criminal complaint filed for Rackover and Dilione said Dilione led authorities to Comunale?s body, which was found stabbed 15 times and partially burned.

    The complaint also cites an unidentified witness who saw Rackover allegedly placing a large duffel bag into the trunk of a black vehicle with tinted windows on Nov. 13. Investigators tracked a car traveling to New Jersey the same night and back to Manhattan early Nov. 14. Surveillance images captured Rackover driving what appeared to be a black Mercedes into a garage nearby his apartment building, parking and leaving the garage.

    Cadaver dogs later ?alerted? on the car?s trunk area, the complaint says.

    The complaint says a black 2015 Mercedes Benz is registered to Jeffrey Rackover, who also lives in the complex, but in a different apartment. James Rackover told investigators Jeffrey is his father. A family friend told CBS New York that Jeffrey Rackover, a celebrity jeweler whose clients reportedly include Melania Trump, adopted the ?troubled? younger Rackover and ?took him under his wing.?

    The younger Rackover?s lawyer told CBS News his client changed his name from James Beaudoin to James Rackover with Jeffrey Rackover?s assistance.

    The lawyer, Maurice Sercarz, has said the case has ?serious problems? and will be ?vigorously? contested. He told CBS News last month the two defendants were initially booked for second-degree murder, but those charges were ?mysteriously? missing from the criminal complaint. He believes prosecutors do not have enough evidence to charge his client with murder.

    Max Gemma?s alleged involvement wasn?t immediately clear. A criminal complaint was set to be released after his scheduled appearance in Manhattan Criminal Court Tuesday afternoon.

    Max Gemma is the son of a former mayor

    So he went there to get more drugs, did the drugs, then decided to say no when he realized he had to give up some ass to get high? They decided to take some ass, then it got rough, then he got dead?

    This is from is quoted from initial statements made in NY Daily News made by Dilione that you can't find any more. Someone from Websleuth's pulled up records that there is a Mercedes registered to a Larry Dilione but possibly his father's. I will find the post.

    [Comunale?s body was discovered after a suspect in his case allegedly told police Comunale?s whereabouts, the Daily News reports, stating that the suspect allegedly drove Comunale?s body to the makeshift grave site in HIS Mercedes-Benz.]

    This is from a very early article. Apparently Dilione confessed to driving his Mercedes-Benz that we know for a fact he or his father owns. People Magazine usually gets their facts straight, so this apparently is straight from Law Enforcement and reported to the Daily News at the time.

    This picture is a Google image search of Dilione's family house, don't know when it was taken but I did a photo montage of a 2015 Mercedes class e, one stated used for body transport and pasted it next to the car in front and they pretty much match. Sooo.. Also Bo Dietl said he didn't know if Jeffrey owned the Mercedes

    *From article*
    [Dietl said he did not know the young man's real name and was not sure if the Mercedes Benz he was driving when police arrested him belonged to Jeffrey.]

    Bo stated a 30 yr friendship and spending holidays together but states he doesn't what car he owns?? He was acting as a spokesperson, so apparently they wanted this statement out there for whatever reason, in my opinion.

    Aw, I see greens lurking...

    Earth, the system is wary of new people posting too much. It probably thinks you're a spam monster. Keep posting and the issues should clear up in about ten or so posts.

    Hi there EarthAngel, everyone would be very interested in what you have to share. As a new member, all of your posts don't show up right away but the moderators will get it straightened out as soon as they are able.

    I believe you can continue to write and post and they will show up when the mods adjust things. Welcome!

    Editing is for premium members. Under 'quick links" and "view site leaders" you will be able to PM the mods. When I need them, I usually just shout: MODERATOR!!!
