New York gangster convicted of racketeering and murder of three people escapes prison

A New York gangster who murdered three people and tried to murder two more has fled from federal custody.

Dominic Taddeo was reported to have escaped from prison on March 28, according to the Bureau of Prisons website.

Convicted of racketeering charges in 1992, the 64-year-old pled guilty to the murder of three men in mob warfare in the 1980s.

Last year, Taddeo’s appeal for compassionate release was rejected by a federal court in western New York.

Before February, Taddeo was in a medium-security prison in Florida. He was moved to a residential halfway house in that time.
