Joe Di Maulo, Montreal mobster, found dead in

A famous Montreal mobster was found dead Sunday evening in the driveway of a Quebec home.

Police said the body of Joseph “Joe” Di Maulo was discovered on the driveway of a home in Blainville, Quebec (about an hour’s drive north of Montreal) at the age of 70.

“He was known to be the No. 2 in the Mafia. He’s been involved in the business since the 70s,” CTV’s Montreal Bureau Chief Genevieve Beauchemin told Canada AM on Monday.

He is also the brother-in-law of Raynald Desjardins, charged with the 2011 murder of former Bonanno crime family boss Salvatore Montagna.

The Canadian Press reported that Quebec provincial police are now referring to Di Maulo’s death as a homicide as the mobster was “gunned down” suffering a minimum of two gunshots to the head.

Reputed mob boss Vito Rizzuto returned to Canada in early October after serving five years in a Colorado prison on charges of racketeering and conspiracy.

While he served his sentence, which was related to the triple murder of three New York City Mafia members, both his father and son were murdered in Montreal.

The murders fueled speculation that the Montreal Mafia was in the middle of the power struggle, and provoked discussion about whether known members would be changing allegiances.
