Retired NYPD Detectives Accused of Mob Hits

Charged in EDNY with 11 homicides or attempted homicides were retired Detectives Stephen Caracappa, formerly of the organized crime homicide unit, and movie actor/detective Louis Eppolito, son of Gambino soldier Ralph "Fat the Gangster" and co-author of "Mafia Cop: The Story of an Honest Cop Whose Family Was the Mob."  Four or five of the murders took place when the officers were serving in the NYPD; the officers also allegedly provided information about informants and investigations.  Arrested in Las Vegas where they moved, the men also face methamphetamine charges.
