How the unsolved Dandas St. assassination of Natale Brigant in Act 1 of a Canadian mob dynasty

A stranger struggled to understand the term Nutley Brigant as he was bleeding on the wet pavement of Dundas Street West near Howard Park in the west end.

Not long after this, 30-year-old Brigante remained silent.

He was bled by being shot twice in the waist.

According to 20-year-old Eugenio Rocco Scopelli, who was on the same boarding as Brigant, he ran into the street during a storm on the night of Tuesday, May 24, 1955.

According to Scopality, “I’m going to Dundas Street”

Brigante had a stabbing knife, which he held in a sheath attached to his belt.

Later, neighbors heard a “pop, pop, pop” sound through the noise of the storm.

The body was lying near his body.

It was a sad ending to what was a huge success story for Brigant, who had $ 3,000 in his savings account, as a house painter, and despite his fancy new model car he spent his family and money in Calabria Sent back his fiancée.

The following Saturday in Niagara Falls, Brigant was to become the best man at his brother’s wedding. This was postponed to allow for the planning of his funeral.

Within a day, 24-year-old Paolo Vialy was arrested in Wayland, where he was checked into a hospital named “John Pincocchio”. He had a slash wound near his ribs.

The police were informed that he had run away with his bewildered girlfriend.

Wyllie told police, through an Italian-speaking officer, that he had fallen with a knife while fishing in the Welland Canal.

“I did it myself,” he said.

Wylie displaced from Sinopoli, Calabria, Canada, 3 earlier years ago, about a 40-minute drive from the hometowns of Brigant and Scopeliti. He claimed that he did not know Brigant – but Scopelli said they had once become friends.

Wylie was not known by the Canadian police before Brigante was shot and killed.

The police put a pillow over his head before taking him into custody on charges of murder. For the police lineup for witnesses who saw a man fleeing the shooting scene, Kachhikalam had to save his identity.

The large pillow scene on Wyllie’s 130-lb body prompted a Toronto Telegram headline author to write: “He’s in the bag.”

Wyllie chose G. Arthur Martin as his lawyer.

Martin was already a legal legend. The 1953 McLean magazine article had the subject of self-graduation, “Their customers never hang out.” He would eventually defend more than 60 accused murderers, and none of them were ever convicted of murder.

Martin suggested that Scopelli was the real killer, slamming him in front of a jury as “an unthinkable lie”.

It took Martin just two hours to win his independence.

This was the last time Wylie was called before a judge for such a serious charge, but he would soon become famous to the police after he married Hamilton’s Lupino family.

His new father-in-law Giacomo Lupino was considered by police to be the leading leader of the ‘Nabrangheta, Calabrian Mafia’ in Canada.

In the late 1960s, RCMP separated recording equipment among the tomato plants of the Luisino in their Cozy’s backyard, from a brick house in Hamilton.

Those recordings caught Lupino talking about a variety of things – from the Maple Leafs’ prolific playing style to Lupidino’s dismissal assessment of a man’s dismissal of Eddie Scheck.

“I told him what kind of half-man he is?” Lupino said in tapo. “If I want to do something out of fear, I will go and drown myself in the lake.” I told him that if a man is weak and has to do things due to fear and these things are wrong, then it is better for him to kill himself.

“I told him that if they want, kill me.” because I say so. And if they should kill me, I will always spit in their face and tell them that they are To cheat (Infamous)

In the tape, Wylie had a strange feeling while gossiping with her new father-in-law. According to the police summary of the conversation, on one occasion, the RCMP bug imprisoned Lupino, saying “she is going to warn a man in Toronto to stay away from a married woman who has three children.”

Secret recordings of Lupino’s tomato plants were later used by the RCMP to help prove the existence of Canada’s’ Nadrangheta, or Calabrian mafia.

In one of the recorded accounts, Lupino revealed to his wife that he and his son Jimmy had recently met with Stefano Magadino, one of the heads of the Buffalo mob in Toronto about the Paul dacoit.

“Magadino told Jimmy that he should be very careful if he went or treated Paul Volp, because he would cheat on you or see that you were sent to prison. Magadino also mentioned that Volpe also told him Was cheated once, ”Lupino said.

Wylie next moved to Montreal. In 1975 – two decades after Brigante’s death – in 1975 the Quebec Crime Commission identified him as the director of the Canadian branch of one of North America’s largest criminal families. “Paolo Vialy is 1,000 men,” a heavy-security witness told the investigation.

Wyllie was arrested while dining at Toronto’s Windsor Arms Hotel and went to Montreal to testify for questioning. He was jailed for one year for refusing to take the side of a witness.

When police officer Robert (Shotgun) Menchard rented an apartment above his ice cream shop / pool hall in the Saint-Leonard district of Montreal and secretly recorded conversations from 1970 and 1976 to Paolo Vialy’s criminal organization Damaged a lot.

Excerpts from those conversations were played at the Quebec Crime Commission to show the relationship between Italian and North American criminals.

Wally’s power was never the same. He was shot and killed while playing cards in his ice cream shop in 1978 during a war with rival Rizzuto crime family.

Pauzo Vialy’s two brothers were also killed in a battle with Rizutos in Montreal.

Wylie’s sons, Giusepp and Domenico, were eight and 11 years old when their father was murdered.

The survivors moved back to Hamilton, where they lived under the patronage of their grandfather Lupino.

As they grew older, they were also targeted by the police.

Dominicco Vialy was sentenced to eight years in prison in December 2018 after being found guilty of selling drugs to a police agent inside a Bonamo crime family.

Giusepp (Joe) Wylie is currently serving a 16-year prison sentence for trafficking fentanyl and cocaine.

At the time of his arrest, the RCMP stated that Domenico and Joe Vialy were organized criminals with an international reach.

According to a 2002 confidential Holton Regional Police Intelligence report, Wyllie’s sons used corruption to hang on to power, stating that Hamilton’s police officers helped the brothers avoid prosecution.

The report called Wyley a longtime Hamilton police officer “a close, paid aide”.

The “introduction / summary” of the report, based on a confidential source, reads: “Dominic VIOLI of Hamilton (son of Paolo Vialy – formerly of Montreal – deceased)” had “a number of serving officers who committed crimes and prosecution for crimes. Used to provide intelligence and support to escape. “

The report states that a Hamilton police officer is “a close, paid associate of Hamilton’s Dominic VIOLI. The heir is obvious to Burlington’s Lupino crime group. “

Hamilton and Halton police declined to comment on the contents of the report after it was received by Starr.

Dominic Wyllie was denied parole in April, as officials warned that he could be at risk of “violent incidents” if he returns to Hamilton.

The murder of Brigante in 1955 was not resolved, but officers offered three theories for the shooting.

One was that Brigant was being evacuated.

The second was that it was the culmination of tensions that arose in Calabria.

The third theory was that it was a dispute involving a woman who could explain why Brigant was shot in the waist.
