Killer Of Mark Fisher
After the police found the body and the investigation began, it became a massive news story in the media. Now the police started interrogating every individual who was present at the party. Among these individuals, Albert Cleary was also there who was John’s childhood friend and neighbour. When Albert was interrogated, he was on probation due to a brutal assault. But there was not enough evidence that he had murdered Mark so he was let go.
Antonio Russo was another major suspect in this investigation. He was a college student but dropped out to become a drug dealer. Also, after he was investigated, he flew to California. But not only Antonio was a major suspect, but John was also the prime suspect. It was because John’s friends said that the bullet casings that were found near the body were from the pistol John was having.
Also, John’s girlfriend Lauren Calciano and childhood friend Cleary told the police that John had assigned Russo the task of killing Mark. Now John was arrested under many charges like Murder, Robbery, Manslaughter, and so on. Both Russo and Giuca were arrested after a year of the crime.
What Happened To The Killers?
Now a jailhouse informant told the police and jury that Giuca has confessed to the crime in front of him. He said that Giuca said that Russo had fired the bullets at Mark and they both killed him. In court, both of them were found guilty and sent to jail for a tenure of 25 years. Currently, John is serving his sentence in New York State’s Coxsackie Correctional Facility. No appeals made by him worked out and he has to stay in the facility for the next decade.
