BOSTON — Michael Romano was 20 years old, a newlywed with a daughter at home and a baby on the way when he was shot in the face fixing a flat tire in Everett on Sept. 1, 1994. Romano’s murder has never been solved – but his father, Michael Romano Sr. — told Team 5 that it could have been prevented if the FBI did not turn a blind eye to the actions of one of its paid informants, Mark Rossetti
Rossetti was a paid informant on par with Whitey Bulger. And both men stand accused of involvement in bloody mob wars, gangland blood-lettings that left dozens dead – including Michael Romano Jr.
“The FBI protected a gang of known killers,’’ Romano said in an interview from Coleman Correction Facility in Florida, where he is serving 21 years for conspiracy to commit murder.
