Warlocks Motorcycle Club Member Found Guilty of Murder in Rossillo Jr.’s Death
Michael DiMauro, associated with the illegal motorcycle club Warlocks, has been convicted of murder and other charges in the killing of David Rossillo Jr. Prosecutors revealed that the fatal encounter took place at Mount Moriah Cemetery in southwest Philadelphia, where DiMauro allegedly shot Rossillo Jr. Following the shooting, DiMauro reportedly bound Rossillo Jr.’s neck with a rope and moved his body to a crypt within the cemetery.
The prosecution’s case was supported by the testimony of two cooperating witnesses. The jury deliberated for only a few hours before reaching a decision. The exact motive behind the deadly altercation remains unclear.
District Attorney Larry Krasner commented on the case, revealing that not only did they discover Rossillo Jr.’s body when the crypt was opened, but they also found another murder victim.
