July 11, 2020 – Canadian mob boss Pasquale (Fat Pat) Musitano was killed Friday afternoon in front of the Pro Patio Furniture in Burlington, Ontario, just outside the Musitano crime family home base in Hamilton. Musitano, 59, is the latest fatality in an ongoing mob war that has left scorched earth throughout the Canadian provinces of Quebec and Ontario over the past 11 years.
Musitano’s brother, Angelo (Big Ange) Mustiano, was assassinated in 2017, marking the point the war had made its way to Hamilton, the working-class factory town a stone’s throw across the border from Buffalo, New York. Last year, Fat Pat survived an attempt on his life leaving his lawyer’s office. The same black-colored GMC Denali seen at the scene of that 2019 shooting was seen near the scene of Musitano’s murder.
The Musitanos great uncle, Angelo (The Beast) Musitano, founded the crime family in the late 1930s. Their father, Dominic, headed the organization until his death of a heart attack in 1995.
Two years later, Big Ange and Fat Pat, orchestrated a takeover of the Buffalo mafia’s interests in Hamilton by ordering the gangland slayings of Buffalo LCN capo John (Johnny Pops) Papilia and his Niagara Falls underboss Carmen Barillaro. They both did eight years in prison and were released in the fall of 2006.
On May 2, 2017, 39-year old Big Ange Musitano was gunned down behind the wheel of his truck in his Waterdown, Ontario driveway. In the weeks that followed, Fat Pat’s home was shot up.
