"Wounded Wife Gasps Facts Leading to Tragedy"
With four suspects, two of them former police officers, in jail as material witnesses, police yesterday obtained from Mrs. Concetta Binetti the mumbled information which may lead to the identification of the four gansters who murdered her husband, Gaetano, yesterday, and wounded her so badly that, if she lives, she may never see again. The widow, barely conscious, with shotgun pellets in her head and shoulders and her eyes unseeing, lay in agony at the General Hospital. She was able only to mumble a few answers to the questions of Detective Lieutenants Hickey and Corsini. But these few replies, according to the detectives may lead to the early arrest of the gunmen guilty of the murder. After further investigation, the shotgun murder of Gaetano Binetti and the wounding of wife was confessed yesterday by Mrs. Maria Binetti; his cousin, shortly after she made an attempt to commit suicide, thus removing the Binetti affair from the lists of gangland murders and adding it to those based upon disappointed love. Maria Binetti died on August 12, 1928 as a result of her suicide attempt.
