Cranston police on Wednesday announced the arrest of Michael T. Marrapese, age 40, of 245 Bay View Avenue, Cranston, RI for the murder of Lauren Ise, age 29, of the same address.

On Wednesday morning, the Cranston Police Department was contacted by the Providence Police Department advising that they had received information that Ise had been murdered by her estranged boyfriend, Marrapese.

Members of the Cranston Police Department responded to 245 Bay View Avenue, Cranston, RI to conduct a well-being check.  When Officers made entry into the apartment, they discovered Ms. Ise deceased. Based on the information provided by the Providence Police Department and the observations of responding officers, a homicide investigation was initiated. 

Through interviews of witnesses, Marrapese was identified as the suspect.  A short time later, Marrapese was observed walking on Cranston Street in the City of Providence at which time he was placed in custody. The investigation is continuing, including the execution of search warrants in the cities of Cranston and Providence, as well as the processing of evidence, according to Cranston Police.

The Cranston Police Department was familiar with the suspect and victim through prior contacts including calls for service at 245 Bay View Avenue for domestic disturbances involving Marrapese and the victim. The victim did not have a protective order in effect against Marrapese at the time of her death but recently reported feeling threatened by Marrapese after he moved out of the residence.  

This evening, Marrapese will be arraigned by a Justice of the Peace at Cranston Police Headquarters on the charge of First Degree Murder/Domestic.

He is the son of reputed mobster "Bobo" Marrapesse.
