Jackie Nazarian and Rudy Sciara - Prov Police Photo of their arrest in 1961

Each week accompanying the segments of the FBI files on Raymond Patriarca and expert analysis on the documents released, GoLocal provides a “cheat sheet” of some of the key elements from the documents.

Make no mistake about it, the files are layered with information about a time where the scope and reach of the Patriarca crime family permeated nearly every aspect of life in New England.

 

PAGE 1 Patriarca upset about the Indictment of Sciara 

Jackie Nazarian — the longtime Patriarca family enforcer was murdered after he spoke out about taking over for Patriarca when the Boss was sick. Another Patriarca loyalist was arrested and was represented by criminal defense attorney Charles Curran - Patrairca’s personal attorney.

According to an informant, Patriarca “was disturbed over the local Grand Jury’s returning an indictment against Rudy Sciara for the murder of Jackie Nazarian as he, Patriarca, understood that very little evidence had been presented to the Grand Jury, and Patriarca is having Sciara’s attorney, Charles Curran, find out went went wrong with the Grand Jury.”

(Editor's Note: FBI files spell Sciara with one "r", while court documents and Providence Police spell it with two "r" s.)

 

PAGE 4 Patriarca pays wife’s hospital bill by peeling off $1500 in cash

As Raymond Patriarca visited his wife at New England Baptist Hospital in Boston, he paid for the “very expenseve room” in cash. As he meet with the doctor “he peeled off $1,500 and offered the same to doctor in payment…he was reluctant to pay same through the regular billing channels.”

Narragansett Downs

PAGE 78 $25,000 Bribe to Governor Notte

According to FBI documents, The same UNMAN told RAYMOND that he worked it out with him to the extent that the Governor gets 25 thousand, UNMA will get 15 thousand which consist of 5 thousand from him, not identified, and 10 thousand from Narragansett. The total will be 75,000, 25 thousand of which will go to Governor Nottee and ‘We’ll wind up with 50 thousand whichh we’ll get for a period of 5 years at a rate of 10 thousand a year.”

This is tied to additional racing dates/the installation of lighting for night racing at Lincoln Downs. 

This also connects Patriarca to control of unions. “The union representative said he would do anything RAYMOND wants him to do and said that he would go to work on the complaint of REDACTED brothers and see what he could do.”

Speaker Harry Curvin

PAGE 85 Value of bugging Patriarca

“Since activation this msur has furnished a wealth of worthwhile information concerning Patriarca’s activities and associates. It has shown that Patriarca exerts real control over the racketeers and racketeering activities in Rhode Island and Massachusetts. It has also shown definite connections between Patrairca and the New York City hoodlum element and has strongly indicated that Patriarca is a member of the “commission.”
