Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS.

Alfred Calzacorto Sr. murder 10/27/1986 Donora, PA *Son, Brian Calzacorto, still the only person of interest; family refused to help investigation*

Alfred Calzacorto Sr.

The family of Officer Alfred Calzacorto Sr. invoked their Fifth Amendment right against self-incrimination *133 times*, but yes, that is their right. It just amazes me that a family cared more about protecting themselves rather than justice for their father or husband. In fact, there was a taped interview of Alfred’s sister where she (Alfred’s sister) was told by Mary An Calzacorto (Alfred’s wife) that she knew Brian Calzacorto killed Alfred, but he was her baby so she had to protect him. I guess her husband meant nothing to her, and they were married for 35 years. I wonder how she felt when Brian was arrested and convicted of viciously raping and murdering Laurie Colanino in 1990. How proud she must have been. I wonder if she even realized for even one second that if they had let justice occur for Alfred Sr. that maybe Laurie would still be alive today.

Those who invoked the Fifth (at the Coroner’s Inquest) :
Mary Ann Calzacorto (51 times)
Alfred Calzacorto, Jr.
Leonard Volpi
Kathleen Volpi
Lorraine Fayish
Charles Fayish
Janice Calzacorto
