Fat Anthony Is In The Soup – Even Though Judge Blocked Feds From Using Telling Tape Recording In Luchese Loanshark Murder Trial
A month before the murder trial of Gambino gangster Anthony (Fat Anthony) Pandrella began in early June, the feds obtained a dramatically telling tape recording of a conversation between Pandrella and Luchese loanshark Vincent Zito, the old friend he was accused of killing in October 2018, Gang Land has learned.

"You says you were supposed to give me soup yesterday or the day before," Zito is heard to angrily say on the tape. "Where the fuck am I getting soup from?" the hospital patient adds.
