April 9, 2020 — New England mob figure Billy (The Angel) Angelesco recently pleaded guilty to extortion in U.S. District Court out of Boston. Angelesco, 49, is a reputed member of the Patriarca crime family.

Along with two associates, he beat up and robbed a drug dealer in Abington, Massachusetts in September 2018. They pummeled a marijuana pusher and black-market sneaker broker and took $1,000 cash, 4 pounds of weed and several boxes of stolen Air Force Ones after their victim stopped paying shake down money months earlier. The Feds traced Angelesco blood and a rental car in his name to the crime scene. Angelesco yelled at his victim, “Where’s my cash motherfucker” as him and his associates reigned down blows.

Angelesco faces up to 20 years in prison when he is sentenced this summer. FBI documents and court records link Angelesco to current New England mafia boss Carmen (The Big Cheese) DiNunzio and deceased don Peter (The Crazy Horse) Limone. In the 2000s, Angelesco ran a sports book for DiNunzio and did his collections. Around this same time, he was acting as a driver and bodyguard for Limone, fresh off three decades behind bars for a murder he didn’t commit.

Limone died of natural causes at 83 years old in June 2017. DiNunzio succeeded him as Godfather of New England. FBI surveillance units followed Angelesco as he delivered messages from Limone to DiNunzio in Boston’s North End and the directives from DiNunzio to the organization’s Providence faction.

Angelesco was found guilty of extortion in state court in 2008 and did four years in prison. He beat a murder rap in 2005, acquitted at trial for killing Pete DeVito, a nightclub manager who had assaulted him and thrown him out of a strip club.
