BurlBarerPaul Scharff, son of homicide victim, teams with ex-Mobster Frank Cullotta to seek justice!! listen live Saturday

What would you do if you received a phone call twenty seven years after your father s murder and a friend told you they finally knew who killed him? You would venture forward to bring the criminal to justice and clear the case. However, good guys aren’t always the heroes and bad guys the villains.

Paul Scharff , our guest Saturday 2pm pt/5pm et, found out who killed his father  by reading the book CULLOTTA, by Frank Cullatta and our pal Denny Griffin.


It was Denny who, in one of his early his early appearance on our show, told us the amazing story of an “unsolved” homicide in  McHenry County  Illinois, and how former mobster Frank Cullotta revealed the name of the killer, and the motive, for the murder of two innocent people over 27 years ago.    Cullotta named Larry Neumann as the murderer, Neumann admitted committing the murders because the pub owner, Mr. Scharff, had thrown his ex-wife out of the tavern.

When informed of this information, not only did the McHenry County detectives fail to act, they appeared to go out of their way to attempt to damage Cullotta’s credibility.

CULLOTTAThese days Scharff’s son, Paul Scharff, is aggressively seeking to have McHenry County officials finally name Neumann as the killer.  Neumann died in prison in January 2007 after a lengthy criminal career that included at least six murders. From the book ‘Cullotta,’ I discovered who killed my father and his barmaid 27 years ago.”

Frank Cullotta says “It’s about damn time! It’s taken them so long it’s ridiculous,” the 70-year-old reformed hoodlum says in his biting Chicago accent. “The kid wants closure, and can you blame him?”
