After serving for just 35 years of a life sentence, a former Mafia member tied to at least 11 bodies (with a few of them dismembered) will be released on parole much to the outrage of the victims’ families.
68-year-old Gambino crime family hitman Anthony Senter was behind bars in Canaan, PA, until the U.S. Parole Commission recently said he could exit. “The Commission determined that he had substantially observed the rules of the institution and that his release in June 2024 would not jeopardize the public welfare,” a Department of Justice spokeswoman told The New York Post.
However, the federal authorities obviously viewed the infamously hotheaded and ruthless Senter as a much more dangerous button man decades ago. In 1989 was he received a life sentence plus 20 more years after being convicted for being a part of at least 11 murders. Senter, along with six others, was also hit with multiple racketeering charges.
Senter was a member of a mob crew working for Gambino man Roy DeMeo, out of the Gemini Lounge at 4021 Flatlands Ave. in Flatlands, Brooklyn. Authorities have linked this group to at least 75 deaths during the late 1970s and early 1980s. DeMeo, who was a butcher’s apprentice entering the world of crime, created a gruesome murder procedure called “the Gemini Method” that Senter and the others followed and became infamous for.
Former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani, who brought the case against DeMeo’s crew as a prosecutor, was shocked at Senter’s release, saying he should “die in jail.”
