Lawsuit Alleges 'Jeweler To The Stars' Helped Cover Up UES Murder

Lawsuit Alleges 'Jeweler To The Stars' Helped Cover Up UES Murder”

According to Dilione's confession, Comunale was killed after returning to the apartment, when he got into an argument over cigarettes.

Dietl served as a spokesman for Rackover following the November 13 stabbing death of Joey Comunale, for which Rackover's surrogate son, James Rackover, and pal Lawrence Dilione now face murder charges.

Dilione hit Comunale first, but James soon joined in and started pummeling Comunale before strangling him and stabbing him in the head, it is alleged.

The lawsuit brought by the victim's father, Patrick Comunale, alleges that there's evidence that the 57-year-old Rackover tried to cover up the murder in the Grand Sutton apartment.

The suit accused the "dad", Jeffrey Rackover, of supplying paper towels and bleach to James Rackover to sanitize the murder scene inside his adopted son's apartment after James fatally stabbed Joey Comunale on November 13, 2016, the victim's father Patsy Comunale claims in the suit filed Sunday in State Supreme Court.

Court papers say that the apartment would have 'smelled from cleaning chemicals and the stench of death' when Jeffrey visited. Authorities located his body in a shallow grave at the Jersey Shore days later.

The father of a man killed in an Upper East Side apartment previous year has filed a lawsuit against Jeffrey Rackover, alleging the so-called "jeweler to the stars" helped cover up the murder. The filing also accuses of Jeffrey of giving his James, who legally changed his name to Rackover in 2015 after claiming the elder Rackover was his real father, drugs and money and a lavish lifestyle in return for sexual favors.

The suit demands unspecified damages on grounds of "violation of the right of sepulchre", or preventing the dead man's kin from taking immediate possession of his body for preservation and burial.

'I don't need the money - anything that comes from this goes to charity, ' he told the Post.

Jeffrey had been paying for the place - where the rent was listed at $US3600 ($4755) a month in February 2016 - in addition to a $US10,000 ($13,000) monthly "allowance" he gave James, the suit alleges.

Surveillance footage shows Comunale and Dilione escorting three women out of the Grand Sutton co-op tower shortly before 7am the morning he was killed.

He called Jeffrey Rackover's actions despicable and said it shows he had something to hide.

At the time of the murder, Joey had told friends he was heading off with three female friends to an Upper East side party after having earlier that evening partied at a Chelsea nightclub.

Jeffrey allegedly authorised his garage in the building next door to release his Mercedes to James, whose driver's license was suspended at the time.

Surveillance footage also shows James leaving the building that day with several bags of luggage, where the body parts were presumably hidden.

"I've been involved in some really vicious, heinous cases", Abrams said.

An NYPD investigation revealed the vehicle - allegedly carrying James, Dilione and Comunale's body - travelled through the Holland Tunnel at 9:45pm (local time) that night.

Private eye Bo Dietl's long-shot mayoral bid got even longer when he emerged as a key figure in a suit accusing celebrity jeweler Jeffrey Rackover of trying to help cover up a grisly slaying, political experts said Monday.
