NY Post: DEE SNIDER Pleads For Help In In-Law Slay

August 20, 2003

TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider made a passionate plea for help to find the killer of his wife's brother yesterday, a day after the 34-year-old construction worker was gunned down in New York City.

"We are hoping to get whoever did this. We have no idea why this would happen to him," Snider, 48, told The New York Post. "He was a great brother to my wife, a great brother-in-law and a great uncle to my kids."

Cops say they still have no motive or suspect in the killing of Vincent Gargiulo, who was shot execution style with one bullet in the face shortly before 7 a.m. on West 30th Street as he walked to work at a Con Ed construction site.

Gargiulo was the younger brother of Snider's wife of 27 years, Suzette, with whom the singer has four children.

Yesterday, Snider turned up at Gargiulo's Sunnyside home with another brother-in-law, Bill Gargiulo, 38, to pick up the dead man's two Jack Russell dogs.

He said he had last seen Vincent on Saturday at an engagement party for his son, Jesse, who is an MTV VJ.

"It was a great day. He looked great, sounded great. We are pretty mortified," said Snider.

Gargiulo had a record of nine arrests for burglary and drug possession on Long Island, according to the paper.

Cops think he may have been involved in a scam in which gyms would open and take membership fees from new clients before closing suddenly, sources told The Post.
