For the benefit of those playing at home who want to know what it said without clicking blindly on a link...
This Daily Mail link's headline was "Mobster claims he helped Poison Pope John Paul I with cyanide and threatened to kill Pope John Paul II because they both tried to expose a billion dollar stock fraud scam involving cardinals and gangsters in Vatican City."
The links I got for that headline, including the msn link and a direct link for the Daily Mail, were:
The Daily Mail's site included this:
Anthony Raimondi, 68, claims he helped kill John Paul I in 1978 because the pope threatened to expose a billion dollar stock fraud scam
The scam took place at the Vatican bank, where criminal cardinals and mobsters allegedly sold fake stock certificates to American companies like Coca-Cola
Raimondi was recruited by his cousin Paul Marcinkus to help silence the Pope before he exposed the illegal dealings
Raimondi reportedly stood watch as his cousin drugged the John Paul's tea with Valium and force fed the sleeping pope cyanide
Mobsters and cardinals also threatened to kill John Paul II for the same reason, but let him live after agreeing to keep the scam a secret
The revelations are in Raimondi's new book 'When the Bullet Hits the Bone'
"A mobster from the Colombo mafia family claims he helped poison Pope John Paul I with cyanide 33 days into his reign to stop the pontiff from exposing a billion dollar stock fraud scam. "
Raimondi dismisses those who question his story or say it closely resembles 'The Godfather III.'
'It was a terrible movie. To tell you the truth I don’t really remember it,' Raimondi told The Post.
'What I said in the book I stand by till the day I die. If they take [the pope’s body] and do any type of testing, they will still find traces of the poison in his system.' "
It includes a link to the NY Post.
"Meet the mobster who claims he helped whack Pope John Paul I over stock fraud."
I see no reason to take this claim seriously at this time. It's true he's making that claim, and it's helping to sell his book. Any death of anyone famous has claims of foul play attached to it. JP I died rather suddenly, and it's easy to find conspiracy theories whenever that happens.
