NY Post: DEE SNIDER's Brother-In-Law Killed In 'Mystery' Attack

The brother-in-law of TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider was shot in the nose and killed in a mystery attack Monday (August 18) while walking to work in Midtown New York City, according to the New York Post.

Vincent Gargiulo, 34, whose sister is married to Snider, was found in a pool of blood just before 7 a.m. at 30th Street and Broadway.

He was gunned down one block from a Con Edison substation building site at Fifth Avenue, where he worked in construction, cops said.

Cops say they still don't know what prompted the bizarre close-range attack on Gargiulo, and last night questioned one of his co-workers.

The co-worker was taken in after a police dog, which had been brought to the murder site, picked up a scent.

Cops later released the co-worker and said he was not a suspect.

Snider went to the Midtown South Precinct station house with Gargiulo's distraught sister to give information to cops about Gargiulo's life.

Police said they questioned the duo and asked them to help come up with possible reasons for the sudden brutal attack.

"It's been a bad day for me today," said Dee, who managed a wan smile when leaving the station house on West 35th Street.

The 48-year-old rocker was accompanied by his wife, Suzette — the victim's sister — and another man.

Ed Kayatt, whose son used to live with Gargiulo, called the victim "a real sweet boy" who had had some business failures in the past but finally appeared to be getting his life back on track when he was killed.

"I was shocked to hear about this. I saw him three weeks ago, and he was very happy because he found a good-paying job," said Kayatt, owner of the Nueva Habana Café.

"He was a likeable person, very personable, always pleasant," said Kayatt, who had hired Gargiulo for awhile as a waiter. "He was always there to help us when he could."

Co-workers said Gargiulo was married.

Cops said the dead man was related to the family that founded Gargiulo's, a famous Coney Island Italian eatery.
