Salvatore Caruana is wanted for drug trafficking and money laundering. He was aired on Unsolved Mysteries, however I don't know if he was ever aired on AMW.
Caruana was first arrested in 1954 for armed robbery and got involved in the narcotics business in the 1970s. Caruana would supervise the trafficking of large quantities of marijuana and would make sure it was weighed correctly and that the quality was good. Caruana was arrested in 1983 along with several key associates, he was possession of $40 million dollars worth of marijuana at the time of his arrest. He posted a $500,000 bond and failed to appear for his Apr 2, 1984 trial. An investigation was launched and it was determined that Caruana was a multi-millionaire who was laundering large amounts of money. In 1987, his Massachusetts home was raided and was last tracked three months later to a motel in Connecticut. One month later, his van was found at a truck stop, the van was wiped clean of fingerprints. He hasn't been seen since.
Thoughts? Many believe that Caruana is likely dead, especially because he had connections to the mob. If he's still alive, he would be in his mid-to-late-70s, and it's possible he fled the US and lived the good life overseas. I feel there's a good chance that the mob killed him however, considering the lack of any sightings after 1987.
