On July 5, 1930, Joseph Porrello was invited to a sitdown with Frank Milano where he and an underling were shot dead. Raymond was then deposed as underboss by the new Milano regime. Three weeks later Vincenzo “Jim” Porrello was also murdered and Raymond Porrello vowed to seek revenge. On August 15, 1930, an explosion leveled Raymond’s home, but he was not home at the time. Unfortunately he too would eventually fall victim to hitmen’s bullets when he was killed in 1932 along with his brother Rosario, effectively ending the Porrello brother’s influence in the Cleveland underworld.
