OPEN LETTER TO JOSEPH STEPHAN TRAMONTANO - ACCUSED OF DOUBLE MURDER
Joe, I am sure as you're reading this you have strong and mixed emotions, anger, surprise, and fear just to mention a few. You are now aware that the 2 other accused in David and Sheils murders have been arrested. Santos was arrested while driving a Taxi in Manila and Kaufman in New York, and that being the case you shall now become the focus for all agencies concerned.
On a personal note i have always liked you Joe and was shocked and surprised when the NBI linked you to the murders, in fact i told them that they were crazy and you would have had no part in such a terrible crime. However, there are questions that need to be asked and only you can give the answers. There is no interest by me or any agency to have an innocent man convicted of these murders, all we want is the truth the complete truth about all what was going on that lead to the murders.
MY ADVICE JOE
Give yourself up to US Authorities before you end up being arrested in a 3rd world country and if convicted you will spend the rest of your natural life in jail.
Its still not too late to ask for help even if your finger was on the trigger that morning as long as you come clean and tell all. As i see it your co accused will try and cut a deal now they have been arrested and it wont surprise me if you will attract most or all of the blame, this is starting to happen already but no deal has been offered to them yet.
I'm sure had you and Kaufman been drug free the murders would not have taken place, therefore you need to come clean on that, as i see it the drug biz is partly to blame for what happened.
The mastermind, the paymaster, the protectors of the drug biz all need to be named for you to get a break in this mess you find yourself in. The ambush on me must also be explained should you or any of the co-accused be involved in that.
I know you have a lot to think about right now, but i can still remember your face for one month after the murders, you looked a frightened and troubled man. You even gave me your handkerchief to wipe away my tears at the funeral. I believe deep down you are a decent man and you got caught up in some madness that got out of control.
Should you wish to take this advice and need help you can contact the FBI directly or e-mail Jimmy D to assist you with the US Authorities. Its time to step up to the plate Joe, time is running out for you, Kaufman has a hearing on May 9 as does Santos later that month. Make sure you make the right decision now don't leave it until its too late.
