10th August 1990 11.00hrs
Monmouth County Prosecutor's
Called re murder of Deborah Lee Morton
Asked if there was any information as to how
CUBAN brothers had come to conclusion that MORTON had informed on TRAPASSO /
I reassured them that I thought it very
unlikely that anyone in Bermuda (Police /Customs) would have been responsible
for such information being leaked and suggested that ANGELA TRAPASSO during her
incarceration might have come to that conclusion and said as much in her weekly
conversations to CHERYL OWENS in the States.
The word on the street in N.J. is that MARCUS
COHAB is very upset at losing the $129,000 (seized by police) and he blames
MORTON. It is thought that HARRY OWENS killed his own sister (MORTON) and
it is possible HARRY OWEN suffered the same fate at the hands of COHAB.
CHERYL OWENS is not cooperating and will not
make the phone call to Angela TRAPASSO at the co-ed.
DET. (name withheld) asks that all phone calls
to Co-Ed to TRAPASSO be monitored (arrangements made with prison HQ)>
If by next TUESDAY 14/8/90, there has been no
calls informing TRAPASSO / MIRANDA of death of MORTON, that they be informed at
HMC when they appear for 'mention' - possibly with lawyer present.
There is a 'long shot' that HARRY OWENS may
telephone TRAPASSO and his number would be required by DET. (name withheld).
PO Wade, CO-ED
reports that ANGELA TRAPASSO received a
telephone call at 1820hrs 13/8/90 from a person who identified himself as GEOFF
The call was from a phone booth and the
operator had the caller insert coins to pay for the call. The prison
authority only knows that the call was from the U.S. They did not get any
information from the operator.
The call was actually from HARRY OWENS as
TRAPASSO slipped on several occasions and called him HARRY.
TRAPASSO informed HARRY of DEBORAH OWEN / LEE
MARTINS murder and HARRY kept saying "OH MY GOD". She asked if
he was alright, seemed very upset.
TRAPASSO asked if he had moved to his new
home. HARRY replied, "one of them". TRAPASSO warned him
that the authorities were looking for him, he replied "What for, I don't
Call lasted approx. 6 mins.
22nd August 1990
To D.I.U. 1050hrs
Angela Trapasso is willing to talk to DEA and
State Police re Miranda enquiry and Morton murder.
She does not want her lawyer present (Delroy
Duncan) as he had reported everything back to Frank Tassone (Cuban brothers
lawyer in Miami).
Tassone apparently has visited Trapasso in
Trapasso is very upset Rosalva Miranda has
DEA / NJ State Police will probably come to
Bermuda on Monday 27/8/90 to see Trapasso (at her request) re murder enquiry.
Again request to find out if Angel Santiago
has been to Bermuda.
