Mob Figure Buried

Posted: September 23, 1993

An unidentified mourner is helped from the Carto Funeral Home ton South Broad Street yesterday following a viewing for Frank Baldino Sr., a mob figure slain last Friday night in the parking lot of the Melrose Diner in South Philadelphia. Baldino, 46, an associate of Joseph "Skinny Joe" Merlino, was shot by two or three gunmen as he sat in his car. Merlino is a reputed rival of mob boss John Stanfa, a situation that has erupted in bloodshed on both sides. Stanfa's son, Joseph, was shot in the face last month.
