He is a close relative of a mobster and the son of a man who was convicted in one of Gloucester County's most gruesome crimes - the shooting death and ax-dismemberment of a 33-year-old man. He wound up in fights, dropped out of school, signed "Lucifer" written in his own blood, and hung out at a makeshift fort in the wetlands of Paulsboro, where authorities found the remains of animals and birds whose wings had been torn off. Long before being...

A few hours before his client was to become the newest resident of Georgia's death row, a weary-looking Roy Kelly 3d, attorney at law, slowly rose from his chair in Courtroom Two of the Baldwin County Courthouse here, turned, and approached the jury box. "Ladies and gentlemen of the jury," he said, his voice barely above a whisper. "You have been presented with two John Espositoes. One, a crazed killer . . . another . . . subdued, quiet, passive - and that was all within the same day. " He gestured to the defense table, to the 23-year-old life he had been charged with saving from the electric chair, to yet a third John Esposito: the young convicted murderer who had spent most of Friday sobbing softly into a crumpled tissue while lawyers argued for his life.

A year before little Katie Beers was kidnapped, her teen-age brother said he had seen a kiddie-porn video in the alleged abductor's Long Island home, the youth's father said yesterday. The allegation, made by the teen-ager to his mother, triggered a police probe of John Esposito, the Bay Shore contractor now accused of holding Katie prisoner in a hidden vault for 16 days. At the time, detectives questioned Katie's half-brother, John, about the video and his relationship to Esposito.

Dominick Varrone, who is heading the investigation. Evidence found so far, he said, includes a mattress with "red stains . . . that didn't belong to (Katie)

Authorities in nine states are retracing a South Jersey couple's 11-day death rampage by following a trail of blood from Georgia to the New Mexico border. Alicia Woodward, 18, and John Esposito, 21, were captured last week in Colorado. They face extradition for the murders of three elderly people who were plucked from outside neighborhood supermarkets, robbed and beaten. "We need to know how they got from Georgia to Oklahoma and if there are any other crimes committed along the way," Oklahoma County Prosecutor Robert Macy said yesterday.

Two Pemberton residents are targets of a nationwide search after being named as suspects in the kidnapping and slaying of an 85-year-old North Carolina librarian Thursday.

The pair stayed in a hotel in Oklahoma City and ordered food through room service, then paid the bill from money stolen from the first victim they kidnapped, robbed and murdered. That was part of a grim, cold picture painted yesterday by Sheriff David Medlin of Oldham County, Texas, after he questioned John Esposito, the 21-year-old Berlin Township man charged, along with a girlfriend, with killing three elderly people during a 10-day crime spree that began in North Carolina and ended in Texas.

The photo of the missing 10-year-old girl with the sweet smile and the bangs captured the nation's heart. And so did the story of her life amid poverty, squalor and alleged sexual abuse, sordid details that came out after she disappeared from a video arcade in Nesconset, Long Island, N.Y., after crying into her godmother's answering machine that a man with a knife was bearing down on her. On Wednesday, the drama had a happy but somewhat puzzling...

In their last free moments, John Esposito and Alicia Woodward acted like natural born tourists. Nailed at Mesa Verde, which is Spanish for the green tablelands in the Four Corners area of southwest Colorado, the capture of the accused cross-country killers was bloodless and hardly the stuff of movie drama. Nothing like the gory fictional shootout capture in the movie "Natural Born Killers," filmed near Albuquerque, N.M., or the "Thelma & Louise" suicide drive off a cliff in Utah, about 100 miles from Mesa Verde.
