Joseph "Joey" Communale, Missing Manhattan Hottie, Turns Up Dead In A Shallow Grave

The body of a 26-year-old Connecticut man who went missing after attending a party in Midtown Manhattan has been found buried in a shallow grave.

Joseph Comunale, who goes by the name Joey, was discovered in a wooded stretch on the Jersey shore early Wednesday.

His partially-burned remains were found inside a suitcase that had been buried behind Foggia's Florist in the town of Oceanport. Pix 11 reports that there were multiple stab wounds on the body.

No arrests have been made at this time, but police are reportedly looking at James Rackover, the son of famed jeweler Jeffrey Rackover, who has designed for the likes of Jennifer Lopez.

R123 You make a good point. "Most Italians" was probably incorrect on my part. The Italians who are stylish and elegant are from Lombardy (Milan and Torino) or the Veneto or Bologna.

But most Italians do live south of Bologna and are likely to be darker. So I overstated my case.

It's just that in my experience, northern Italians are mortified by the image of their country in the US because of the Sicilians.

Thanks for correcting me.

I have this fantasy that the pathetic, old, and botoxed, Liberace jeweler goes to Rikers to see his boy toy lover. He's expecting to see the sweet and gentle spirit he's known for the last two years and for a reasonable explanation of the night's events. Behind the glass partition while they are talking, the kid then pulls an Edward Norton in Primal Fear 180 and reveals himself to be the frightening, sociopathic murderer he always has been. Liberace recoils in horror and disbelief and is later consumed by guilt as he peers into the East River. He returns to his life as jeweler to the D-list and even attends Trump's inauguration but the joie-de-vivre has gone out of him. Until he meets a young and closeted young Republican intern at one of the glittering balls as the credits roll.

This is one sexy fucking story. Though, there are definately pictures where young Rackover has gay face, and Dillione's face is why the term was invented.

I can't imagine all kinds of scenarios. Joey sold them fake coke, and paid with his life. Or, the sexually advanced on him, he rejected, and they went into a rage.

My favorite theory is a good old fashioned meth-fueled blood orgy. If that's the case I hope is was REAL satisfying to young Rackover and Dillone, 'cause they're gonna be paying for it for a long time to come.

I'm guessing each of them has fingered the other (ahem) as the main killer, and the cops are trying to figure out who's actually telling the truth. Whoever they determine is telling the truth will get immunity and testify at the other's trial.

by Anonymousreply 225November 18, 2016 12:25 AM

R225, my current theory is that Rackover and Dillone stole drugs from Communale and after he left he noticed that it was going on. That's why he left the building and came back an hour later. He probably confronted them, it got physical, and it ended the way it did.

All the men in this story are clearly gay. Joey may be "masc" but all his photos are with shirtless guys and while good looking he still has elements of gayface (or gay smile). Is there proof that he was even pretending to be straight?? He doesn't even seem closeted.

The killers are boyfriends or fuck buddies behind Daddy's back. This was a kinky drug threesome gone wrong or one of them cheated with Joey and the other got jealous.

15 stab wounds usually points to a crime of passion (betrayed lover or something like that).

The broken pelvis could be due to any number of things: trying to force the body into a suitcase, and bones do break if sufficiently burned, as this body might have been. As gruesome as it sounds, the burning muscles and tendons pull and the bones crack.

by Anonymousreply 253November 18, 2016 3:51 AM

The sexual advances theory just doesn't ring true. A gay couple (or at least 2 guys who are sexually involved) invite a 3rd up to their place for drinks or coke- I understand some girls came, at first, as well. The girls leave, and the 2 guys make their move.

I picture Joey, who despite his background likely knew a few gay people, being polite and begging off. In that case, I can't see the 2 attacking him and stabbing him 15 times. However, maybe Joey, drunk and coked up, flew into a drunken rage, called them fags, and it escalated.

We don't know if this is the 'murder apartment' or not, but it's probably representative of what the place looks like. I suppose poor Joey got tossed off the balcony. The apartment is not bad. I'd rip out the tacky gold fixtures and do something about the worn parquet floors, but I love the idea of a window in the shower. It's too far from the subway, and I hate the east side, but that's just me.

That apartment is awful and Sutton Place is one of the most boring areas of Manhattan. The vast majority of apartments are like this - boxes with shitty floors. I don't know where it got the reputation of being glamorous or swank. It's not.

Too bad they're probably not into 57 year old saggy bottoms, R294.

The article at R291 had an interesting quote from the victim's father, describing his son as "a guy who was the most charismatic, funny guy — always the life of the party — never did steroids or anything else". Don't know why steroids needs to be brought into this, but I guess it's so prevalent among the Guidos that it needs to be pointed out when one of them doesn't do them.

I guess this is a good approximation of what they saw that night at the apartment and were determined to have that fat Italian cock.

I still say Joey left to take the girls home (he probably had a car), returned to James's pad figuring they'd continue their weekend of partying, or at least to sleep because he was tired after being up all night and just intended to crash for a few hours. Then one of the other guys (probably James) tried to fuck Joey while he slept. Joey woke up, furious at the violation, things got violent, then someone grabbed a knife in defense and stabbed Joey. Joey was in such a rage that it probably took a few stabs to knock him down. The other guys panicked and thoroughly fucked themselves over with their amateur attempt to cover up the crime.

Basically, [R270], I read a lot. Some cultures burn the bodies of their dead in funeral pyres. The temperature rarely gets hot enough to turn everything to ash. Slaves that died during transit were often disposed of this way, as it was easier, safer and more practical. People were burned at the stake for being heretics or witches. There are written accounts of such things. and I've read them. The broken bone aspect appears in many accounts.

The apartment at R381 seems typically gay, framed French liquor posters, espresso finished furniture, beige walls, glam chandelier. I'm sure it was put together by the sugar daddy, so I'm not reading too much into that. The "son" seems more gay than Larry, and they both are good looking enough to get hot guys, so why kill some random hot guy who turns you down, unless they're high on meth, or something. The fact that Joey went back to the apartment sounds like the party was going to continue for some time, so he obviously wasn't spooked by anything up to that point.

I have been to three kinds of chem-friendly parties:

1) The ones where everyone was rolling: actually very little sex going on but a lot of cuddling and kissing and hugging and squeezing and declaring their undying love (probably for someone they met two hours earlier and that they won't ever see again but I digress);

2) The ones where people were doing coke: it can get a little friskier, raunchier, there is sex going on but it happens in duos or small groups in adjacent rooms (bedrooms, bathrooms, ...) and all in all still good-natured and fun to be a part of;

3) The one where I immediately knew there was meth: people turned into zombies, animalistic sleazy (probably bareback) sex, everyone right there it the main room: I made a U-turn and headed right back to the door, home, took an Ambien and tried to pretend none of this ever happened.

So based on this, I would think that there might have been more than coke in this sordid affair...

Since the body was found pantless I'm going to guess the sex part was over and as Joey was getting dressed he made a crack or laughed at one of the others not being able to get it up or was a lousy lay. Add in drugs, big egos and hot tempers with sharp knives and you gotta a bigga messa on your handsa!

Points of interest: Looking through Joey Communale's social media pages has anyone found a picture of him with a girl? Lots of pictures with his (model handsome) bro Maximilian hanging all over each other (bros will be bros). Usually straight guys on their Insta or Facebook walls have a shirtless picture with a cute girl in a bikini. Usually but not always short and curvy with long hair. Haven't found her yet on Joey's social media.

Meanwhile, Joey is 26 years old just a few years out of Hofstra. Yet he has a townhouse apartment and a new expensive set of wheels and is partying at top dollar clubs with rich people. Clearly he has a lot of money. Is that coming from the roofing job? From Joey's dad: “It’s been tough for us, but I can tell you he lived a full life,” the elder Comunale said Friday. “He was going to be 27, but he was his own guy. He did what he wanted to do. He had a nice townhouse, a brand new car, everything to life for. Everything to live for. And he did it his way.” What way was that, Daddy-O?

Joey goes out, scores, and returns. Unbeknownst to Joey, the coke was fake. James realizes the coke is fake. James asks for his money back, Joey doesn't have $1,000, and in their coked-up no-sleep state, a fight ensues. It gets out of hand.

by Anonymousreply 542November 21, 2016 7:44 AM

Agree btw that it sounds like Joey's main source of income may have been drug dealing/ delivery.

Can totally see how that, mixed with whatever gay sex angle, could turn into a nasty, violent situation on a dime.

If you just google Robert Wone and DataLounge a whole bunch of threads pop up. There were at least one poster (maybe two) in those threads who wrote these long, rambling posts defending the killers and calling everyone else on DL "nelly Nancy drews". Every few years when Wone would come up we would get the same type of post, extremely defensive, arrogant, possibly drug addled and always with the "nelly Nancy drew" insult. It was heavily suspected at the time to be one of the Wone killers (namely Joseph Price). I've seen that same phrase used in some of the Trump threads, so I wouldn't be surprised if he still posts here.

Here's one, Price is clearly posting at R19/R29/R40/R43/R46/R48. The references to the "lynch mob" site are typical of his posts in nearly every Wone thread.

Actually google "Robert Wone lynch mob DataLounge", its brings up more of Joe Price's posts than Nelly Nancy Drews (which posters later used as a badge of pride). He also uses "drama queens" a lot , refers to the Wone family as "money hungry leeches" and constantly talks about how boring and meaningless the case is (yet finds and posts in every single one of the threads about them for YEARS on end).

R541 More than likely that the family doesn't pronounce the final vowel. For as long as Montefiore Hospital in the Bronx has been around, everyone pronounced the final 'e'. Now on TV commercials, we hear monta-fee-or.

[quote] Rackover, 25, the surrogate son of a prominent Manhattan jeweler, said he stayed home to watch an Ultimate Fighting Championship bout on Nov. 13, a Saturday, and never left his E. 59th St. apartment.

This should be easy enough to prove / disprove.

All of those buildings in Manhattan have cameras. Even if he went out through a service entrance, they'd show him leaving and re-entering the building.

[quote] Dilione, he said, was at a club and came by his house with a few people around 4 a.m. He said he knows Dilione through an ex-girlfriend. The group stayed at Rackover’s place until about 7 a.m., drinking and hanging out.

Again, cameras will verify this, as will the recollections of the night doorman. Nobody just enters a highrise apartment at 4 am without the doorman allowing them access. I'm sure the club has cameras too, even if nobody there remembers him, it should be easy to verify that he was there.

And the three women, who are not implicated in the crime will have stories to tell as well.

If he's lying, he's incredibly stupid

by Anonymousreply 568November 21, 2016 3:18 PM

R568 It's not like he was going to be laid out naked in the casket. I would think they's use a fresh set of clothes.

Years ago, I had a co-corker who was a heavy drinker and late one night got on I-95 up in Connecticut, going the wrong way. It wasn't long before he got into a head-on collision with a 18-wheeler going the right way. From what I hear, he was killed instantly, and it wan't a pretty sight.

I didn't attend the funeral, but I heard it was open casket.

Don't even remember the guy, to be honest R581. He was a few years younger than me. But a cursory glance at some of the mutual people we know on Facebook shows he has ties to some really douchey people.

It's just shocking because this is such a small town and something like this seems really bizarre and random.

I went to high school with Melanie McGuire not too far from Oceanport at Middletown High School South. She was the suitcase killer who murdered her husband, chopped him up and threw him into Chesapeake Bay in luggage. I was in Guys and Dolls with her and I still have my yearbook that she signed.

In school, she had a gay guy best friend. She was odd. Always stuck me that she thought she was a 1940s movie queen- bee stung lips the whole 9.

I pictured in my mind her gay best friend helping her dispose of the body. She'd say to him "All right fa ggot. START cuttin'!"
