Arnold Shapiro has indicated that there won't be; he feels that by the time 20 years had passed, the subjects' lives had become fairly settled and needed no further updates.

Oh. I guess the only real newsworth item was that Angelo was nabbed for a 25-y/o unsolved murder by a DNA match:

^ that story is awful.& in the 20 yrs reunion he made it sound like he's only been in trouble with the law 1 time for disorderly conduct,& this article says he's been in trouble numerous times for yrs.

Thanks for the info! What happened in the trial though? He was arrested and arraigned in 2007 but I can't find any info on what happened after that. Was there ever a trial or was the case pleaded out. Does anyone out there know?

He just began his bid of 25 years for murder. Ironically, he is housed at East Jersey State Prison which is where Scared Straight was filmed.

When you steal from Peter and give to Paul, you will always have the support of Paul.

wow, that is very ironic...after all these years to get convicted now, I guess the dna evidence caught up with him. I've searched the internet but never saw any news about the trial as it was going on, I wonder why?

"The wust thing I evah did was robbed a stowah... I got cawt" Angelo, 1978. I guess that wasn't as true as he claimed!

reply

The trial took place last April (2010). In a moment, the results of that trial...

CRIKEY! I was wondering if he still had a mustache (but hopefully not that SuperMario/Rolly Fingers hybrid). But alas, no. WTF was WITH that thick 'stache he's sporting in the followup??! Lord have mercy. And the women all had a mullet. That's why the 'fashion police' was formed, although, you know someone always slips through the cracks.

Anyway, for him to so bold-facedly lie - man, that's horrible. And with a wife and 3 kids. That family will never be the same. Sad. What a sleazy scumbag.
