Skip to comments.NYC Cathedral Suspect Had Booked 1-Way Flight to Italy
Posted on 04/18/2019 1:00:10 PM PDT by detective
The man taken into custody Wednesday night after allegedly trying to walk into St. Patrick's Cathedral, in the heart of New York City, with two gasoline cans and lighter fluid had booked a one-way $2,800 flight to Italy for Thursday, police said. He was also arrested days earlier at a New Jersey church, law enforcement sources familiar with the investigation tell News 4.
Marc Lamparello, 37, would've been out of the country by Thursday night, NYPD officials said in announcing formal charges against him. Police said he had purchased the ticket to Rome Wednesday morning, hours before they say he was found at St. Patrick's Cathedral with gallons of gas and lighting fluid.
Authorities are still looking into his possible intentions regarding St. Patrick's; he had told police his minivan, parked nearby, was out of gas but that allegedly wasn't the case -- and he was evasive when asked questions by police.

He could have gotten a better price.
Probably one of those last-minute purchases.
“He was also arrested days earlier at a New Jersey church,...”
So, they let him out and gave him his gas back?
Good that they caught him before he could do any damage.
Lock him up.
He can dream about Italy in his cell.
There obviously needs to be background checks to buy gasoline.
Our massive, debt-fed education-industrial complex bubble has become a refuge for leftist ideologues, misfits and parasites of all kinds.
Have to wonder if he wanted to burn the basilica in Rome next.
Doesnt he know you cant put gasoline In checked luggage?St Peters next on his list?
Lamparello, who published a book
Here’s a book by someone of that name on Amazon:
Authorities are still looking into his possible intentions regarding St. Patrick's
Perhaps they should look for their own a$$es before attempting serious detective work.
Sounds like the dude was a former Catholic turned anti-Catholic bigot. Not uncommon among those Catholics that fall prey to Marxism. (Jesuits. *Cough, cough*)
Pope’s Hitman ?
Apparently, he’s published more than one book
No doubt this young man delved in thoughts that were beyond his control and comprehension and became dangerously psychotic. Pity that people close to him be they colleagues or family did not notice or were not able to make an effective intervention. Sadly such interventions are often futile whoever makes them.
Or had he planned this before ND; perhaps with others?
Was there a coordinated plan to burn Roman Catholic churches around the world?
He was getting ready to blow
Has this guy never heard of PriceLine, Expedia, or Trivago?
