Gus Boulis Bombshell

I haven't followed the gangland killing of Jack Abramoff and Adam Kidan partner Gus Boulis that closely since Kidan and Ambramoff plead out on their fraud charges, but I don't think I would have missed this bombshell that is casually laid out in today's Miami Herald. From the Herald:

Former SunCruz co-owner Adam Kidan told investigators that the triggerman was shot to death three years ago by his own business partner.

Kidan, who bought SunCruz from Boulis with lobbyist Jack Abramoff, gave Fort Lauderdale police a taped statement May 1, naming John Gurino as the person who shot Boulis four times in the chest in 2001, said Art Carbo, an investigator with the Broward state attorney's office.
During the 2 ½-hour taped statement, Kidan also told Fort Lauderdale homicide detectives and the lead prosecutor on the case, Brian Cavanagh, that Moscatiello and Ferrari devised the murder plot.

Kidan said he had no role in the plot to kill Boulis, with whom he had been locked in a contentious fight over the Dania Beach-based gambling ship fleet.

No role? But you know the shooters name and the plotters in the murder of a business associate you're having problems with? Sounds doubtful, and it also sounds like Kidan learned well from his mentor Moscatiello who has finked his way out of trouble for a long time.

For the record, Moscatiello and third suspect James Fiorillo are trying to make bail. They concluded their bail hearings yesterday, could be bad news for Kidan.
