Attorney Douglas Caddy of Houston and retired public school teacher Grace Caporino of Yorktown Heights will join Good Morning Westchester! host Bob Marrone Monday, Sept. 17, during the 8:10 am segment on WVOX-AM-1460.
Good Morning Westchester! is the county’s only morning talk radio show. Marrone also serves as news director for WVOX.
Caddy, the attorney for Watergate burglars including E. Howard Hunt, is the author of a new memoir – Being There: Eyewitness to History, published by TrineDay – which covers a wide-ranging career including his time at General Foods and the Caporino case.
Grace Caporino, a Fellow of the United States Holocaust Museum who also taught at Purchase College, SUNY, is the widow of Gabe Caporino. Gabe Caporino was a U.S. Navy veteran and graduate of St. Peters College, Jersey City, NJ, who worked at General Foods for 17 years.
Gabe Caporino was last seen in New Orleans at a business conference in March 1974. The New York Surrogate Court declared him dead in 1979.
Forty four years ago – with several New Orleans police officers crowding her – Grace Caporino briefly touched and read a number of pages in a three-inch-high stack of reports about her missing husband. After a few minutes, they forced her to leave. The file has not been seen since, and New Orleans PD says it does not exist – except for several pages. Grace Caporino continues to pursue the case to this day, confronting corporate executives and law enforcement officials.
The Caporino case was the subject of a CBS documentary with the late reporter Chris Borgen, NYPD narcotics detective, retired. The program aired a number of times on Eye On New York beginning in May 1974.
