We have compiled newspaper accounts of the shooting death of Felix Pappalardi, as well as the arrest and trial of his wife Gail Collins. We will also be sharing interviews given by Felix in which he shares his thoughts on a variety of subjects.

Because of the age and relatively small print type of the actual articles, we have retyped them on this website in order to make them easier to read. You should know that the content of the text of the articles have not been altered in any way. The accompanying photos of Gail Collins and Felix Pappalardi have been reduced in size to accomodate your monitor and to reduce their file size, thus minimizing the load time of the page. Other than that, they are as they appeared in the articles they were taken from.
