JUSTICE FOR VINNIE: INVESTIGATE THE MISCONDUCT OF WINDSOR COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY ROBERT SAND

ON AUGUST 17, 2008 MY SON, VINCENT TAMBURELLO JR. WAS MURDERED IN VERMONT BY A GANG BENT ON REVENGE. KYLE BOLASKI, COREY BOLASKI, JERRY UCCI, TRISTAN BLANCHARD AND TIM ARBUCKLE. VINNIE WAS SHOT TWICE. ONCE IN THE LEGS, THEN IN THE BACK AS HE WAS TRYING TO FLEE. AS VINNIE LAY HELPLESS AND DYING THIS GANG ATTACKED HIM. HE WAS KICKED REPEATEDLY IN THE FACE AND HEAD. THEY THEN BEAT HIM WITH THE SAME RIFLE THAT THEY SHOT HIM WITH. HE WAS BEATEN SO BADLY THAT HIS SKULL WAS FRACTURED AND HIS EYE SOCKETS WERE SHATTERED. THE SHOOTER, KYLE BOLASI, WAS ARRESTED AT THE SCENE. NO ONE ELSE WAS ARRESTED. VINNIE HAD MOVED TO VERMONT JUST A MONTH EARLIER TO START A NEW LIFE WITH HIS FIANCE. HE WAS 32 YEARS OLD.

WINDSOR COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY ROBERT SAND CALLED FOR A GRAND JURY. A VERY RARE OCCURANCE IN VERMONT AND THE FIRST FOR ROBERT SAND!  HELD WITH THE SOLE PURPOSE OF EXONERATING VINNIE'S MURDERERS, ADMITTED DRUG DEALERS. AT THIS GRAND JURY ROBERT SAND, MANIPULATED THE EVIDENCE TO FAVOR THE DEFENDANTS, PRESENTING EVIDENCE IN COMPLETE CONTRAST WITH THE ACTUAL EVIDENCE. HE ALLOWED AND SUBORNED PERJURED TESTIMONY FROM THE KILLERS, INCLUDING FROM THE STATE POLICE INVESTIGATOR WHO LIED UNDER OATH. HE WITHHELD KEY EVIDENCE IN THE CASE AND CONDUCTED A COMPLETE CHARACTER ASSASSINATION OF MY SON. EVEN INVITING VINNIE'S KILLER, KYLE BOLASKI, TO " STEP OUTSIDE WITH HIM" DURING A BREAK.

OVER THE NEXT YEAR WE CONDUCTED OUR OWN INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION. WE GATHERED OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS, WITNESS STATEMENTS, E-MAILS AND AUDIO RECORDINGS THAT SHOWED ROBERT SAND FALSIFIED DOCUMENTS, WITHHELD EVIDENCE AND WITNESSES, MANUFACTURED EVIDENCE, ALTERED OFFICIAL DOCUMENTS AND LIED REPEATEDLY TO US CONCERNING THE FACTS OF THE CASE. WHEN WE CONFRONTED SAND AND DEMANDED HE STEP DOWN HE THREATENED US, IN E-MAILS AND ON AUDIO TAPE, TO STOP OUR INVESTIGATION AND KEEP SILENT OR "ALL CHARGES WILL SIMPLY DISAPPEAR!

THE EVIDENCE ALSO SHOWS A MASSIVE COVER-UP CO-ORDINATED BY ROBERT SAND AND INCLUDED THE ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OFFICE AND THE STATE POLICE. THIS IS CONFIRMED BY ROBERT SAND. IN SEVERAL E-MAILS AND ON AUDIO TAPE ROBERT SAND IMPLICATED THE ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OFFICE AND EVEN THE U.S.ATTORNEY'S OFFICE. WE WENT TO ATTORNEY GENERAL LOOKING FOR ANSWERS. HE THREW US OUT OF HIS OFFICE! AT A RECENT MEETING WITH ASST. ATTORNEY GENERAL CINDY MAGUIRE SHE DENIED EVER TALKING TO ROBERT SAND ABOUT THIS CASE AT ANY TIME. WHEN I TOLD HER ROBERT SAND IMPLICATED THE ATTORNEY GENERAL'S OFFICE, SHE ADMITTED THEY HAD INDEED DISCUSSED THE CASE WITH SAND. SHORTLY AFTER THAT MEETING SHE STOPPED ALL CONTACT WITH ME!

WE STARTED A WEBSITE: www.justice4vinnie.com, WHICH TELLS THE  STORY AND FACTS OF THE CASE. A YEAR AFTER VINNIE'S MURDER WE FORCED SAND TO STEP DOWN. SPECIAL PROSECUTOR JOHN LAVOIE VOLUNTEERED TO TAKE THE CASE. BASED ON THE EVIDENCE HE BROUGHT 2ND DEGREE MURDER CHARGES AGAINST KYLE BOLASKI WITH THE SAME EVIDENCE THAT ROBERT SAND HAD FROM THE VERY BEGINNING. THE JURY DELIBERATED ONLY 3 HOURS BEFORE TURNING IN A GUILTY VERDICT! BOLASKI WAS SENTENCED TO 25 YEARS.

MASS. CONGRESSWOMAN NIKI TSONGAS CALLED FOR AN INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION INTO THE ACTIONS OF THE WINDSOR COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEYS OFFICE WHO WAS REBUFFED IN HER REQUEST BY ASST. ATTORNEY GENERAL CINDY MAGUIRE. SHE TOLD ME "IT'S NOT OUR REPONSIBILITY!"

THE QUESTIONS REMAIN:  WHY DID ROBERT SAND VIOLATE HIS OATH OF OFFICE AND ABUSE THE JUSTICE SYSTEM FOR THESE DRUG DEALERS? WHY ARE THESE MEN STILL BEING PROTECTED? WHY IS EVERYONE WILLING TO SACRIFICE THE INTEGRITY OF THE VERMONT JUDICIAL SYSTEM AND POSSIBLY THEIR CAREERS FOR THESE MURDERERS?

PLEASE HELP US TO GET JUSTICE FOR VINNIE! PLEASE SIGN OUR PETITION AND JOIN US IN OUR CALL TO GET AN INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION INTO THE PROSECUTORIAL MISCONDUCT OF ROBERT SAND AND TO HOLD ACCOUNTABLE EVERYONE INVOLVED IN VINNIE'S MURDER AND COVER-UP. NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW! ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT WOULD BETRAY IT.

WE ARE ASKING FOR AN INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION INTO THE MISCONDUCT OF WINDSOR COUNTY DISTRICT ATTORNEY ROBERT SAND WHO ABUSED THE POWER OF HIS OFFICE TO PROTECT THE MEN INVOLVED IN VINCENT TAMBURELLO JR.'S MURDER AND THEN ENGAGED IN A CAMPAIGN OF NEFARIOUS ACTIONS TO COVER-UP WHAT HE DID, INCLUDING THREATENING MR. TAMBURELLO TO REMAIN SILENT ABOUT HIS FINDINGS OF ROBERT SAND'S MISCONDUCT!
WHY DID ROBERT SAND SACRIFICE THE INTEGRITY OF HIS OFFICE AND ABUSE THE JUSTICE SYSTEM FOR DRUG DEALERS AND MURDERERS?
WHY WOULD HE WASTE HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS ON A GRAND JURY HE DIDN'T NEED AND THEN MANIPULATE THE EVIDENCE TO PROTECT THESE MEN? THE SAME EVIDENCE USED BY SPECIAL PROSECUTOR JOHN LAVOIE TO CONVICT THE SHOOTER.
WHY WOULD SGT. WILLIAM JENKINS LIE TO THE GRAND JURY TO PROTECT THESE MEN?
WHY HAVE WE HAD TO FIGHT FOR JUSTICE AGAINST THE VERY SYSTEM THAT IS SUPPOSED TO GIVE US JUSTICE?
AN INDEPENDENT INVESTIGATION IS CRUCIAL TO GET TO THE TRUTH. NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW. ESPECIALLY THOSE THAT ARE SWORN TO UPHOLD IT! PLEASE HELP US TO GET JUSTICE.
