Officer Campisi was stabbed to death during an investigation into prostitution and narcotics. He was attempting to arrest a prostitute in the Hotel St. Clair on West 38th Street. The prostitute screamed and her pimp came into the room and stabbed Officer Campisi. Both the prostitute and her pimp were taken into custody a few hours later and charged with Officer Campisi's murder.

The pimp had recently been released from prison in Florida where he served five years for a robbery and assault in Miami. He was convicted of first degree murder and sentenced to life on April 10, 1968. He was released from prison on December 28, 1998. The prostitute was acquitted.

Officer Campisi was assigned to the 1st Division. He was survived by his wife, son, daughter, and sister. He was a Marine Corps veteran of the Korean War.
