Special Agent John Finiello was shot and killed while conducting a raid on a brewery in Elizabeth, New Jersey, with several other agents from the Philadelphia Office. The agents had taken several men prisoner in the brewery's boiler room when they were surprised by a gunman who opened fire, killing Agent Finiello.

The suspect then escaped through a secret tunnel in the brewery. The man was arrested in Philadelphia and returned to New Jersey where he was charged with murder.

Agent Finiello was survived by his wife and two small children.

I am the grandson of Nicola Finiello and my grandfather would tell me about Agent John G. Finiello many times. His honesty and bravery were legendary. I wish someone would advise me as to how my grandfather was related to John.
