The Journal News is reporting that Anthony Piliero of New Rochelle was arrested at his home this morning and charged in a murder-for-hire scheme.
A quick Google search for "Anthony Piliero New Rochelle" turned up several hits (pardon the pun) which would mean, unfortunately, that he and I went to school together.

There was a Facebook page which has been recently deleted.
Anna and Anthony Piliero were interviewed by a local television station in Tampa last summer after Piliero's wife ran an ad on Craiglist complaining about a condo management company in Florida.
How angry is Anna Piliero at Brett and Jenny Hawker? So angry that the New York resident posted a message for all the world to see on "Craig's List" in which she warned people about the Hawkers' company, "Condo Management Solutions."
Ms. Piliero and her husband, Anthony, bought a new condominium at a Tampa development called, "The Pinnacle at Carrollwood," in 2005. Ms. Piliero says things were fine for about a year after she retained the Hawkers' services. Then, in Dec. 2007 or Jan. of 2008, Ms. Piliero says Brett Hawker called her to say their tenant was in the hospital and could not pay the rent.
However, we found the tenant, Greg Kelly, at the Piliero's condominium. He says he was not in the hospital and always paid the rent. The Pilieros' say the Hawkers owe them about $4600. They now collect their rent directly from Greg Kelly.

I called the news desk at ABC affiliate WFTST-TV in Tampa and gave them a heads up then sent them the links and asked them to let us know if they air another story with any out takes from the original piece which ran last July.
