Danbury Murder Mystery-update


Murder of Zef Vulevic

• Police gag order by state prosecutor
• No one has been charged with the crime, and law enforcement officials said there were no new developments to report on Wednesday.
• Large number of media inquiries regarding case: "My phone hasn't stopped ringing," said Danbury Police Department spokesman Capt. Arthur Sullo.
• Police in Norwalk, Conn., had an arrest warrant out for Zef Vulevic-misdemeanor charge of failure to appear-Feb 18 court date
• Zef Vulaj had filed for bankruptcy five times (every year for the last four years)
• Most recent Chapter 13 case was closed in January 2004

• Vulevic and family members (ethnic Albanians) were or had been partners in several restaurants, including the following:

• Gusto Ristorante in Danbury (opened April 26, 2003)
• Fortuna Ristorante in Croton-on-Hudson, NY
• Baci Ristorante in Larchmont, NY
• a revolving restaurant, Vuli, atop the Marriott hotel in Stamford, Conn.
• two in midtown, including Fino on East 36th Street (owned with his brother Paul since 1985); and another in the Wall Street area.

• Police are focusing on events surrounding an argument that happened outside Gusto Ristorante at 11:59 p.m. on April 4. Police were called to the upscale Italian restaurant to settle a violent dispute taking place out front between Vulevic's business partner (Marash Gojcaj) and a former employee.
