According to county Homocide Inspector Robert Meinert, Streily was in his car about to leave the shopping center when another car pulled up behind his. The driver got out, walked up to Streily's car, and shot him at close range, witnesses said. He then got back into his car, a 1971 or 1972 yellow Ford station wagon, and drove off. At least one other person was in the suspect's car, witnesses said.

Motive Sought For Slaying In Parking Lot

Police yesterday were trying to find a motive for the slaying of a West Homestead man who was shot in a West Mifflin parking lot.

Richard F. Streily, 45, of 1192 Cascade Drive, was shot in the head Tuesday evening at the Mifflin Manor Shopping Center, a few hundred yards from the West Mifflin Borough Building.

Streily, who was a liquor salesman, died at 4:15 a.m. yesterday in Mercy Hospital.

Inspector Robert A Meinert, head of the county's homicide squad, and West Mifflin police have ruled out robbery as a motive.

Meinert said Streily had a large amount of money on him that appeared to be untouched.

Meinert said witnesses told police there was no fight or struggle between Streily and the two men who accosted him.

Streily had just left a barber shop and had entered his car when a yellow station wagon drove up and blocked him.

One of the two men in the car got out when Streily left his car to approach the wagon. The man fired at Streily at point-blank range.

Meinert said police were not able to obtain descriptions of the men or the license plate number.

The murder weapon may have been a .22 caliber pistol, sources said.

Meinert said Straily had no underworld connections but was known to gamble.

2 men charged in football bettor's slaying,
by Linda S. Wilson

The 1979 shooting death of a West Homestead liquor salesman has been linked to a gambling operation, and two men have been accused of slaying a bettor who refused to pay off a large wager.

A grand jury presentment made public yeaterday charged that Richard Streily, 46, of 1192 Cascade Drive, was killed because he refused to pay $4,200 on a bet placed on a Monday Night Football game. Even though Streily had a $25,000 bank account for gambling that he kept secret from his wife, he refused to pay the debt because he insisted he bet on the winning team. The specific game is not known.

According to the presentment, Lazzaro Tantalo, who is accused of taking Streily's bet -- and insisted to the gambler that he lost -- then conspired with Benjamin Powell, 45, of 113 Abner Ave., Bon Air, to kill the salesman.

The men face charges of homicide, conspiracy and bookmaking in the Feb. 27, 1979, slaying of Streily, who was shot after leaving a barber shop in the Mifflin Manor Shopping Center in West Mifflin.

Powell has been arrested and is in protective custody in an unidentified hospital because of health problems, according to the district attorney's office. Arrangements have been made for Tantalo, 52, of 80 W. Westwood St., Mount Washington, to turn himself in.

Powell is accused of being the "trigger man" and Tantalo is accused of hiring Powell to commit the contract slaying.

Tantalo, a truck driver for Gimbels Department Store, has headed a sports betting operation, according to the presentment.

Streily, an employee of Hiram-Walker Co. in Green Tree "frequently bet on the outcome of football games, basketball games and baseball games." He made routine visits to the Piscioneri Barber Shop in the Mifflin Manor Shopping Center "for the purpose of placing sports bets," according to the presentment.

Witnesses told the grand jury that on the night of the shooting, Streily left Piscioneri's and walked to his car.

A yellow station wagon drove behind the Streily car "and the driver got out of the vehicle, approached Mr. Streily and allegedly shot him," the grand jury said. The description of the car given to police by witnesses matched Powell's.

Man charged with slaying

PITTSBURGH (UPI) -- An Allegheny grand jury Friday accused two men of arranging the February 1979 slaying of a West Homestead man over a gambling debt.

Lazzaro Tantalo, 52, of the city's Mount Washington section, and Benjamin Powell, 45, of Bon Air, allegedly were involved in the shooting death of Richard Streily, 46, in the parking lot of a West Mifflin shopping center, county homicide detectives said.

Tantalo and Powell are accused of homicide, conspiracy and bookmaking in connection with the murder. Powell was arrested Thursday, detectives said, while Tantalo surrendered Friday.

Man admits bet debt led to murder,

By Susan Mannella (Post-Gazette Staff Writer)
A Bon Air man who apparently tried to commit sucide two weeks ago pleaded guilty yesterday to shooting and killing a West Homestead man in 1979 while trying to collect on a gambling debt.

Benjamin S. Powell, 47, of 113 Abner Ave., pleaded guilty to third degree murder in the Feb. 27, 1979, shooting of Richard Streily, 45. Streily owed $4,200 to a third man, Lazarro Tantalo, who is described by police as the head of a sports betting operation. Powell and Tantalo were indicted by a county grand jury in March 1981 for conspiring to kill Streily because of the debt.

Tantalo, 52, of Mount Washington, who was accused of hiring Powell to collect on the debt, pleaded guilty to book-making charges and was given a grant of immunity from prosecution for the killing after he told the district attorney's office that Powell admitted shooting Streily.

Common Pleas Court Judge Patrick R. Tamilia took the guilty plea under advisement and ordered both a report on the defendant's background and a psychiatric report to make sure Powell understood the consequences of pleading guilty.

Powell took "a lot of pills and was ready to go to sleep" at his home on May 20 after telling his wife he wanted to die, according to police. When police entered the home, they found Powell with a rifle but he surrendered it to officers after about a half hour. Powell was hospitalized after the incident and told Tamilia yesterday that he is to undergo treatment for alcoholism.

Deputy District Attorney Kim Riester said Tantalo would testify that he had made efforts to collect the debt from Streily, a regional whiskey salesman known by the nickname "Whiskey Dick." Riester said Thomas Sacco of Dormont, the victim of a contract murder case in which William "Eggy" Prosdocimo of Squirrel Hill and William "The Codfish" Bricker of the Northside were found guilty, was asked at one time to try to collect the debt.

Riester said Tantalo would have testified that Powell told him that he approached Streily in the parking lot of the Mifflin Manor Shopping Center and that Streily "came out of the car like a tiger." During a scuffle, Powell tried to hit Streily with his gun and it went off.

A trial for Powell was delayed last year when another witness who had been given a grant of immunity from prosecution refused to testify at a preliminary hearing. Regis M. Maiette of Mount Washington was held in contempt of court and jailed for refusing to testify. He later testified in August 1981.

Man Gets 5 - 15 Years For Slaying,

A Bon Air man, who was once considered for the death penalty in what was believed to be a contract killing, has been sentenced to five to 15 years in prison for the fatal shooting of a West Homestead man. Calling him "the most remorseful man I've seen before me in 13 years on the bench," Common Pleas Judge Patrick R. Tamilia imposed the term yesterday on Benjamin Powell, 47, of 113 Abner Ave., for the slaying of Richard Streily, 46, on Feb. 27, 1979. Powell, who could have received a maximum of 10 to 20 years in prison for his guilty plea to a charge of third-degree murder, had been considered for the death penalty by the district attorney's office after the county grand jury concluded that Streily's slaying was a contract killing. The grand jury had concluded that Streily was killed because he owed a $4,200 gambling debt to Lazzaro Tantalo, a reputed Mount Washington sports-betting figure.

But, charges against Tantalo, 52, of 80 Westwood St., were eventually dropped after he agreed to testify that Powell had told him he had shot the victim during a struggle in the parking lot of the Mifflin Manor Shopping Center in West Mifflin. The victim, a liquor-distributor salesman, left four children. After the grandjury presentment, Powell made what he thought was an "off-the-record confession" to a county homicide detective. The detective was obliged to report the confession to his superiors.

In his confession, Powell said that he and the victim began fighting after the defendant blocked Streily's car as he tried to leave the parking lot. Powell said the gun discharged when he tried to fight off the victim.

Powell, who has been hospitalized for two suicide attempts, has said he became an alcoholic because of his guilt feelings over the killing, which he said was unintentional. Saying that "I have no doubt you would, if you could, trade places with Mr. Streily," Tamilia added that he was imposing a sentence that was less than the maximum because of the defendant's remorse and his lack of a criminal record.
