Listen to part two of this conversation with Nino, here.
In the mid 90s, the Stoccos seemed like any other Aussie family. A mum and dad, Connie and Gino, and their two teenage kids, Mark and Christina.But in 1997, the breakdown of this seemingly happy family marked the beginning of a dark new chapter for Gino of crime and violence. It was a path he wouldn’t walk alone though, as little by little, Gino’s son Mark, would join him in his offending. What started as stolen groceries or a fall out with an employer would manifest into serious lawlessness. The likes of which would see the pair listed amongst Australia’s most wanted criminals.
