Dan Patrick’s wife Susan Patrick takes credit for jailing a mob accountant. That’s right– she helped put a mobbed up crook behind bars. The story has also been loosely linked to these other really bad guys named Louis Eppolito and Stephen Caracappa. We’ll get to all that briefly.
First, let’s recap a little on Dan Patrick himself before we get to the strange tale of his wife Susan Patrick. Dan’s known for being one of the greatest ESPN broadcasters. His voice is about as synonymous with ESPN as Stuart Scott’s, and he worked as a Sportscenter anchor from 1989 until 2006. He’s most known for his “en fuego” saying, which means “on fire” and is used to describe when a player is “in the zone” or on a hot-streak. Patrick decided to leave ESPN to spend more time with his kids, and his wife Susan actually reminded him that if he signed another 5-year deal with ESPN, by the time he finished the deal his kids would be out the door and in college. So he quit.
Okay, so about Dan Patrick’s wife Susan Patrick and the strange tale of the mob accountant. This guy is named Stephen Corso. He was the accountant for the mob, and it’s been reported by Huff Post that he was tied in with the two cop-assassins Eppolito and Caracappa. So this guy Corso was a family friend of Dan and his wife Susan. They apparently were at his wedding, his kid’s baptism, cookouts, and whatever else people do in the suburbs to bond. Stephen was also the Patrick’s accountant, and he stole over $800,000 from them. It was Susan Patrick who reported Corso, and she gets the credit for having testified against him. The money the guy stole was covered by insurance and paid back to the Patricks, but Corso got thrown in jail.
