Potential Bulger trial witness was poisoned

(Continued)

Camuti and Rakes were business associates who had known each other for years and were involved in various deals.

Ryan says Camuti asked Rakes to meet him July 16 to discuss a potential investment property, but the deal was fake. They met at a McDonald’s in Waltham and Camuti allegedly bought two iced coffees, adding two teaspoons of potassium cyanide to one and giving it to Rakes, who drank it. She said investigators found he had made inquiries online about buying cyanide.

Ryan said Camuti drove around for hours with Rakes in the car, then dumped his body in Lincoln.
