Stepson charged in Spencer death

Stepdad slain, body put in crawl space

Worcester District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr. right speaks about the homicide. Behind him is Spencer Chief David Darrin. (T&G Staff/BETTY JENEWIN)

SPENCER —  A Spencer man will be arraigned on a charge of murder today for allegedly killing his elderly stepfather, wrapping him in plastic and then tucking the dead man's body into a crawl space beneath their lakeside home yesterday morning.

Worcester District Attorney Joseph D. Early Jr. said Jason Masiello, 37, of 35 Pine Acres Road, was arrested by Spencer police soon after they arrived at the home and found 88-year-old Michael Iagallo dead shortly before 11:30 a.m.

“Nancy Iagallo, 68 years old, the mother of the defendant, is the person who made the 911 call,” Mr. Early said. “She returned home, there was some questioning with regards to, 'Where is your father?' Shortly after that point a call was made to the Spencer Police.”

Mr. Iagallo was seen alive earlier yesterday morning, Mr. Early said. He declined to discuss a motive but said there were no prior indications that there would be any violence at the home. There were no restraining orders in place, he said.

Mr. Early said the state medical examiner will unwrap the body, which had been wrapped in plastic and a blanket, and work to determine exactly how Mr. Iagallo died. He said the body was under a trap door to a crawl space below the home. The area is accessible from inside and outside, he said. He declined to say where the slaying took place, inside or outside.

The news that Mr. Masiello had been arrested did not surprise Nancy Mandella who lives a few houses away on the dirt, dead-end road. She said the few times there was trouble in the quiet neighborhood, it was always Mr. Masiello.

“It's just terrible,” she said, adding that Mr. Masiello had been behaving oddly recently.

“He was digging holes everywhere in the yard,” she said. “But he was always doing stuff to the house that didn't need to be done.”

Mr. Masiello was arrested in November of 2010 after he allegedly fired guns inside the remote Pine Acres Road home. Several neighbors called police to report hearing the shots and officers wrote in their report that they arrived and found him standing in the driveway with his fingers laced behind his head.

When he was arraigned on those charges, he was taken from the court by ambulance. A judge ordered him to remain drug- and alcohol-free when he was arraigned in 2010.

Scanner transmissions during the incident yesterday indicated there were no guns inside the house, though there were knives.

Thomas Lynch who lives on Pine Acres Road said most of the homes are year-round residences though only Mr. Masiello was staying at the house during the winter months when Mr. and Mrs. Iagallo would go to Florida.

While he knew them only in passing, he was aware that Mr. Masiello had been in trouble before.

Neighbors said Mr. Masiello had a brown dog that sometimes rode in his truck and that his mother and stepfather may have had a smaller dog, as well.

Scanner reports indicated that Mr. Masiello was rounding up the dogs when police were on their way to the home.

Mr. Early said last night that state police detectives had obtained search warrants and were executing them. He declined to release details of the crime because of the ongoing investigation.

“The investigation, although the murder happened this morning, it's still in its infancy,” Mr. Early said. “We're letting the state police, the Spencer Police, crime scene services and the chemists do their job.”

Mr. Masiello was being held without right to bail at the Spencer Police Department. He will be arraigned today in Western Worcester District Court in East Brookfield on the single count of murder.

The last murder in Spencer was in 2010 when Michael Khoury allegedly killed his wife, shot and wounded their horse which survived, lighted their home on fire and fatally shot himself.

Subject: Bump

Terry — On the eve of the Republican convention, Romney and Ryan are ahead by two in Ohio, three in Virginia, one in Wisconsin, and one in Florida.

The RNC promises "a bump" in the polls after the convention. Mitt calls this his "pivotal" opportunity to seize a permanent lead in his quest to take over the White House and Senate.

If Mitt gets a polling bump and wins these four key states, it could be impossible for us to recover. We must raise $500,000 by Mitt Romney's primetime speech on Thursday. We only have 72 hours. Can you give $5?

Mitt is going to use his primetime moment attempting to destroy President Obama. We must fight back. Please help us stop him and Ryan right now:

To: Terry Travers <>

Terry --

Want to know why Romney put his money on the right-wing wonder boy, Paul Ryan, as his VP candidate?

You're going to see this week. When Ryan gives his big Convention speech and starts railing against Obamacare, those Tea Party fanatics are going to be leaping off their backsides to donate whatever they've got to defeat the President.

There's no way around it -- combine all this Tea Party money with all that Koch Brothers' Super PAC cash, and we're in danger of letting this thing get out of hand.

We've gotta close the gap and fight back before it's too late.

Chip in $3 or whatever you can muster to back up President Obama with a Democratic majority >>

Now, we're coming down to the home stretch - the election is only a couple months out. I don't want that feeling in my gut after it's over where I wish we'd done more.

So I need y'all with me right now. Step up, hit 'em where it counts, and send these guys packing once and for all:

C'mon now!

Thanks for speaking out on Internet Censorship

Dear friend,

Thank you. Your name has been added to the petition and your comments will be delivered to your Senators and Representative.

Another great way to make sure Congress feels a lot of heat on this issue is to spread the word to your friends and family so they know what's going on. You can just forward the sample letter below.

Spreading the word is critical, but please only pass this message along to those who know you -- spam hurts our campaign.

Thanks for all you do.

--The Political Action Team

Here's a sample message to send to your friends:

Subject: Say NO to Internet censorship


When the Senate comes back into session next week, they'll be voting on whether to grant themselves the power to turn off parts of the Internet. Fun sites you YouTube. Informative sites like Wikipedia. Political sites like

If enacted, new laws would force Internet Service Providers to block websites that any corporation suspects violates a copyright or suspects doesn't monitor it's users' content close enough for copyrighted materials. That means that any website, foreign or based in the U.S., could be wiped out on suspicion and made unavailable to everyone in the world.

The Senate must reject the Internet Censorship Act. Sign this petition and spread the word.

And We Bid You Goodnight


The following is my favorite bible verse. It's Ecllesiastes 1:15 and it's in the latin of St. Jerome at the top with the Douay-Rheims English below. That seems kinds of stilted so I translate it myself below those two versions.
perversi difficile corriguntur et stultorum infinitus est numerus

The perverse are hard to be corrected, and the number of fools is infinite.
