Despite the fact that Buttafuoco had a wife and two children, the illicit relationship continued for 18 months. According to Fisher, their dates involved dining in fancy restaurants, before spending the night in a motel. Then in May 1992 the relationship came to a bloody conclusion.
Apparently, Foster had been fostering a sense of jealousy towards Buttafuoco’s wife, Mary Jo, over the course of the affair. And that day, she enlisted the help of an acquaintance, Peter Guagenti. He helped fit a set of stolen plates on Buttafuoco’s vehicle and drove Fisher to the nearby town of Massapequa, where his family lived.
At around midday on May 19, 1992, Fisher arrived at Buttafuoco’s home. And when his wife Mary Jo answered the door, she explained that her husband had been unfaithful. However, rather than admit to the affair herself, she lied, claiming it had been with her younger sister.
