According to th New York Daily News, Massaro was allegedly fighting alcoholism and entered a rehab program on Long Island. He got off the show just hours before he was killed, according to childhood friend Keith Hanlon.
“He got out of rehab and got on the train. That was it. He got off the program and on the train, and even after 12 hours, he left,” Hanlon told the port.
Hanlon described: “He was ready to live life. Since his sister’s death, I have never noticed that he possesses that voice. Something has hit him. I really think he has begun to accept things and understand what life is.” “It finally hits me, and I’m ready. I can do it. We can do it together.” Those were exactly his words. I lost it in the Midtown Tunnel. His last words were, “I’m about to hit the Midtown Tunnel, I’ll call you.”
