Vito graduated from the Arnold Markle Search and Seizure School.

He has been a private investigator for the past 26 years, working many high profile cases; Michael Skakel/Martha Moxley case, Jayson Williams manslaughter case in New Jersey, honeymooner George Smith case, etc. He has also worked on some of the biggest high profile cases in CT including murders, rapes, corrupt priests, etc. Vito is a regular commentator on various news programs including Bill O’Reilly, MSNBC, Nancy Grace and Glenn Beck/CNN Headline News, Fox News, Larry King Live, Star Jones/Court TV, etc. Vito appeared in the 14 episode series, 'Blood Work' on the A&E investigative network.
