D-6 PITTSBURGH POST-GAZETTE B SATURDAY, JANUARY 1 1 , 2003 LOCAL NEWS CRIME Search on for suspects in Homewood, McKeesport slayings: By Michael A. Fuoco Post-Gazette Staff Writer Pittsburgh and Allegheny County homicide detectives investigating unrelated homicides Thursday night said yesterday they had not yet been able to determine who committed the slayings in Home-wood and McKeesport. County detectives made an arrest late Thursday in a shooting that left a Wilkinsburg man critically injured. In the Homewood shooting, victim Russell Jones, 20, of Home-wood, was shot multiple times at 5:51 p.m. in what police described as an ambush-type killing in the 7000 block of Hamilton Avenue. Pittsburgh Assistant Police Chief William Mullen said investigators had learned that Jones had been shot at, but not hit, in the past week. The reason for the earlier shooting and Thursday's fatal attack are unknown, he said. Jones had gone into Mika's Market, 7003 Hamilton Ave., to get Cont. from Page D-5 RICCI MARK (ANTHONY) On Thursday, January 9, 2003, age 59, of Jefferson Hills, PA; beloved husband of Elizabeth A. Dawes-Ricci; father of Lisa Ricciof San Francisco; step-father of Edward of West Mifflin and Gregory Dawes of Clairton; brother of Rudolph Ricci, Jr., of Clairton; also survived by aunts, uncles, cousins & his beloved "JAMM". Mark Ricci was one of those rare persons who, one could say, has a "beautiful mind". Successful in many ways, Ricci, along with partner Michael Kent, ran MJM Ventures, a Nevada-based corporation, that specializes in computer-statistical analysis and mathematical probability which could be applied in many varied venues. Founded by partner Michael Kent approximately 20 years ago, MJM Ventures has been written up in many business and sports-related journals, including Sport Illustrated, who in the eighties wrote articles raving about the Vegas-based " Computer-Group" that was so successful and so dominating in the Nevada World of legalized wagering that the "Computer-Group" had more influence on the Nevada wagering line than the oddsmakers themselves. The company continues to be highly successful, so successful that many of the key personnel now employed through the company have been able to become philanthropists, giving financial aid to many worthy charities in the Nevada area. Mark and Michael were both romanced by TV producers trying to interest them in doing a sport show on Sports handicapping, but this they turned down feeling the "entertainment business" could corrupt the purity of their product. Besides MJM Ventures, Ricci also produced many software programs, mostly for training purposes. Some were educational, used to teach mathematics and problem-solving. Some he used in classes and seminars, for Ricci took the time to do some teaching at various colleges, including Carnegie Mellon, his alma mater, and the University of Pittsburgh. In a few Mathematical journals , Mark Ricci also published articles on mathematics, probability theory and puzzle-design. Ricci loved teaching and was an exceptional teacher, who probably would have pursed a career in academia had MJM Ventures not been so successful. Another area he could have easily pursued for profit, was the publishing and marketing of all the innovative software he had produced, mostly done in the early eighties when the field was still young. At times Mark even helped some of the brother's film and TV production company's with special effects, such as solid -rocket fuel for the Buhl Planetarium diorama. Mark's talents seemed never to end. He even did some acting for film and TV for his brother and the "movie-gang". Whenever the "movie-gang" needed someone to play a scientist, Mark fit the bill perfectly. He was a natural at this also. Playing the Washington, D.C. federal scientist in "Night of The Living Dead" his part was to explain to the public why the dead were turning into zombies who walked the earth. Mark's brother recalls that Mark "was a quicker study than the professional actors on the set that day." He took to acting like a duck to water and knocked out his part on the first try." For a Calgon commercial, Mark was the perfect scientist, who in a parody of "Fantastic Voyage" send a team of scientist (shrunk to micro-size) in a micro-submarine inside a washing machine to study how Calgon removes gunk and scum. Mark and his wife Liz also took the time to travel extensively and "smell the roses". They saw a vast portion of the world together, traveling throughout the United States and an endless list countries, stopping at many of the world's capital-cities, plus numerous islands throughout the Caribbean and elsewhere. Mark and Liz lived a wonderful 25 year, storybook romance, and had many friends; in fact, their relationship - -m some takeout sandwiches. When he returned to his car and got in, he was shot in the upper chest by an assailant or assailants waiting in a vacant lot next to the market. Monroeville police arrested Jones in July 2001, and he pleaded guilty on Dec. 12 to receiving stolen property, theft of a motor vehicle, criminal conspiracy and criminal mischief. On the same day, he also pleaded guilty to attempted burglary, conspiracy, possessing instruments of crime and theft by unlawful taking. For both guilty pleas, he was sentenced to two years of probation. The second shooting, which occurred shortly before 8 p.m. Thursday, resulted in the death of Thomas C. Holmes, 44, of Fairview Street. County homicide Sgt. Jeffrey Ko-rczyk said witnesses heard three or four gunshots in Holmes' neighborhood. Shortly thereafter, Holmes frantically ran up to a man as he was entering his home at 637 Madi- was somehow magnetic as they drew many people together from all walks of life. Mark and Liz threw an annual picnic that had become a tradition, and it seemed to grow every year. A wonderful husband and loving father, Mark's only daughter, Lisa Ricci, interrupted her career in San Francisco to come and be with him; Mark had become a loving and "true father" to liz's sons, Ed and Gregg who loved him dearly. A brilliant mind, a beautiful heart and a wonderful soul, Mark Ricci will leave a wide hole in the social fabric of all those who knew and were connected to him. He was one of those truly genuine and irreplaceable people. Friends received Sat. 7-9 p.m. & Sun. 12-4 & 7-9 p.m. in the A. J.
