PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Former Providence Mayor Vincent A. “Buddy” Cianci Jr. died Thursday. He was 74.

Target 12 Investigator Tim White spoke with Former Providence Mayor Joseph Paolino after the news of Cianci’s death broke. Paolino and Cianci were good friends.

“A lot of people didn’t know Buddy. They knew the caricature of Buddy Cianci,” Paolino said. “They knew the amplification of what they wanted to think of what Buddy Cianci was. They didn’t see the other side.”

Eyewitness News has learned Cianci will be buried in a family plot at St. Anne’s Cemetery in Cranston where his late daughter Nicole was laid to rest.
