On Episode 5 of VH1's Mob Wives, David Seabrook made a call to Karen Gravano in which they discussed a few things, mainly their daughter. David has been described as Karen’s husband, fiance and live in boyfriend. I am not going to try to determine his “status” in her life. She referred to him as her ex-boyfriend, so we will stick with that. I am just going to report on a few details I picked up on the other man who played a significant role in Karen’s life.
In 1995, Debra Gravano moved to Arizona to be with Sammy. She had company. Karen, her boyfriend David Seabrook, and their baby also joined Sammy in Arizona. David Seabrook had reportedly been convicted, at the age of 14, of attempted murder, but that’s nothing compared to Sammy’s history.
It turns out that David was also involved in the Devil Dog Ecstasy ring in Arizona. The police allegedly obtained 17,000 hours of wiretapped conversations over a two month period. One particular situation involved one of the “money drops” for the drugs which was $10,000 short. The wiretap caught that conversation and subsequent discussions, between David and Karen, speculating about what happened to the missing money. Since Sammy, himself, had counted the money for the drop, Seabrook felt that he took it. Karen told him to go speak to her father about it. Police were able to capture the meeting between David and Sammy, at Sammy’s construction office, on film because the window was wide open. Sammy was angry and his arms were waving violently. This allowed police to tap his office phone, since they now had probable cause that drug business was being conducted there. In another call, Seabrook was allegedly reported to tell a New York associate that he was getting rich selling drugs for Gravano.
“From the wiretap summary: ‘Dave stated that he has never made this much money in his life. ... Dave goes on to say that they are giving him (Gravano) 50 cents (per pill) on everything given to them. ... Dave mentions that this is the first time he's been on this level.’”
Dave also was recorded as saying how Sammy was a great advisor and told them how to reinvest their money into the drug operation in order to make even more money.
In the end, when police took down 46 people who were involved with the drug ring, David Seabrook was one of those arrested. While most participants got probation or short prison sentences, David did not. He was given the same sentence as Sammy's son, Gerard, 9 ¼ years.
