PORTSMOUTH - A week before International Longshoreman's Association president Bill Roach's home and car were sprayed with six bullets, a facsimile of a tombstone with his initials on it was left at his place of business - the state-owned port.
Fifteen months prior to the August 24 shooting at his Rye home, Roach told the state Attorney General's office that Port Director Geno Marconi claimed to know a sniper he'd asked to "assassinate" Port critics.
By now I'm sure your aware of the drive by shooting that took place in Rye, at port employee Bill Roach's home.
"Mr. Roach stated that he considered Mr. Marconi's statement to be serious," according to the AG's report."Mr.Roach stated that he did not report this matter to the police and that he did not come forward sooner because he feared retaliation from Mr. Marconi."
Roach publicly urged Governor John Lynch not to reappoint Marconi to his job managing the Port, while pointing out numerous perceived shortcomings, including Marconi's use of racist and sexist language.
Roach also published racist, homophobic and sophomoric emails sent from Port Authority computers to state- and city-owned computers used by Marconi, Shattuck, Cumings and McQuate at their jobs.
Roach also alleged Marconi and other PDA employees used public vehicles for personal business, dropped private moorings using public forklifts, stored private boats on public property and accepted gifts of fish, fowl and liquor.

Police said at least four rapid gunshots were fired at the home of William Roach III, 200 Sagamore Road, at 4:30 a.m., shattering the rear windows of a car in the driveway, piercing a hole in the siding and penetrating the house.
Roach, a part-time harbormaster in Portsmouth, "told us a few things and we are doing some follow up on them now," Rye Police Chief Kevin Walsh said.
Roach, union president for the International Longshoreman's Association, was one of eight Longshoremen who sought protection under the Whistleblower's Act after filing complaints against the Port Authority, citing misconduct by Port Director Geno Marconi -- specifically his use of racial slurs, sending of lewd e-mails and accepting gratuities.
Following an investigation by the state, Marconi was reprimanded, but unanimously reinstated to his post by the Executive Council last September after agreeing to take diversity training and apologizing to the council for his use of derogatory language.
A week later, Roach filed a complaint with the Department of Labor, accusing Marconi of retaliation against the union by kicking them off a job handling cargo from scrap metal ships in Portsmouth Harbor.
Neither Marconi nor Roach could be reached yesterday for comment.
Because Roach is a public employee, the attorney general's office was alerted to the investigation.
