Danielle Vangar is the Daughter of Mourad Topalian, an Armenian American Activist

Danielle Vangar was born in the year 1973 in the United States of America. She has American nationality and possibly Armenian nationality as well. She is of Caucasian origin and has Armenian ancestry, thanks to her father, Mourad Topalian.

Topalian (b. 1943) is an activist that is dedicated to ensuring that the world acknowledges the genocidal killing of between 600,000 to 1.5 million Armenians by Ottoman Turks during WW1. Some people, especially the Turks, however, see Danielle’s dad as a terrorist as he has been fingered as the brains behind several operations to detonate explosives aimed at Turkish targets in America.

Topalian is accused of masterminding a car bombing that detonated outside the Turkish mission to the United Nations in New York City, which injured three people in 1999.
In October 1999, he was charged with possession and storage of firearms and transporting them. He reached a plea deal in 2001 and was sentenced to 37 months in prison. He is now out of jail.

She Met Carmine Agnello Whilst Visiting Her Father in Jail

Given her father’s activities and his numerous encounters with the law, Danielle Vangar must have had a less-than-ideal childhood. She and her other family members, however, forged on and did the best that they could in the circumstances.

She also remained close to her dad, and even when he was sentenced to prison, she took to visiting him there. It was during one of such visits that she ran into Carmine Agnello.
He himself had been charged with racketeering and arson in relation to his scrap yard business in January 2000.

He also took a plea deal with the authorities, and in 2001, he was sentenced to nine years in jail. He was immediately hauled off to the penitentiary, which happened to be the same one where Danielle’s dad was.

Danielle and Agnello saw each other during one of the former’s visits to her dad, and they later got talking. They found each other quite interesting and continued having their conversations. They kept in touch even after Danielle’s father was released from prison in 2003 and started dating in the process.

Danielle Vangar Became Carmine Agnello’s Wife in 2008

The relationship between Danielle Vangar and Carmine Agnello blossomed while the mobster was in prison. In fact, their love grew so much so that once Agnello was released from jail on January 16, 2008, they went ahead to tie the knot.

The two love birds got married on the 19th of February 2008 in Cleveland, and their nuptials made the headlines. Some pointed out that Carmine had a thing for marrying dangerous women or, more specifically, women with dangerous fathers.

It is presumed that the marriage is the first for Danielle Vangar though the contrary could be the reality, given that she doesn’t bear her father’s surname. On his own part, Carmine Agnello was previously married to Victoria Gotti, the daughter of John Gotti, the head of the Gambino crime family. They were officially married from 1984 to 2003 and had three sons named John, Carmine, and Frank.

The Couple Have Three Children Together

Following their nuptials, Danielle Vangar and Carmine Agnello settled down in Cleveland and made their home in the posh neighborhood of Bentleyville in a home belonging to Danielle. They focused on building a family life together and avoiding trouble as much as possible. The couple thus stayed out of the headlines for numerous years.

It is believed that Danielle Vangar and Carmine Agnello are still married to date, as there has been no news report of a divorce. A 2018 report also has                   it that they have gone on to welcome three kids together though their names are not readily available.

The couple has also been praised for doing some acts of charity in their community. In 2018, they paid for the funeral of a nine-year girl who was the victim of Cleveland gun violence. They had previously performed such gestures on multiple occasions in the past.

Danielle and her Husband Were Charged With Multiple Crimes in 2015

Though the exact details of her educational background and professional career remain unknown, Danielle Vangar can be described as a businesswoman. She joined hands with her husband to set up an auto parts business known as Eagle Auto Parts on the east side of Cleveland.

She is actually listed as the owner, while her husband is an employee, as he is permanently banned from owning such a business as a result of his past conviction in 2001. Danielle and her husband ran their business successfully for some years but in 2015, they were charged with multiple crimes in relation to it.

They were accused of racketeering, industrial pollution, and running a multimillion-dollar scam involving stolen cars and scrap metal, etc. Danielle’s husband was charged with the most serious of offenses, while she was only charged with operating a tire storage facility without licenses as well as environmental pollution.

It was quite a trying moment for the couple as they looked at potential jail time, but Carmine was able to reach a deal with the authorities in June 2017. Under the deal, he avoided jail time, and all the charges against Danielle were dropped. He was also asked to pay a hefty fine and was allowed to resume his auto parts business.

He and Danielle most likely still run the business and have avoided any further troubles with the law.
