NFT: Gene Gotti suspect in mob hit

ajr2456 : 3/14/2019 11:10 pm
The Gottis are back in town — and the bloodshed could just be beginning.

Police are taking a serious look at whether Gambino crime family boss Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali was whacked in an internal war for control — with one of John Gotti’s brothers and a key associate fresh out of prison and possibly looking to seize power, law enforcement sources told The Post on Thursday.

When Gotti got out in late 2018, they were already conjecturing about him trying to take back power. That after Frank Cali had been running a much more old school, low key operation

They said it was the first high profile gangland style hit since Castellano in 1985
These things gotta happen every five years or so.

Ten years. Helps get rid of the bad blood. It’s been ten years since the last one.
Side note, the youtube clicking as related brought me to this

Apparently Cologero in a Bronx Tale & Matt Bevilaqua from Sopranos (among many other roles) went to jail being a junky who got caught up in a murder wrap (he didn't do it, but was there and went away)

Really poignant as Chaz Palminteri is lamenting how he wrote lines in his movie that directly applied to Lillo (wasted talent among other lessons from that movie)

I had no idea

about the Gotti angle. Didn't think he had much power to go against the zips! I'm thinking a hit over not sharing in drug profits with the Men of Honor back in Sicily !
They're fighting over control
