Gambino crime family boss shot dead outside Staten Island home

Shooting him six-times then running over him with a pick up truck seems to have been a nice touch.

 

 

The heir apparent to the Gambino crime family reportedly said thanks but no thanks to its top job.

According to news site DNA


info New York, Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali, 49, refused an offer to become “Godfather” of the largest Mafia organization in the U.S. at a secret meeting, to the shock of Gambino bosses and his fellow captains.

Music please:

 

 

Sources who attended the meeting told the website that Cali told his Mafia associates, “I don’t need the money, the headaches.

I am okay with things and I am below the radar and not an attention-seeker.”

They also said that Gambino bosses were willing to accept his decision.

Earlier reports suggested that it was Cali’s lack of lust for the limelight that propelled his choice to be new head.

But others believe the report of his turn down is nothing more than a clever ruse put together by the crime family.

Cali was shot several times outside his house in the Todt Hill section of Staten Island around 9:20 p.m., the New York Post reported.

His family sat helplessly inside the home as Cali was murdered.

He was rushed to Staten Island University Hospital North and pronounced dead.

But the ambush outside Cali’s outer borough home was “disrespectful,” one source told the New York Post.

A neighbor of Cali’s told the New York Times that he heard a burst of gunshots just after 9 p.m.

“I just heard the pow-pow-pow-pow-pow,” said the 58-year-old, who identified himself to the paper as Salvatore.

Cali became the notorious crime family’s acting boss in 2015, replacing then 68-year-old Domenico Cefalu, according to the New York Daily News

Federal prosecutors in Brooklyn had referred to Cali in court filings in recent years as the under-boss of the Gambino organization, related through marriage to the Inzerillo clan in the Sicilian Mafia.

He was known for keeping a low profile, in stark contrast to the flashy style of the late former boss John Gotti, according to the Post.

“He was a real quiet old-school boss,” a police source told the newspaper, referring to Cali.

The Gambino Family was once among the most powerful criminal organizations in the U.S., but federal prosecutions in the 1980s and 1990s sent its top leaders to prison and diminished its reach.

Cali was considered a unifying figure in the family, credited with recruiting new immigrant gangsters from Italy and focusing on the heroin and Oxycontin trades, the Post reported.

His only mob-related criminal conviction was a 16-month sentence in 2008 on an extortion charge connected to a failed attempt to build a NASCAR track on Staten Island, the Daily News reported.

Cali, who had roots in Sicily and ties to the Sicilian Mafia, was the highest-ranking organized crime figure to be murdered in New York City since 1985, when Paul Castellano was assassinated outside Sparks Steakhouse in Manhattan, according to WPIX-TV.

THE END

    The key element of this story is Crime Family. The sale of narcotics and other illegal itams has a sad and sick conclusion every time. There are no winners in drug addiction!

      No argument here Bad Business, he will not be missed.
      If we had a serious FBI and CIA they would be gone in this country already. Of course I know the CIA is not to work on U.S. soil but that of course is a complete joke.
