NYPD fills in details over the death of mob boss Francesco Cali

Giovanni Gambino told that 53-year-old ‘Franky Boy’ was a constant feature in the New York charity scene and was someone he looked up to growing up. The head of the notorious family was shot and killed in a hail of bullets in Staten Island, New York, on Wednesday night in a slaying that shattered a 30-year peace between the Five Families in the Big Apple and could lead to more bloodshed. ‘He was the good wise guy that went after bad wise guys’, he said. ‘The wise guy that showed class. He was the one that had the “it” factor, growing up with my friends we all looked up to him. He gave a great impression. Nobody gets away with anything . Especially killing a good man,’ he dded. Giovanni’s cousin Carlo founded the Gambino crime family in 1957 when he immigrated from Italy and his father Francesco ‘Ciccio’ Gambino was a leading member. Francesco died in federal prison in 2012 while serving a 30-year sentence for trafficking heroin from Sicily to the United States. Cali maintained a ‘low-key’ lifestyle, was a good friend to his family and always supported his passion to become a writer, Giovanni says. Cali is the basis for the protagonist in his novel, The Prince of Omerta.
