john gotti. one the worst members of the la costra nostra. f.b.i. got more information about the mafia and self incriminating evidence than another non-informant mafia member in history. even sammy "the bull" gravano kept his mouth shut about the crime family and anything self incriminating when he was surveillanced. amazingly enough sammy turned himself in and ratted gotti out. john was charged with RICO and was to serve a life sentence until his death in prison, the 61-year-old Gotti died on June 10, 2002 from complications of head and neck cancer.
john gotti went from the dapper don to the telfon don to an embassament of the gambino crime family.
