Rats! Mob informants

SALVATORE 'SAMMY THE BULL' GRAVANO—Underboss of the Gambino crime family, Gravano agreed to cooperate with police in October, 1991, becoming a key to the conviction six months later of his boss, John “Dapper Don” Gotti. He admitted to involvement in 19 murders, but served only 5 years due to his assistance in catching his former boss
After entering the witness protection program, Gravano moved to Phoenix, Arizona and earned hundreds of thousands of dollars from this book, “Underboss.” He then started up an Ecstasy ring with his family, was caught, and will likely die in prison.
