Many police sources say that anyone who shot Francesco "Frankie Boy" Cali riding on the mobster's Hilltop Terrace in the Todt Hill section, stopped, then punished the engine in reverse, who crashed into Cali's Cadillac SUV parked.
The force of impact has been knocked out the license plate from the SUV and it seems investigators are done intentionally to get Cali's attention.
As soon as Cali arrived outside the house, sources said, the video showed two men speaking and then shaking hands. Cali seems to be unaware, because he has returned his killer to place the license plate behind the SUV.
It was when gunman took a 9mm handgun, held it in two hands ̵1; as if he was trained, the sources said – and opened fire.
The video is said to be grainy and not released because the suspect's face is not visible. The NYPD continues to grow in the neighborhood in search of clearer videos.
Cali's wife and son were at home at the time, saying the sources of an unusual event in the organized crime crime – which, in his time, followed certain rules that kept of targets from punching in front of their family.
News Witness witnessed Cali's mugshot from 2008, when he swore guilty in a procrastinatory procedure involving a failed attempt to build a NASCAR track on Staten Island. He was sentenced to 16 months behind bars and released in 2009. He believes he has taken the stones of the well-known Gambino crime family in 2015.
Departure experts are cautious of possible conflicts which appears in the family of the crime, especially after the brother of former Gambino leader John Gotti has recently been released from prison. Gene Gotti is a chosen captain.
They say the type of hit – in his home, with no real attempt to hide what happened – indicating that it was a killing message. The question for the detective is what type of message was sent.
This is the first time that a top mob in New York City has been killed for more than 30 years.
The last Mafia boss who was shot dead in New York City was Gambino don Paul Castellano, murdered outside a manhattan steakhouse in 1985 in the direction of Gotti, who was then taken.
Cali kept the lower profile than Gotti.
With his beloved double-breasted suit and overcoats and hairless swept-back hair, Gotti became known as Dapper Don, his smiling face in all the tabloids. As the prosecutors tried and failed to bring him down, he was called Teflon Don.
In 1992, Gotti was condemned to Castellano's murder and many other crimes. He was sentenced to life in prison and died of cancer in 2002.
