Report: Gambino Crime Family Picks Domenico Cefalu As New Boss
WCBS 880’s Irene Cornell On The Story
As first reported by Jerry Capeci in his Gang Land column, the Gambinos have chosen a new boss who will keep it low key.
According to the report, 64-year-old Sicilian-born Domenico Cefalu is the man. He reportedly lives with his mother in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn and actually works for a local bakery supply company.
Cornell reports Cefalu’s style is radically different from John Gotti’s: no fancy suits, no busy social club gatherings to attract the FBI and he’ll never flip. He has a reputation as a “stand up” wiseguy.
Cefalu is out of prison on supervised release after doing time for heroin trafficking. Federal judge Jack Weinstein warned Cefalu that if he associates with known mobsters, he’ll be back in the slammer.
