Neighbour who ran over John Gotti's son was dissolved in acid
Federal prosecutors in a racketeering trial in Brooklyn, New York, say the outraged chief of the Gambino crime family ordered Charles Carneglia, a Mob hitman, to avenge the boy's death in 1980.
According to a 44 page evidence motion, Carneglia shot dead John Favara and told an informant that acid was "the best method to use to avoid detection".
The fate of Mr Favara, a 51 year old furniture warehouse worker who disappeared five months after the crash, has remained the most prominent unsolved mystery from the bloody career of Gotti, the so called Dapper Don who died in prison in 2002.
Mr Favara was unfortunate enough to be driving home in the Howard Beach neighbourhood of Queens, New York, when 12 year oldold official Heat jersey Frank Gotti darted in front of his car on a mini motorbike.
The driver told police he was momentarily blinded by the sun and didn't see the boy.
Investigators ruled the crash an accident but Mr Favara was subjected to death threats and harassment for months, including having "murderer" spray painted across his car.
The Gottis were crushed by their son's death. Victoria Gotti, the boy's mother, would reportedly walk out to the local baseball fields late at night in the hope she would find her son alive.
When Mr Favara tried to apologise to her, she attacked him with a baseball bat. He ignored advice to move away only to disappear after leaving work one day.
The Gottis proved to police they were inin Heat 2014 jerseys Florida at the time and no arrests were ever made. The police were reportedly later told that Gotti dismembered Mr Favara himself with a chainsaw when he returned from Florida.
Investigators now believe Mr Favara was forced into a van and shot in the legs before being taken to Brooklyn. There, they believe, he was killed and later pushed into a 55 gallon, cement bottomed oil drum which was then dumped into the sea.
Gotti, who was only a captain in the Gambino family at the time, has provided New York with one of the city's most lurid Mafia careers.
Flamboyant and outspoken in public but brutal and quick tempered in private, he reportedly beat his wife and elder son regularly.
During the late 1980s he was rumoured to be earningearning cheap Heat 2014 jerseys $1 million a month from organised crime as head of New York's biggestbiggest cheap authentic Heat jerseys Mafia family.
He was dubbed the Teflon Don after twice being acquitted in court but, in 1992, hehe wholesale Heat jerseys was convicted of 13 murders and numerous other charges. He died of throat cancer in prison 10 years later.
Carneglia, 62, has denied racketeering and five murder charges. Prosecutors claim he was part of a seven strong hit squad that got rid of the Gambino clan's enemies.
