Read about Joe Gallo's full life story.
Gallo was suspected in several crimes, including being one of the gunmen who killed rival mob boss Albert Anastasia in a barber chair in 1957.
Gallo was nailed in 1961 after trying to extort payments from a café owner who called the police and Joey was convicted on conspiracy and extortion charges, pulling a seven to 14 year sentence.
Gallo was released in 1971 and was believed to be behind the shooting of mob boss Joe Colombo in New York's Columbus Circle in June 1971.
Joey got it himself the following April, when Colombo loyalists killed him at his 43rd birthday party at Umberto's Clam House in New York's Little Italy.
