The last big mob hit - boss "Big Paul" Castellano

The Dec. 16, 1985 execution of Gambino family boss "Big Paul" Castellano and driver Tommy Bilotti signaled the arrival of the new boss: John Gotti.

Four killers decked out in matching pale trench coats with black Russian fur hats were waiting for a call from future underboss Sammy (The Bull) Gravano, who sat with Gotti inside a parked car just a half-block away. Gravano and Gotti cruised slowly past the murder scene to survey the work of their shooters.
