Lucchese crew guilty of Mob hit

On Nov. 15, 2013, cops found Meldish dead in his car with a bullet parked in his skull. Michael Meldish refused to square up his six figure gambling debt and why should he? He had his own crime group in New York. The Purple Gang were drug dealers and freelance killers for the Lucchese, Genovese and Bonanno crime families.

Meldish told Lucchese boss Matthew Madonna to "Fuck off".
Madonna, Steven “Wonder Boy” Crea, Christopher Londonio and Terrence Caldwell have been convicted in federal court of carrying out the Meldish hit. NYPD mob detectives weren't sorry to see him go. “Meldish was a stone-cold killer, it should have happened a long time ago. I call it vermin killing vermin — poetic justice.” The four gangsters face life in prison.
