Jailed wise guy turns to rat Sammy the Bull

86-year-old Gambino wiseguy Frank 'Frankie Loc' Locascio is doing time for a murder he says he didn’t commit. The former underboss to John Gotti is attempting to overturn his 1990 conviction for the murder of mobster Louis DiBono. He's looking for help from Mafia turncoat Salvatore 'Sammy the Bull' Gravano.

Included in Locascio’s papers is a signed statement from Gravano, in which the rat says that he forgot to tell prosecutors that Locascio wasn't involved with DiBono’s murder. Gotti wanted DiBono dead because he repeatedly failed to show up to meetings with Gotti, according to Gravano.
Gravano says Locascio tried to save DiBono's life with a tribute. Gotti was angered by this and demoted Locascio to 'acting consigliere.' Gravano was bumped to underboss and DiBono's fate was sealed.

DiBono took 4 bullets in the head for his deemed disrespect.
