Hunt for mafiaso boss Matteo Messina Denaro - Diabolik

Rare photo of Matteo Messina Denaro
In 2019, 200 cops searched farmhouses and warehouses belonging to around 30 suspected gangsters in and around Castelvetrano, the mafia boss’ Sicilian hometown. “The activities are continuing and the search for the fugitive Messina Denaro won't give even an inch," said Palermo police chief Renato Cortes.
Denaro, who once bragged he could “fill a cemetery” with his victims, has been on the run since 1993 and is believed to come and go regularly from the Italian island. He is also on Europol’s list of the most wanted fugitives. Despite this, he is thought to have succeeded the late Totò Riina as boss of the Casa Nostra. He is wanted for a string of crimes including dozens of murders. A trial got underway in the Sicilian town of Caltanissetta earlier this year in which Denaro is also accused of being among those who ordered the murders of anti-mafia judges Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino in 1992.
An Italian court sentenced Matteo Messina Denaro to life imprisonment over his role in a bombing campaign which claimed the lives of Giovanni Falcone and Paolo Borsellino, as well as many others. Denaro, 58, went into hiding in 1993 and is considered the most high-profile fugitive of the Sicilian Mafia. Denaro was already overdue to serve several life sentences for murder. Authorities have tried to close the net on him for years and arrested dozens of his relatives and aides. Diabolik remains an enigma. Few would recognize Matteo Messina Denaro, but he is one of the most sought after fugitives in the world.
Salvatore “Toto” Riina died in 2018Denaro was born into mafia greatness. His father was a high-ranking mafioso and his son quickly became favored by boss Salvatore 'Toto' Riina. Denaro established himself as a reliable foot soldier with a talent for murder. “Riina loved him.”

Denaro has overwhelming influence and protection from the Provenzano and Graviano clans. Bernardo Provenzano was a Sicilian "boss of bosses" who was head of the Corleonesi, a crime organization based in Corleone, Sicily; the inspiration for The Godfather movie franchise. With a feared reputation for brutality none will betray Denaro.

Danny Greene - The Irishman

Daniel John Patrick "Danny" Greene (November 14, 1933 – October 6, 1977) was an Irish American mobster and associate of Cleveland mobster John Nardi during the gang war for the city's criminal operations during the 1970s. Competing gangsters set off dozens of bombs, many successful. Greene gained power first in a local chapter of the Longshoremen's Association, where he was elected president in the early 1960s.

Greene pushed into Cleveland rackets and began competing with the Italian-American Mafia for control of the city. He set up his own outfit called the Celtic Club. After being forced from the teamsters he began acting as an enforcer for Alex "Shondor" Birns, a Jewish mobster.

John Nardi
He became viewed as a threat by other crime figures, including Birns. The relationship between Greene and Birns began to sour. Birns put out a contract on Greene, but despite many attempts could not kill him. Greene retaliated. On March 29, 1975, Birns was blown up by a car bomb.

On May 12, an explosion destroyed Greene's building, but he was unhurt. A second, more powerful, bomb failed to explode. So began the war between Licavoli crime family and Greene's Celtic Club.

Alex "Shondor" Birns death car
In 1976, 36 bombs exploded around the Cleveland area. It is said Greene killed at least eight of the Mafia hit men sent to assassinate him, using bombs or bullets. Greene played up the stories of the Mafia's failed assassination attempts. His bravado and flamboyant behavior added to his aura of invincibility.

On May 17, 1977, Greene's longtime ally John Nardi was killed by a bomb. On October 6, 1977, Greene visited a dentist. He left the office building and approached his car. The automobile parked next to his exploded, killing Greene instantly.
Danny Greene's murder started a crime crackdown. Hitman Ray Ferritto flipped and 22 convictions were made in relation to his death. It decimated the mob in Cleveland. 'Kill the Irishman' is a 2011 American biographical crime film starring Ray Stevenson, Vincent D'Onofrio, Christopher Walken, and Val Kilmer.
