Giovanni Gatto - The Real Sopranos

Rocco and his family were put into witness protection.
“The Sopranos” took inspiration from the DeCavalcantes. The DeCavalcantes were taken down in 2015 by New Jersey cop Giovanni Rocco. 'Giovanni Gatto' Rocco posed as a biker to snare capo Charlie 'The Hat' Stango and others. Rocco spent three years working his way up the ranks and collecting evidence to convict a dozen gangsters.

New Jersey mob boss John Riggi died in 2015 aged 90.
The downfall of the DeCavalcante family began in 1998, when associate Ralph Guarino became an FBI rat to avoid a long prison sentence after a heist of $1.6m from the World Trade Center. Between 1999-2005, about 45 were jailed, including the family's consigliere and seven capos. In March 2017 Stango was sentenced to 10 years in prison for conspiracy to commit murder. In 2016, Anthony Stango Jr. was sentenced to 6 years in prison. With the final fall of the DeCavalcante family, New York's five families took over many of the rackets in New Jersey.
