Personal Quote:

[when asked if he felt he was an assassin] "Assassin"? Sounds so exotic. I'm just a murderer. See more »


He has erroneously been described as a "Mafia killer". He wasn't--not being Sicilian, he could never have become a member of the Mafia. He was a contract killer who often worked for various Mafia families and figures, but he did not belong to the Mafia and, in fact, also committed contract killings for non-Mafia criminal organizations and individuals.
