Storyline

Detectives Briscoe and Curtis investigate the murder of Tony Legrasso, a former mafia hit man who is found dead in Central Park with six bullets in the chest. It takes the police some time before they identify him however as he had been living in another state under the federal witness protection program. He was continuing to cooperate and was scheduled to give evidence against top mob boss Alberto Napoli who ordered one of his men, Johnny DeMayo, to eliminate him. DeMayo is cooperating with the DAs office but Napoli's lawyer claims his client is mentally incompetent as a result of a recent stroke. McCoy thinks Napoli's illness is all an act. He then concludes that DeMayo isn't the shooter so they go back to square one. Written by garykmcd

Quotes

Vicky Grant: [about the man who killed her father] They were going to put him on Larry King, and get some big movie star to play him and make him out to be a hero. These wiseguys are psychos and losers, and everybody loves them. I don't get it.

Died with his boots on
30 May 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A Mafia hit-man who is supposed to be in Montana in the witness protection program is found shot to death in Central Park. Obviously he grew up on westerns because he requests to die with his Montana cowboy boots on.

Turns out that this guy has shaken his FBI handlers and that's appropriate since his street name was 'Nicky Shakes' and he's in town to discuss a book deal. But a whole lot of people are keeping tabs on him even if the FBI has fallen down on the job. It's why he winds up dead.

The guy who has the most to gain with the deceased's demise is Frank Savino who is a Mafia Don putting on a crazy act. See how Dr. Skoda gets under his skin.

Who actually does the deed is a bit of a surprise, but the motive is completely understandable.

A great Law And Order story.
