"Hearings had come to a close in nineteen fifty, one local investigations had been opened up targeting the New York mob. With help from the FBI the DA's office was going after Anastasio harder than they ever had before one of the first ways to bring him down was through. The. Thanks to his brother's testimony. The FBI tried everything to give on a study of the boot. They even resorted to low bar tactics like using his birth name Umberto on memos to make him sound more foreign. Unfortunately on Astara couldn't be deported because he was unwanted. Because of his murderous reputation, the Italian government's refused to take him back. The FBI would later drop the deportation angle. The government's next approach was an Oldie but a goodie, it was time to bring in the tax man. Starting in January fifty-three, the DA's office went off on. Stars for tax evasion. The Fed claims that Anastasius Fort Lee mentioned estimated at one hundred, twenty, five, thousand dollars was evidence that he had unreported income. They were arguing that there was no way. He could afford the house on the salary revolted. He spent the next year trying to find as many people as possible to testify. Eventually, they found a few potential witnesses on as bodyguard vincent, macree Benedict Cre- Vincent's brother and the contractor who built the Fort Lee Mansion and a plumber named Charles Ferry, both of the macree brothers new on stasio reputation as a killer and likely wanted to put him away before he decided to turn on them to Charles. Ferry was willing to testify for the same reason he had done eight thousand, seven, hundred dollars worth of plumbing work on Anastasia's home which meant he could provide a direct link to Anastazia unreported income. In one, thousand, nine, hundred, fifty, four, ferry testified to grand jury. And on March Tenth Nineteen Fifty, four honest was indicted on two counts of tax evasion. He was expected to pay eleven thousand, seven, hundred and forty two dollars in taxes that he had withheld. Knowing, he could beat the trumped up charges and court on astounds you turned himself in and got out on ten thousand dollars bail. According to honest as as accountant Anastazia had made around five thousand, nine, hundred, sixty dollars in nineteen, forty, seven and paid seven, hundred, eighty, nine dollars in taxes. But the government claim those figures should actually be twenty, five, thousand, seven, hundred, twenty, eight dollars, an eight, thousand, nine, hundred, and thirty dollars respectively. They alleged that Amazon was failing to report the prophets he made from his rackets. Whereas Anastazia claimed that all his income came from his Madison Dress Company out in Pennsylvania. which everyone knew was blatantly false given his history on the docks, and of course, there were potentially three witnesses who could testify that honest as you had more money than he was letting on but not for long. In April of Nineteen fifty four. Vincent McCready was found in the trunk of an abandoned car. He'd been dead for days. Police found a little black book that Vincent kept with the names of the men he worked for a good number of whom were mobsters. One name that came up was of course Albert. Anastasia. Word on the street was that Estonia had been behind the hit unfortunately, there was no evidence to go after him. On a STASIO was on house arrest and they couldn't find any other truman. Not long after Vincent macree was found his brother Benedict suddenly disappeared the macree brothers case was looking a lot like the Mangano brothers one found dead one disappeared forever. With two rats out of the way. Honest. Now's your felt more confident than ever that if he could get away with murder. He could get away with anything. But the feds were determined they may have lost two witnesses, but they still had Charles Ferry and in the fall of nineteen, fifty four, they were going to make sure that ferry helped put Albert. Understands your away for good. October nineteenth saw the start of fifty two year old Anastas tax evasion trial. Over the next several weeks, it came to light that Anastazia Aziza used his wife as his legal shield. The house was in her name and her name was used to pay off the contractors. As a result, the jury was deadlocked and in November, nine hundred and fifty four, a mistrial was declared. If honest, Don's your thought he was finally in the clear he was wrong. A new trial was scheduled for the following spring except there was one major blow dealt the feds, their last witness, Charles Ferry and his wife. Were Miss. Fearing retribution from Albert Anastasia the ferries have moved to Florida to get this far away from New Jersey as possible. They'd hoped that by putting distance between themselves and the Mafia boss, they could leave all this dangerous business behind them. Instead. The Mafia came for them in late April nineteen, fifty, five ferries son-in-law went to check on their house and discovered blood all over the floors and walls but no bodies cop scoured the scene and the surrounding area, and they couldn't find one clue leading to their presumably decided couple ferries. Disappearance was all over the press. Their story, the macree brother story, and the tax evasion trials all appear to connect back to on a stand here and yet honest stasio himself didn't seem bothered by his name showing up in the headlines. In fact, he was more confident that in no time at all, he would be back in business running his rackets. Except the commission was becoming worried by the bad press. Honest as his actions, put them under the microscope soon, discussions being made as to what to do about this annoying problem. Almost.

Well, said the police, we've got him at last, this is it. Relevance was the star witness. He was gonna put all burn recuperated away, including Albert at his stats here. And so they stashed him at a motel and Cohen called the Half Moon a hotel. Up on the sixth floor and he was a twenty four hour police guard five policemen. And just as everybody was thinking, okay, his Albert we've got a bit less. He's gonna go electric. That's it. Relishes is found dead. Somebody threw him out a window. Now. We now know that in fact, would happen the commission got really worried because it's one thing to have some of these other Joe Bohm's from Burma cooperated, go away. It's another thing for somebody like Albert Anastasia, that's that's the problem so much for voiding the death penalty after the Laci is testimony in nineteen sixty three. The state shifted the way they went after the mafia over the coming years, they were able to put more pressure on mobsters. Thanks to new investigative tools and laws. It started to become a real headache for the mob that one of their own could be cornered to such an extent that they would start talking. A lot of high profile mobsters got wacked before they could even consider cutting a deal with the feds. Nobody was certain who among them could be trusted in the nineteen eighties. The Genovese family were unaware that Peterson. Savino a trusted associate had become an informant for the feds and was wearing a wire here. So when RAB again, it's important time to stand for many years decades Junji Gandhi escape. The observation of FBI and would finally happened was ju- Canty who during his decades, both as a soldier, a capital and later the boss of the family under the slightest suspicion would kill anybody. He thought might be a squier a weasel, and there was only one blunder that he made in his life. He trusted somebody by the name of pita. Savino wasn't even a made guy, but for some reason, one of the reasons was at Savino is bringing in millions to the family. To something called a windows racket. Savino was a terrific earner and. Jay Gandhi began to trust him for years. Even though the other members of other mobs families were suspicious of Savino, and that was the one blunt. That you gave debate Savino got into trouble, became involved in FBI murder investigation and decided to cop out, take a plea and cooperate and he wore a wire and for the first time, the f. b. I was able to get jig Gante talking a bit, but Savino had firsthand evidence of all the record. Some of the rackets that you gave he was involved in and by implicating. Ju- Gandhi, it was Savino. Nobody else who brought him down the most high-profile case was undoubtedly Joe Masino boss of the Bonanno crime family. He flipped in two thousand and three to avoid the death penalty, and he took everyone down with him. It was a betrayal of epic proportions. A number of things happened. He was in prison in Colorado, which is known here in the state says flax in Florence, Colorado, and it is a prison that appears to be one story high. If you've ever visited it's one story and you wonder, well, how could it be a prison less because the other ten stories are underneath the ground. It's a very formidable place. Very barren place at Cogan a former FBI special agent tales Masino for more than a decade. It's where most of the death row federal inmates end up on your high profile, terrorists and high profile. Convicted criminals end up. So Joe was sentenced to Florence Colorado prison. And he did not have an easy time. Physically there. For the most part, Joe Messina at nowhere to go except to the deaths chamber. And therefore he decided to become a cooperating witness. With no real promises from the government other than what ever he would share and testify to in court. Would be known to judge. Can through Joe Messina's attorney. There could be a request made for reduction of sentence. It's all Joe Massena new. That the the court would allow a reduction of sentence application to be made. If you're facing the death penalty, that's not a bad opportunity to have a reduction of sentence heard by judge. Jeffrey select is.

They're going to check on. He's not in the bed, the windows open, and there's a the sheets are tied to the radiator. It looked like an audacious escape attempt until the detectives. See the scene six storeys below and help out the window. Six floors below five fours on a restaurant roof attached hotel. There's relatives body'll, twisted, he's dead. Now, the question is. You did it. Kid twist wouldn't be testifying in any trials. Kid twist. He became known as the canary who could sing, but could not fly. Somebody, threw him out a window. Now. We now know that in fact, would happen the commission got really worried. Because it's one thing to have some of these other Joe Bohm's from Bergen cooperated, go away. It's another thing for somebody like Albert Anastasia, that's that's the problem. There was grand jury testimony by the five, policemen, all of them testified. Incredible. They all fell asleep at the moment that out that relics went out the window who would have thought. I knew nothing. They heard nothing. They sought. Person persons on known a lot of people suspected as the cops themselves threw him out the window. With that. The case against Albelda facet went out the window. The commission had stepped in to save him, but times had changed for Anastacia, even though kid twist, never got to testify murder, Inc had suffered in the aftermath of Thomas dewey's. Relentless campaign four members of murder, Inc went to electric chair. Two of them became states witnesses. And with that, that pretty much caused the bourbon cooperated to disintegrate who's really no no point in continuing it. So with lucky Luchino behind bars, the commission disbanded, murdering, cooperated, and relegated anesthesia to a lowly underboss position in New York's Mangano crime family to anesthesia. This was a massive slap in the face. If anything, he felt he was now ready to step up, not down. So when RAB is the author of five. Families, he became ambitious. First of all, he's getting older. He didn't want to be second to second in command or second banana, and within the mafia, there's always suspicions that somebody out somebody's out to get you that you never totally secure. And there was a hint of paranoia in stays here, demand Gano brothers were in charge. He wasn't related to them, would they would they help him out?.

"On August twenty fourth nineteen, thirty nine after an astonishing three years on the run and unsuspecting limpkey drove with anesthesia to a meeting with the FBI where he believed he would turn himself over in exchange for leniency. Lucky believes why not? He's worked with him side by side. He's giving them more to seen him kill people. There's no reason to believe the stage is going to lie to on that basis. Aniston say, did the betrayal of his life. He went to book alter and said, look, we've got this deal. Do we all settled for a plea deal. Serve maybe a couple of years of risen. They're going gonna be. There was of course no deal. Anesthesia had chosen the commission over his friend. He'd be trade his partner in crime who's ally, and that's thanks a lot. Light duty, surrendered, and of course, immediately faced charges and eventually wound up being executing electric. That act of betrayal by an statiom. Put him in the mafia's debt. I mean, that was that was a great favourite that he did for them. By all accounts. Anastasia was not happy to do it because he had become generally friendly with the book older. On March fourth, nineteen. Forty four leapt key became the only major mufti of figure to be executed by electric chair. It was a burden and a stage you would shoulder for the rest of his life. He had sacrificed his friend in order to save his own skin. If he ever felt bad about something, this would probably been the one time demonstrated Anastassios commitment to the whole commission idea which is that the organization was superior everything. Even your own personal feelings. And if as Lucia, one said, if you have to send your mother to the execution block, you do it. If it helps the organization, that's just the way it is deep down and a stage. It was beginning to fall out of love with the commission in nineteen forty. He stood alone as the head of murdering corporated when a new problem arose. One of his best hitman was arrested and charged for a murder that was committed back in nineteen thirty three. Bernie Waylon. So kid kid twist, April says, no problem, killing people much like anesthesia. They're from the same mole, but unlike anesthesia, when the authorities get the goods on him and tell him, hey, we've got the case against you. You're going to go to the electric chair. He decides it's time to talk and would that he starts giving up a lot of gangsters including Albert Annastasia rails, spilled the beans. He knew everything that murdering corporated had done. When Abe rela began to talk. He told he told about sixty three murders that he had seen himself and many of which the cops had never even heard of Nathan ward is the author of dark harbor. He just proceeded to talk for eleven days, and it was so ghoulish that it sickens to knock for. They had to replace. Them in a in a group because they just know what the the the, the bail hooking in the shootings and the incinerations and the just the all the horrors that he was describing one by one rebels, read it on his former colleagues, including the man who ran murder, Inc, rallies. It turned out at the most amazing photographic memory. Anybody at ever seen he field sixty nine to knock his notebooks. He could remember details from ten years before and significantly. He remembered a lot of details about one Albert Anastasia and among other things he said, I know about Albert Anastasia personally strangling beaten pant though. Peter panta was an outspoken union activists who got on the wrong side of the mafia when they controlled the ducks. Nathan ward. New York by thirties was the biggest port in the world. It's so much was stolen of through organized thievery that it result. It was like a national tax. That was what the whole system was nine hundred years and they each had hiring bosses. Some of them were part of the system. Others like Pantaleo had been hired despite their opposition to the corruption. It was all about whether the men respected you. And if you could get the ship turned around quickest, unloaded and loaded, then they had to hire you even if you didn't go along with some of the other things that were supposed to be done..

Nothing was off limits for the murder Inc workforce. They used guns ice picks knives their bare fists, whatever got the job done and anesthesia.

"Six months later, the plan was complete when Luchino head remaining boss, Sal, Maranzano, brutally murdered. He could now build a perfect criminal organization. I, he divided the five boroughs of New York to be run by five crime families who along with heads from buffalo and Chicago met as the commission, what they did was take the old society mafia idea and meld it with American business methods. That's really what the new mafia was all about. It would be a nationwide combine run strictly as a business and apprise the business would be crime. Basically, what they did was taken average American Corporation. The way it's run when the board of directors vice presidents executives, et cetera, and they simply copied that and made it into the overseer womanized crime. And. Amazing structure which lasted for many years. So when RAB is the author of five families when the lucky Luciano established Ahmad mafia nineteen, thirty one, he realized even though they were going to work on sort of a business profile business organization, they would try to do everything in organiz, regulated way. Killing still had to be done. Luchino also understood that they'd need a special division to enforce the newly created rules. It would become known as murder Inc. He decided we need a group of professional hitmen who could carry out whatever killings had to be done and Luchino needed, just the right person to run it. So who did he choose? None other than his favorite killer. Albert Anastacia album Anastasiou was the perfect model within mafia and stays here was recognized as. The ruthless unflinching killer. And that was why he got two two nicknames. One of them was the mad Hatter saying he was crazy. And if you wanted to kill, somebody was no way you could stop them. And the other one was Lord high executioner on the idea was he had no compunction about killing anybody. So with orders from the commission, all future murders would be conducted by these professional killers. It's were no longer personal vendettas. They were business Luchino imposed strict rules that oversaw how anesthesia and murder Inc were to operate. One of the chief oils that the commission establish was thou shalt not kill a boss. That's a no, no as to protect them all, obviously from humbling subtly killing them in the name of ambition, it's a no, no, you just don't do it. You don't kill civilians. And the reason for that, it's not a moral issues that it just brings too much heat and pointless. Not good for business. You don't kill ordinary citizens unless they've done something wrong. Here's Nate Henley. This was not because the mob was squeamish or were pacifists, but they were sort of an unwritten rule that you don't kill and out. Policemen journalists, judges politicians and prosecutors because of the intense reaction that those assassinations would cause if you killed, for example, a police officer, all of that police officers buddies, even if they're in the pay of a mobster would be guaranteed to crack down like crazy with these rules in mind and a stage. It was now set to kill whoever Luchino told him to gangsters Luciano. He can't get involved in murder. He can give an order, but he personally can't do it. That's Bernie Waylon, author of undisclosed files of the police and the old days the guy would do it himself. Now. They're gonna. Have someone else do the journey work from their office above the midnight rose candy store in Brooklyn Lucina vision of multi national cooperation started in earnest as the talian anesthesia along with Louis Leakey shelter who was Jewish, worked to carry out sanctioned murders, anesthesia turns out to be the perfect person for this job. He's the girl between who Seattle's Italian guy and a stages, talion guy, but lucky he's a Jewish guy and he's running disorganization. If you saw Burkhalter he was a thin guy. Nothing to really think of as bad guy by the apparently really was. So we'll see gives orders to stage who then works with hand in hand with Lepe and carrying out these aside. Scientists together. They hand picked team of Jewish and talion hitmen a lethal and affective combination. And the theory by using Jewish killers often was this is that somebody would finger whoever had to be marked the death and they would send over in Jewish hitman. And the idea was if the suspect was the victim was talion he wouldn't suspect somebody who didn't look at talion it. So this was part of this entire apparatus and stays you developed us to a fine craft murderer corporated..
