The concerns of a "total war" within the crowd are spreading after the apparent blow to Gambino's family crime boss, Francesco "Franky Boy" Cali, outside his home in New York Wednesday night due to "Teflon" Don's delay "John Gotti's brother was released from prison about six months ago," he said Thursday.
Since the release of Gene Gotti, 73, in September, after being sentenced to 29 years of heroin, the forces of the order have been concerned about the possibility of a bloody power struggle within the family, reported reports.

If Gotti, a reputed head of the family, is tied to the Cali murder, who had close ties to the Sicilian Mafia, "there will be a total war," a source told the New York Post Thursday. "The Sicilians will not sit down and let it happen".
Cali, 53, was shot several times at 9.1
Surveillance footage outside of the Cali home showed that the gangster appeared to have been pulled from his home when the bandit supported his pickup on Cali's Cadillac SUV, a police officer who has saw the video told the Daily Beast.

Then, Gambino's boss, Paul Castellano, was fatally killed off the Sparks Steakhouse in Midtown Manhattan in 1985 – an act that authorities said was ordered by Gene's brother, John Gotti, in a power move to take control of the family.
"It is in his bloodline," a source told Gene Gotti's Post, comparing the murder of Cali to that of Castellano. "This is very similar in some ways to what happened to Paul Castellano in front of Sparks Steakhouse."
When John Gotti died in prison for throat cancer in 2002, his other brother, Peter, became the godfather. The power shifted again to the Sicilian family faction after Peter was placed behind bars, with Domenico Cefalu taking control before moving to Cali in 2015.

But the police said it was too early to tell if Cali's death was linked to the mafia, not to mention the bond with Gene Gotti.
"It's total speculation," a source told the New York Daily News about a possible connection with Gotti. "But it's also something to watch out for. Was Gene trying to claim some of his business and Cali wouldn't have done it?"
The Gambino family was once among the most powerful criminal organizations in the United States, but federal trials in the 80s and 90s sent its top executives –
Cali was considered a unifying figure in the family, credited with recruiting new immigrant gangsters from Italy and concentrating on the heroine and on the heroine. Oxycontin trades, the Post reported.
No arrests were made in the Cali assassination.
