A Little Update on Sammy “The Bull” Gravano

It’s been a while since we’ve heard of  Sammy “The Bull” Gravano, the former underboss of the Gambino Crime Family, who testified in New York against his boss, the late John Gotti.

So we went on  the Arizona State Corrections website and found a picture of Gravano and a little information which shows him getting released in 2019 for his conviction for selling ecstasy.  He pleaded guilty in 2001 and was sentenced to 19 years in prison.

Gravano, 68, no longer has that nice head of hair he once displayed.  He’s bald.

There have been reports that he was diagnosed with Graves’ disease,a thyroid disorder. It can cause fatigue, weight loss with increased appetite, and hair loss.

Interesting Twist: Sammy the Bull Might Testify on Behalf of Mobster Gotti Jr

Salvatore “Sammy Bull” Gravano, the legendary mob snitch who helped convict his boss John Gotti, may get an opportunity to help  John Gotti Jr. who is on trial in N.Y., according to the website Gang Land News.

The website, written by mob-beat  reporter Jerry Capeci, reports that the defense may call Sammy the Bull as a witness to refute allegations that Gotti Jr. supervised the 1990 murder of a Gambino wise guy Louis DiBono who poppa Gotti wanted dead.

“In interviews with the FBI, and from the witness stand at several trials, Sammy Bull testified that he oversaw the October 4, 1990 murder of Louis DiBono,” Gangland news reports. ” At no time did he ever include Junior as a participant in the slaying, one of three murders included in the current case, and that could be of crucial help for the defense in Gotti IV.”

Gotti Jr. is accused of racketeering and murder and all things mobsters do to run an enterprise. It is his fourth trial in five years. The other three trials ended in a mistrial.
