His father had “Sammy the Bull” as the snitch who put him away. John Gotti Jr. may have his own snitch that could sink him.

TAMPA – Sixteen years ago, “Sammy the Bull” Gravano sent shock waves through a New York courtroom when he testified against his mob boss, John Gotti Sr.
Now another mob insider may prove key to convicting Gotti’s son on federal racketeering and murder charges that grew from a Clearwater FBI investigation.
When John E. Alite’s confession in a racketeering conspiracy charge became public this week, it confirmed what some attorneys already suspected – that Alite had flipped and is likely helping the government build its case against John Gotti Jr.
Prosecutors won’t reveal their witnesses, but three New York-area murders remain the common denominator between Alite, 46, and Gotti, 44.
