Vincent "The Chin" Gigante

Headed one of Lucky Luciano's five crime families of New York, and one of the few major players to survive the 50's and 60's intact. Vito Genovese trusted him implicitly.

Tried to shoot Frank Costello but missed (on purpose?).

Eventually, he was arrested and thrown in jail on drug trafficking and racketeering charges. In jail since 1997.
