Vittorio "Little Vic" Amuso (born 1934 Canarsie, Brooklyn) is a New York mobster and boss of the Lucchese crime family. He was described as a "Deadly Don" by Assistant United States Attorney Charles Rose.[1] Amuso's reign is credited to one of the most bloodiest periods in American Mafia history during the late 1980s and early 1990s, alongside his former underboss and close protégé Anthony Casso, who turned informer against him in 1994. Since the death of Colombo crime family boss Carmine Persico in March 2019, Amuso is currently the longest-serving crime family boss of the Five Families and American Mafia, dating back to 1987. Amuso has been serving a life sentence since 1992 and is currently allocated at the Federal Correctional Institution, Cumberland, in Maryland, on murder and racketeering charges.[2]

Anthony Salvatore Casso (born May 21, 1942) is an American mobster and former underboss of the Lucchese crime family. During his career in organized crime, Casso was regarded as a "homicidal maniac" in the mafia as he admitted to the government responsibility for 36 murders but most likely committed many more.[1] Former Lucchese captain and government witness Anthony Accetturo once said of Casso, "all he wanted to do is kill, kill, get what you can, even if you didn't earn it."[2] In interviews and on the witness stand, Casso has confessed involvement in the murders of Frank DeCicco, Roy DeMeo, and Vladimir Reznikov. Casso has also admitted to several attempts to murder Gambino family boss John Gotti.

Following his arrest in 1993, Casso became one of the highest-ranking members of the Mafia to turn informer. In 1998, however, the US government rescinded Casso's plea agreement and dropped him from the witness protection program. Later that year, a federal judge sentenced him to 455 years in prison.

Stephen Corso was a Certified Public Accountant working in Connecticut when he was accused of stealing more than $5 million from his clients, the IRS, and even his own business partners.  After an investigation he was notified of a pending indictment.  He fled to Las Vegas, where he took out multiple casino markers and spent the weekend drinking, gambling, and enjoying the company of various women.  

To avoid arrest upon his return, Corso had his lawyer set him up with a meeting with the F.B.I.   He agreed to become a confidential informant (CI) in an effort to avoid prison.
