    He was first arrested, for larceny, at age 14, and before he left his teens he had added armed robbery and assault and battery to his rap sheet.
    While in the Air Force, he spent time in the stockade for assault and for going AWOL.
    He used his status as an FBI informant to get members of the Patriarca crime family busted, then moved into the resulting power vacuum.
    He ran New England's extortion, loansharking, bookmaking and protection rackets.
    FBI agent John Connolly tipped him off about his pending arrest (1995).
    After his status as an FBI informant was revealed, former crime associates began cooperating against him, leading to the discovery of secret graves of his victims and an additional 19 murder charges.
    When his wife got tired of life as a fugitive, he and his favorite mistress went on the lam together instead.
    When arrested in Santa Monica, he reportedly had 60 weapons and $800,000 cash in his apartment.
    Growing up, his family lived in poverty after his dad lost an arm in an industrial accident.
    He (somehow) received an honorable discharge from the Air Force.
    According to associates, he forbade the drug dealers paying him protection from selling heroin or PCP and from selling to children.
    He inspired the character of Frank Costello (portrayed by Jack Nicholson) in the Oscar-winning film 'The Departed.'
    He was allegedly spotted at a showing of 'The Departed' in San Diego (2006).
    The property managers of the apartment building where he and his mistress were arrested said that they were ideal tenants who always paid the rent on time.
