A ruthless and impatient mob boss, his second son Richard was facing trial for murder in 1974. With so much evidence and a multitude witnesses, it looked like Richard would be put away, not to mention having a wet behind the ears lawyer. But Vince Oleck played the superhuman defense and managed to pull out an acquittal verdict.
Afterwards, he tried to hire Oleck away from his law firm, though Oleck declined. Forgione, accustom to getting his way, decided to send a message that people who tell him no, don't live very long. Ironically, it was Forgione who met an early death. He, his son, and pretty much his entire mob were violently killed within a week of the trial's conclusion. Rumors are high that the Blue Knight was the terminator.
