Chicago Mob Keeping Its Chin Up: What Does Future Hold For Fratto & Historic Elmwood Park Regime?

October 7, 2019 – The Chicago mob’s Elmwood Park crew is preparing for capo Rudy (The Chin) Fratto’s move into the Outfit’s administration, according to sources. Whether Elmwood Park will even remain its own regime or be rolled into the Cicero crew is still up for debate, per these sources. Fratto is expected to replace 83-year old Marco (The Mover) D’Amico as the crime family’s consigliere soon these sources claim. D’Amico, the main advisor to Elmwood Park Outfit patriarchs the DiFronzo brothers, “Johnny No Nose” aka “Johnny Bananas” and “Greedy Petey,” is said to be semi-retired. Greedy Petey, 86, is pretty much completely retired, per sources. The legendary Johnny No Nose DiFronzo was the boss of the mafia in the Windy City for two and a half decades and died of natural causes in May 2018 at 89. The 75-year old Fratto has been in charge of Elmwood Park since around 2010 when Greedy Petey DiFronzo briefly went to the Outfit’s street boss post, per sources. Fratto is allegedly responsible for Outfit affairs in Iowa, Milwaukee and Cleveland. He did separate short federal prison stints for tax evasion (2010-2011) and bid-rigging on behalf of a forklift contractor at McCormick Place, Chicago’s premier convention center and the largest convention center in North America (2012-2013). The FBI considers Fratto a suspect in more than one gangland murder and believes he was made at the same Father’s Day 1988 ceremony as current Outfit boss Salvatore (Solly D) DeLaurentis. His father and uncle were both made men in the Chicago mob. Solly D is known for a hands-off leadership philosophy, much like the man he succeeded in DiFronzo. Upon Fratto getting the bump up to consigliere in the next year to 18 months, per sources, Elmwood Park skipper duties would be up for grabs between Alphonse (Maxwell Street Al) Mitria, Anthony (Tony D) Dote and Robert (Bobby the Truck Driver) Abbinanti. According to Chicago Crime Commission files, Dote has long been D’Amico’s right hand man and Abbinanti his top collector.
