Gagliano was awarded the old Reina organization, with Lucchese as his underboss.
For most of its history, the Lucchese family was reckoned as one of the most peaceful crime families in the nation.
However, that changed when Corallo named Victor Amuso his successor shortly before going to prison.
Amuso was arrested in 1991 and sentenced to life in prison.
Several Lucchese wiseguys, fearing for their lives, turned informant.
Testimony from these informants nearly destroyed the family, with as many as half of its members incarcerated.
