  1. The Francesco Anniballi murder case of January 29, 1992, was the biggest case in Mafia history. So basically, Frankie owed the mob some money and since he was no longer acting, they figured that he would just loan them the dough. But what they failed to realize was that Frankie wasn't gonna them a cent. And when they found out that Frankie wasn't giving them anything, they sent two guys to his home with .357 Magnum revolvers and ski masks. When Frankie opened the door, he was shot 9 times, killing him instantly. His wife couldn't even afford a decent casket. He died at 51 years old with little to no money left to support his family. What a shame.
