Supected Mobster Shot to Death

Friends of ours: Rudolph Izzi, Robert DeCicco, Genovese Crime Family, Gambino Crime Family

A man suspected of being connected to the Mafia was found shot to death in an apartment where someone had kicked in the door, police said.

Officers discovered the body of Rudolph Izzi, 74, at about 2:30 p.m. Thursday on a bed inside his Brooklyn apartment. He had been shot in the head.

Izzi was the victim of a pistol-whipping by an unidentified man in his home in 2001, when news reports identified him as a reputed soldier in the Genovese organized crime family.

Police said there was no immediate evidence that the slaying was connected to the shooting on Tuesday of another reputed mobster outside a social club run by his father in the same Brooklyn neighborhood. In that case, Robert DeCicco, son of a notorious captain in the Gambino crime family, was shot four times as he sat in his car near the club, officials said. There were no arrests.
