First murder of a boss in NY since Gotti orchestrated the hit on Paul Castellano in 1986. From all accounts Cali was well respected and kept a low profile. He was connected to the Sicilian mafia as a top drug importer.

Several theories have emerged including (what I think is less likely) that Gene Gotti was released from prison yesterday and some think this is his way of emulating his brother by taking out the acting boss to gain control.

Another being that he could have potentially been tied to the $77million cocaine bust last week in NY. If this was Sicilian controlled drugs, they would not hesitate to kill him over the loss. (On a side note, his Sicilian connection would mean retaliation if this was in fact an unsanctioned hit)

Another theory is retaliation for the murder of a Bonnano Family capo a month or so ago. That hit was reportedly retaliation for a previous murder. If this is the case, there could be a war starting among the families, breaking a Commission sanction on no more public killings that was decided in the past decade (presumably as law enforcement tools got better and crimes being solved more easily).

Turns out it was a 24 yo man that was interested in Frank Cali’s niece. Cali had previously told the guy to stay away from her.
