On this day in 1946 Salvatore Contorno was born, also known as Totuccio. He is a former member of the Sicilian Mafia who turned state witness in October 1984, following the example of Tommaso Buscetta. He gave detailed accounts of the inner-workings of the Sicilian Mafia and his testimonies were crucial in both the Maxi Trial and the Pizza Connection trial.
Despite turning into a police informant Totuccio still had Mafia blood in him, extorting and dealing, and he also survived several bomb plots in the 1990’s from the Coreonesi.
