Vincent Gigante

Vincent "The Chin" Gigante (March 29, 1928 – December 19, 2005) was a New York mobster who headed the Genovese crime family. Vincent "The Chin" was one of five brothers; himself, Mario, Pasquale and Ralph all became mobsters in the Genovese family. Only one brother, Louis, did not become a Genovese mobster and instead became a priest. Dubbed "the Oddfather," by the press, Gigante often wandered the streets of Greenwich Village, Manhattan in his bathrobe and slippers, mumbling incoherently to himself, in what police characterized as an elaborate act.
