Joe Barboza was one of the most fearsome mob killers of the 1960s. He had a falling-out with his gang leaders in 1966, and while he was in jail on a gun charge, they began killing off his little East Boston crew. He turned informer in 1967, went into the Witness Protection Program, and relocated to California. He was murdered by Boston Mafia "capo" J. R. Russo in San Francisco in 1976.
