Intelligence Detective Gary Jenkins interviews Michael DiLeonardo and learns about his early history and how he got his famous nickname, Mikey Scars. Michael DiLeonardo, aka Mikey Scars, was a made man in the Gambino crime family. He was made by the Underboss, Sam the Bull Gravano. On the night that Mikey Scars was inducted into the Family, John Gotti Jr. was also inducted. John Gotti Sr. was now the boss after he had Paul Castellano murdered, so he thought it looked bad if he inducted his own son. I’m not sure who he thought he was fooling by having Gravano conduct this ceremony, but who knows the mind of a mobster?
