RIP: Colombo Mobster Joe Legs, Who Helped "Clear Path" for Vic Orena

Joseph (Joe Legs) Legrano, a Colombo soldier serving life for murder -- and a "(l)oving family man" -- died on October 3 at age 75, according to the BOP.

Joe Legs participated in the murder that put Orena on top.

Legrano and Dennis (Fat Dennie) DeLucia, also a soldier as per federal prosecutors, were convicted for the 1988 murder of former Colombo crime family consigliere Vincent (Jimmy) Angelino, a slaying later considered to be a precursor to the Colombo war, which formally commenced three years later.





Angelino allegedly was vying for the acting boss slot when he was killed, clearing the path for Vittorio (Little Vic) Orena to move into the position. The war commenced when  Orena sought to make his position permanent

Specifically, DeLucia was the wheelman and Legrano wrapped the body after the hit, prosecutors said.
