Frank Cullotta, 81, died in a Las Vegas hospital Thursday morning, suffering from “various illnesses, including COVID-19,” according to the ABC affiliate.
Cullotta is a Chicago native who moved to Las Vegas in the 1970s. He is a childhood friend and right hand man of Anthony “The Ant” Spilotro, a famous Las Vegas mobster played by Joe Pesci in the 1995 film Casino Martin Scorsese. The duo moved to Las Vegas around the same time as visiting WadukPkv.
When he arrived at Sin City, Cullotta formed a group of criminals known as the “Hole in the Wall Gang”. They carried out city-wide robberies and got their name because of their tendency to drill in walls and ceilings to gain access to businesses and residences without setting off the alarm.
Cullotta and his gang go on a robbery, while Spilotro takes over. Finally, one of the robbers gets Cullotta under arrest and triggers fears that she will be the target of an attack by Spilotro.
Cullotta decided to enter witness protection and testify against his old friend. He requested his release from witness protection several years after Spilotro was murdered by a mob in 1986.
After his release, Cullotta embraced his mafia roots and made a career out of it. According to Deadline’s report, Cullotta served as a consultant for the film Scorsese and even appeared as a hitman at the end of the film. He created his own YouTube channel documenting mass influence in Las Vegas and creating the “Vegas Mob Tour”.
