Eugene "Nick the Blade" Gesuale, a degenerate narco from the Pittsburgh Mafia, died at 73 from a heart attack while getting sloshed at Florida bar as reported by The Daytona Beach News-Journal: "Gesuale . . . was released from federal prison in October 2014 after serving 24 years for racketeering and drug trafficking," and was "the Pittsburgh connection" referenced in the film Goodfellas about Henry Hill's cocaine dealing. In 1985 federal prosecutor Jeffrey Manning described Eugene Gesuale as "a hustler, a gambler, a spendthrift, a man with a violent temper, a drug dealer, and a man with expensive taste." In short, he was a gangster.
