Quote: Joe Valachi (1903-1971)


“You can imagine my embarrassment when I killed the wrong guy.”

Joe Valachi, US gangster, testifying in 1963 to a US Senate committee about the Mafia. The murder, carried out in prison in 1962, was with a pipe from a nearby construction site and was of a man, Joe Saupp, who Valachi had mistaken for a Mafia member by the name of Joseph DiPalermo.
