The Moltisanti crew was one of the eight crews of the DiMeo crime family. Founded in 2006 by Christopher 'Chrissy' Moltisanti, the Moltisanti crew was an organised expansion of the Soprano crew. It was also known for being the youngest, having been the only crew founded in the 2000s. The crew became defunct in 2007 when Chrissy was murdered and the crew was then merged back with the Soprano crew.
Foundation and Chrissy's reign (2006-2007)Edit
The Moltisanti crew was founded in 2006 by Christopher 'Chrissy' Moltisanti. Chrissy was related to the Underboss's wife, the Underboss being Anthony 'Tony' Soprano. Chrissy was also Tony's protege and close friend, Tony sometimes describing Chrissy as the man he loved most in the world. Chrissy had been a loyal Associate to the Soprano crew throughout the 90s and later a Soldier as of 2001. In 2005 and 2006, however, there had been a massive influx of new mobsters in the family, and the Soprano crew was decidedly split in two. Tony, chose Chrissy as Capo of the new crew. The crew was made up of Chrissy's closest friends, who were all young, bright mobsters. The crew was commonly used as a physical tool, in terms of interrogation and threatening, due to their young, strong members. However, Chrissy was known to all to be a strong drug addict, known as one of his major downfalls. This angered Tony especially, since he wanted Chrissy to be protected and to not take his eye off the ball. Chrissy soon proved to be a pretty useless Capo, constantly high on drugs and acting like a junkie. In 2007, after a meeting with Lupertazzi crime family Boss (Philip 'Phil' Leotardo) and Underboss (Butch 'Butchie' DeConcini), Tony and Chrissy drove home. Unknown to Tony at first, Chrissy was high on drugs and managed to flip the car off the side of the road, trashing it. Tony, when he had worked why Chrissy had crashed, felt that Chrissy was a disgrace to the family, expressing himself in an awful way and, ultimately, depicting himself as an incapable leader. Tony therefore suffocated Chrissy, subsequently killing him. When the ambulance arrived, it simply looked like Chrissy had died in the crash. After Chrissy's death, Tony saw no possible future for the Moltisanti crew since, although the crew was by far the most active, it didn't have any great would be leaders in it. Therefore Tony merged it back with the Soprano crew, and the Moltisanti crew was history.
