In September 1986, some gunmen made an attempt on Anthony “Gaspipe” Casso’s life. In December, “Gaspipe” directed NYPD detectives Louis Eppolito and Stephen Caracappa to use the police computer to obtain the address and photo of a guy named Nicholas Guido, a person of interest in the attempted hit. Eppolito wanted more money, another $4,000 for their services. Casso declined and decided to search for Guido himself. After locating a Nicholas Guido in Brooklyn, Casso sent a hit man and ended the man’s life, the wrong man. This Guido, a telephone installer, merely had the same name as the targeted, still-living mobster, Nicholas Guido. If Casso had hired Eppolito and Caracappa, they would have “gotten the right Nicky Guido.”
