John Linardi aka Chut (1908-1993) was a bit of a mafia enigma to the feds. The NY born mobster was listed in two families: Gambino and Lucchese, as a soldier. He did have a crime sheet that mentions narcotics violations, assault, robbery, homicide and policy. He was considered a bookie and policy operator and he was part of a large heroin distribution ring. Other mobsters he was associated with were: Patsy Pagano, Angelo Tuminaro, John Ormento, Tony Mirra and Sammy Santora.
