About Ralph Natale

Posted: September 02, 2011

RALPH NATALE was head of the Philadelphia mob from 1994 to 1999, when he was busted on drug charges.

* Many believe that Natale, 76, was a figurehead boss, and that Joseph "Skinny Joey" Merlino actually had the power.

* Natale, the first sitting mob boss to testify against his own crime family, finished an 11-year prison term in May and is working on a tell-all memoir that has caught the attention of federal investigators.

* The Daily News is not disclosing where he is living because we don't want Ralphy's blood on our hands if he gets whacked.
