John Gotti Jr is reportedly in the spotlight of the FBI after establishing close ties with the Latin Kings.

The gangster reportedly met bigwigs Michael ‘King Merlin’ Cecchetelli and the latter’s uncle David ‘Fat Chicky’ Cecchetelli ‘at a social club long used by the Genovese crime family.

He is also reportedly featured in several Instagram shots with the pair, as well as former MMA fighter named Damien ‘The Omen’ Trites.

Gotti Jr, who was the boss of the Gambino crime family in the 1990s, is said to have met the Cecchetelli couple at the Mount Carmel Social Club in Springfield, Massachusetts, according to the New York Daily News.

It has long been used as a social club by members of the Genovese crime family.

It is best known as the location for the gangland murder of Adolfo ‘Big Al’ Bruno, who was shot in the parking lot while leaving a card game in 2003.

David Cecchetelli is reportedly an employee of the Genovese crime family.

King Merlin was one of more than 60 members of the Latin Kings arrested last December on federal racketeering, drug and firearms charges.

“We believe that under Cecchetelli’s leadership, the Eastern region of the Latin Kings is currently structured, organized and administered as La Cosa Nostra,” said FBI Special Agent Joseph Bonavolonta at the time of the arrest.

He and other leaders led the kings with a mafia-like hierarchy, including a council of leaders and as many as eleven chapters in Massachusetts alone, authorities said.

The Latin Kings have also grown into the largest gang in Massachusetts prisons, with an estimated 400 members, including leaders charged with continuing to coordinate criminal activities outside of prison, authorities said.

Asked to confirm that Gotti was on the FBI’s radar, an FBI spokeswoman told New York Daily News that investigators would not comment “because of the ongoing investigation and the prosecution of the case.”

Gotti Jr became acting head of the Gambino crime family in 1992 to 1999 after his father John Gotti was sent to prison.

Gotti Jr himself was subsequently sent to prison in 1999 for racketeering.

In a shot played on the third of four extortion prosecutions he faced between 2004 and 2009, Gotti Jr claimed he was ‘pushed’ into a life of crime against his best judgment.

He said, “I’d rather be a Latin king than I am. I mean it on my father’s grave. I feel so ashamed. I feel so ashamed. ‘

All four trials in the 2000s ended in mistrials.

Last year, Gotti Jr demanded an apology from the police after gangster Francesco ‘Frankie Boy’ Cali’s alleged murderer was finally arrested and, contrary to rumors, his gangster uncle Gene Gotti was not behind the murder.

U.S. marshals arrested Anthony Comello, 24, and he is still charged with murder for killing Cali.

Cali, the 53-year-old boss of the infamous crime family Gambino, was murdered outside his home on Staten Island last March when he was hit by a six-bullet hail.

Police thought 72-year-old heroin dealer Gene Gotti was the man behind the murder and suspected he had committed the crime in a power move to take over the mob, as he was released from prison six months ago after 29 long years.

“An arrest was made today. A 24-year-old person who did it for personal reasons, not street reasons. Will anyone apologize to Gene and his family? Gotti Jr, 55, said to the New York Post.

“I wonder if these hugely insightful law enforcement officers are going to apologize to Gene Gotti,” he added.
