Biography EditAmerigo Bussetta was born in Marsala, Sicily, to poor parents. As a young man, he began to murder for money, and became renowned for his assassination skills. He became an associate of the Tommasino crime family in the early 1900s, and became an enforcer in the Corleone family when Michael Corleone brought him to America after his exile in Sicily, and he later hired him to protect him during the course of the Miami Conflict.
He headed to Cuba with Corleone, and was assigned to murder Hyman Roth on New Years' Eve. He killed his capo Johnny Ola with a hanger, but failed to smother Roth with a pillow, as the Cuban police burst into the room and shot Busseta three times in the chest and once in the forehead, murdering him.
