After the attempts on Vito Corleone's life was unsuccessful, the Corleone family enjoyed a brief peace. On New Year's Eve, 1945, several top enforcers including Paulie Gatto, Marty Malone and Aldo Trapani (as well as Sonny Corleone) attended a party at Rosa's, a flower shop that moonlighted as a brothel.

Party's overEdit

As the evening got on, the party was suddenly crashed by Police sergeant Joe Galtosino and his men, who were known to be under the thumb of the Tattaglia family. They beat up the Corleones and Galtosino took madame Rosa Morelli away for "interrogation".

A New Year's accidentEdit

Aldo Trapani managed to make his way out of the guarded brothel, stealthily executing several police officers along the way, before infiltrating Sicilian Imports Inc. where Rosa was being held. Reaching the roof, grappled with Galtosino before throwing the corrupt policeman to his death. Morelli dropped a bottle of spirits on the corpse, before remarking simply: "He was drunk, he fell. It was an accident."
