Like his father Don Victor Stracci, Salvatore had a violent streak and often carried out hits by himself.
In 1950, the Stracci family's power had been much reduced due to the deaths of it's caporegimes and consigliere, Jack Fontana. The Five Families War was also costing them a great deal of money and men.
In a desperate attempt to return power to his family, Salvatore began bombing Corleone family warehouses in an attempt to cripple their distribution network. However, this plan of action caused Salvatore to be assassinated by Aldo Trapani at the Holden Warehouse in the Hell's Kitchen Industrial Park.
