William was a lieutenant in the Cosa Nostra. He also had control of the New Jersey operation that was made up of an "army" of sixty men. Near the end of his life, Moretti became a problem due to an advanced case of syphilis that made him senile..... ir also loosened his tongue. Vito Genovese ordered Moretti's execution and considered it a mercy killing.
