Legendary mob boss John Gotti, 59, is suffering with aggressive and deadly throat cancer, reports New York's Daily News. Two years ago Gotti, currently serving a life-sentence for racketeering and murder, had a tumor removed from the back of his throat, says the paper. It also reports that on Sept. 13 Gotti was removed from the maximum-security federal prison in Marion, Ill., and put into a prison hospital in Springfield, Mo. Gotti's daughter, novelist Victoria Gotti, was tightlipped with the News. "I don't want to give any comment," she said, "because one comment leads to another comment to another."
