After killing 19 people, including his most close acquaintance and his brother-in-law, Salvatore “Sammy the Bull”, Gravano is undoubtedly among the top famous hitmen in the history of the mafia. This is why, as he opens about his involvement as a notorious Gambino crime family member in ‘Truth and Lies The Last Gangster, we get a real look at how they gained power and control. However, if you’re looking for more information about his ex-wife Debra Scibetta – including specifics regarding their relationships, her possible involvement within the criminal gang, crimes and whereabouts we’ve got your back.
How is Debra Scibetta?
Born as the third child of immigrants from the first generation, Debra Scibetta grew up in Bensonhurst, Brooklyn, New York (like her soon-to-be husband) and was unaware that it would take her on a completely unexpected road. In all likelihood, she got married to Sammy Gravano in 1971 and happily welcomed two children, Gerard and Karen, the twins Karen and Gerard, to their lives and then lost her sole twin brother Nicholas “Little Nicky” Scibetta in the year 1978. The most shocking thing, however, is that she was unaware of her husband’s involvement in the horrific incident until the mid-90s, and that’s when they were split up.

Debra was divorced when Sammy was admitted to the US national witness protection system, which led to their split in 1996. However, despite being concerned that only Nick’s dismembered leg was discovered, she moved nine miles from her ex’s house situated in Tempe, Arizona — apparently for their children. This was the time (in the latter part of 1990) she was believed to have been associated with the clan’s criminal activities that ended with the Gravano’s, as well as more than 40 others in the arrest of federal and state-level criminal charges of drug possession in February of 2000.
Is Debra Scibetta?
As a result of her participation in the multi-million dollar ecstasy rings that operated across Arizona up to New York, Debra Scibetta admitted to operating an organization illegally in 2001 and was sentenced to probation for several years. After that, it appears like she’s decided to avoid the spotlight to concentrate on her family and her private life.

Debra opened an eatery prior to her arrest. She ran the restaurant along with the child Gerard at least for a short period, but it seems that it’s been closed or changed hands. So, the only thing we know about their ex-wife of Sammy is that she is currently believed to reside in Phoenix, Arizona, where she’s content in the company of her grandkids and children.
