Authorities claim wiretaps prove that since Di Trapina was freed two years ago, she has worked her way up from being a lowly messenger to the boss and was liaising with other clans on the relaunch of the Cosa Nostra crime group.

In one recording, police claimed a suspected clan member referred to her as "the mistress of the house".

One informant told investigators "for all intents and purposes, she acts like a real man", according to court papers.
