Also known as
Joseph "Joe Tuna" DiLeo (1981–2008) is an Enforcer to the Pegorino Family led by Jimmy Pegorino. He is 27 years old and his nickname is 'Tuna'. Joe DiLeo is a Soldier and close friend to Luca Silvestri. He is a waste collector for the bag of diamonds.
DiLeo, along with the other members of his sub-crew (
Luca Silvestri and Johnny Barbosa), were introduced in the mission Grand Theft Auto IV Taking in the Trash in which Ray sends Niko to assist them in picking up the Diamonds that Johnny Klebitz left in two Algonquin trashbags in the mission The Lost and Damned Diamonds in the Rough (which took place at the same time as the mission The Ballad of Gay Tony Frosting on the Cake). The foursome were ambushed by unidentified attackers (potentially Gay Tony associates), but escaped. After escaping, Dileo along with the other members betrayed Boccino and Bellic by taking the money for themselves; but Niko killed them and reclaimed the Diamonds for Ray.

After his death, his profile on the police database is not listed as deceased, but Luca and Johnny Barbosa are listed as deceased.
