With all these theories and sometimes contradicting statements it's hard to believe what is true and what isn't.

Did the articles state who were Verduci and Montagna's enemies? Or only that those two had been working together before Verduci's death?

Here's at least one article that states:

During the fight to steal turf from Rizzuto, police say Verduci was part of a group that became involved with Sal Montagna, head of the Bonanno crime family of New York City.


As of now, the theory that Verduci was killed as part of a fued between the Figliomeni and Coluccio clans still seems the most viable to me.

If it was in any way linked to Rizzuto in Montreal, perhaps that than also means that Coluccio had good ties with the Rizzutos. It would make sense given the fact that Coluccio is the son-in-law of Bruzzese and was supposedly close with Joe [BadWord]. Something to think about.
