Mafia Burials

The Mafia has used many methods to dispose of bodies over the years, including the obvious burial in a corn field and cement shoes. Here are some less well known ways the Mafia has disposed of bodies:

1. In 1974, FBI agents uncovered the body of mob informant Jimmy "The Snitch" Sesquano. He had been sealed in a 55 gallon drum of nuclear contaminants and stored in a toxic waste facility for almost 5 years before the material was to be transferred to a tank and the body was discovered. The nuclear waste had caused some strange mutations such as an additional hand growing off of his left hand.

2. In 1993, a massive explosion rocked the quiet suburb of Cicero, IL. Debris was scattered hundreds of feet in every direction. The police pieced together that mob associates Tony DiMico and Victor "The Snow Plow" Trelane had packed the corpse of an unknown victim into a 20 foot long, 3" steel walled pipe along with over 500 pounds of gunpowder. Trelane, a dropout of UIC had majored in physics and believed that this blast would have sufficient strength to blow the corpse into orbit where it could never be found. However, Trelane, who was not a materials science expert didn't realize the force of the blast was also sufficient to blast the bottom end cap off the massive pipe. There were no survivors.

3. In 1929, U.S. postal inspectors discovered the body of Antonio Scataglini stuffed inside a large clay vase. The vase had been addressed to Mafia boss Salvatore Macini in Sicily. It is not known whether the body was being sent as a threat, a gift, or simply as a way to dispose of it.

4. In 1999, an overpowering stench was reported at a grain silo in Milton, Ohio. DNA testing found blood belonging to Rickey "The Squealer" Botosi, an FBI informant in the witness protection program. It is theorized the Rickey The Squealer was thrown into the harvesting end of a combine and pulverized in the combines mechanisms.
