Twenty-eight year old Mariano Bennedetto had been arrested in 1923 for a carrying a gun. Other than that we don't what he was involved in however it appears that eighty-one years ago today he was set up and killed by those he knew. Bennedetto walked up to an intersection in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn and stood around as if waiting for someone. A large sedan with two men pulled up and one of the guys jumped out and shot him four times killing him. The killers then escaped in the excitement that followed.
