Top O' the Mournin'
And mourning on St. Patrick's Day back in 1912 was what Ignacio Scrivani's clan was doing after the aforementioned lad was found in an empty lot with twenty deep stab wounds and a stilleto sticking out of his neck. Ignacio O'Scrivani (everyone wants to be Irish on St. Patty's Day) was a burglar who was regularly in police custody but rarely convicted although a number of his associates ended up behind bars. Therefore police believe that squealing was the motive behind his murder. Police said that he had been killed in another part of the city and then dumped in the lot. Afterwards the killers went out for some corned beef and cabbage which they washed down with a few pints of green beer.
