The distinction of being the first gangland victim of 1931 went to twenty-four year old Thomas Diorio. He had been released from the prison at Elmira a few months earlier after having served three years for robbery. Either late in the night of January 5 or the wee hours of the sixth he was taken for a ride and a bullet deposited in his head. A man walking to work would find his body at 5:30 am.

Thank you for the post. No, the site is far from dead. Have been busy with the Legs Diamond project so DGIS had to take a back seat for awhile. Plenty more to come so stick around pally.
