Loose lips sink snitch


One hundred years ago today Joseph Randazzo was found in an east side saloon with twenty-two stab wounds. Coincidentally (or not) Mr. Randazzo had supplied the police with some information regarding a couple of drug dealers. Police raided the apartment of James Di Lorenzo, said to be the city's top cocaine dealer, and arrested both him and his brother in-law John Gravino, who had a history of selling opium. The former was released on bail. Which leads us back to the east side saloon and twenty-two stab wounds. Police did not feel that it was a coincidence.
