Italian mafia boss ‘fed alive to pigs’--- Police believe Francesco Raccosta was kidnapped......
nydailynews ^ | Nov. 28, 2013 | By Lee Moran

Posted on 12/29/2013 6:21:23 AM PST by dennisw

Police believe Francesco Raccosta - who disappeared from his home in Calabria back in 2012 - was kidnapped by rival mobsters and fed alive to a herd of pigs.

Francesco Raccosta, who vanished without a trace from his home in Calabria in March 2012, is now believed to have been kidnapped by opposition mobsters.

They then severely beat him before throwing him into a herd of pigs - who swiftly ate his body as he screamed and begged for mercy.

Cops say they found out about his fate earlier this month while investigating the southern 'Ndrangheta mafia organization.

Officers claim 24-year-old Simone Pepe was wire-tapped boasting about Raccosta's murder.

"It was satisfying to hear his screams. Mamma mia how he screamed!...In the end I didn't see anything...nothing remained!" The Local reports Pepe as gloating.

Il Fatto Quotidiano reports that the murder was said to be revenge for Raccosta killing another mafia boss.

The feud between the two clans dated back to the 1950s, it added.

Mafia’s dumping of toxic waste blamed for high cancer rates in Italy
Cancer rates have increased 47% for men and 40% for women in the areas around Naples and Pompeii thanks to illegal disposal by Mafia-controlled companies that occurred during a 20-year period, in which the harmful substances were dumped into lakes, farmland, quarries and caves.

I saw a semi-documentary about that. These people have nothing noble in their natures, they are scum. There ain’t no Don Corleone characters in the mob.

Sounds so typically Calabrese. The Ndrangheta are as brutal as their Sicilian cousins. And they have the Camorra in Naples.

Always so nice to hear news from home. When I was graduating college, I remember hearing that essentially all the male 17-18 year old teenagers there in my home town were dead due to mafia infighting.

Eternal damnation begins early for some, later for others. At least they all die for a noble cause and the good of their appreciative brethren.

OMG! This is horrible! Texas has a lot of feral hogs. When I was little in the 40’s we would visit my mothers relatives, some lived on farms out in the country.

I remember they would never let me go outside alone because they told me the “hogs would eat me”.

I guess they were not kidding.

Back in 1957-58-59 or whatever, we had an old man who lived in home about two miles from ours. We hadn’t seen him for days, so my Dad called the authorities, figuring he had died inside. Here comes the State police and VFD. No body inside, no signs of struggle and the back door was unlocked. A cursory inspection of the barn was made(Sam! You in here? Sam!. Figuring he went for a walk everybody began searching the fields and woods around the place. My Dad didn’t want me along because of what they might find. The chickens were making a heck of a fuss so he told me to feed the chickens, throw the two old dairy cows some hay and he’d be back. As I was doing this I walked by the pig (hog) sty and looked in because the 20 or 30 hogs were outside at the back of the barn. I ran into the woods and told Dad and BFD Chief that I found Sam’s hat and his bibs. They asked ‘Where?” I said “in the hog pen”. Search ended.

Ha. My mothers father was born in Salerno (napolitano). Married my Irish/Scott/English grandmother. My dad’s father was napolitano/ his mom Calabrese. We inhabited the Bronx till I was 15 in ‘65. Went from the whole city mentality to AMERICA in short order. What I didn’t know about what this country was about, because of living in Tameny Hall run New York City could have filled a library.

Good to reminisce about the good things as a kid in a NYC italian neighborhood. But glad to be out.

As we used to say in polite company...

“Departed to defecate and the swine devoured him.”

Or is crude company...
“Went to s... and the hogs ate him.”

We get rid of our debris by backing up a wood chipper to a catfish pond. Best to freeze first. Catfish gullets will dissolve anything and no trace will be left behind.

Very likely only bone shards. Hogs are ruthless, as are chickens, when tasting blood.

Brick Top approves, though he appears to generally use this method to dispose of the body, not for the actual murder.

John Wayne - True Grit (the best version)
You testified you backed away from old man Wharton.
- Yes, sir. - Which direction?

Backward! I always go backward when I’m backing away!

I appreciate the humour of that remark.
Aaron Wharton was standing by a pot when you arrived?

More like squatting. He was stirring the fire under the pot.

- How far did you back away? - Six, eight steps.

Meaning Wharton advanced the same distance? Six or eight steps?
- Sixteen feet?
- Something like that.

Then explain why the body was found by the wash pot, one arm in the flames, the sleeve and hand smouldering.

Them hogs! They may have moved the body.

Hey the Irish joked about what county they came from
The Germans didn’t joke at all LOL
The Italians gave each sh*t about region they
came from
Calabrese —capitosto stubborn (as opposed to stupid)
Sicilian — jealous always carried a knife
Napoletane —either cooking or singing (or both at th same time
Northerner —just that they were stuck up
Actually the only northerners I knew were Genoese
who in New York were the ladies who cleaned the offices
before the Polish & Eastern European ladies cornered the market. There cooking was different, but I kind of like polenta.

Maybe that is why when I went to boot camp in 1962 some of the boys from Texas would say things like, “That’s the most fun I’ve had since the hogs ate my sister.”

LOL! I can believe they said that. Whenever I would ask my teen age east Texas cousins where my aunt was they would always reply “she went to poop and the hogs ‘et ‘er”. Only they didn't say poop. :)

There were so many feral hogs up there that when we visited they would never let me go outside alone. So I guess someones sister was eaten by hogs!
