“The Mafia probably killed 1/4 of the people they say they killed.”

I’d be curious about the actual numbers.

I’ve read that mob-related killings in Chicago over the 20th century numbered between 1,000 and 3,000. Not surprisingly, prosecutions were brought for only a couple of dozen of them. No doubt the numbers for New York and New Jersey would be at least comparable to Chicagoland’s if not higher.

Several mobsters pointed out burial grounds but they usually found a fraction of the number alleged to be buried there.
