On April 14, 1903, a barrel with the body of a man came to New York on East 11th Street. The victim had his throat cut from ear to ear, and his head was almost detached from the trunk with eighteen stab wounds to the neck. The body had been compressed into the barrel with the head resting between the knees. The suspects of this murder, who were also arrested, were the most representative members of the Banda Morello, which was the first Mafia family in New York.
