The case of the murder of the barrel passed to Detective Sergeant Arthur Carey. He was the first investigator with experience in homicide cases to conduct the investigation. The sergeant advanced a hypothesis, namely that he was an Italian and that the murder was probably linked to one of the many feuds that took place in Little Italy. For that case, the intervention of the only policeman that the New York Police Department could have successfully investigated, namely Sergeant Joe Petrosino, was required. Following the reading of the newspaper, a character that we have now learned to know and observe has an important clue for the identification of the corpse found inside the barrel. It was the head of the New York Secret Service, the stubborn and brilliant investigator William Flynn.
