How to Become a Bounty Hunter



Boston Mobster Enrico Ponzo Became “Remade” Man as Rancher in Idaho

When a wide-ranging indictment came down against him and 14 others in 1997, Mr. Ponzo was charged with crimes that included attempted murder and extortion. But he was also listed as the target of a contract killing planned by one of the other defendants.
