FBI Agents Give Up Digging For Mob Victims on Long Island

After getting lucky last year and digging up the body of a mobster in East Farmingdale on Long Island, the FBI recently returned with excavation equipment to try its luck again.

Apparently luck wasn’t on the agents’ side this time.

After three days of digging this past week, the FBI mid-week gave up on trying to recover the bodies of two men believed to be victims of mob hits.

Newsday reported that the digging was the result of an informant’s tip that the area was used by the Colombo crime family in the 1990s as a mob cemetery. The paper reported that the informant said  three bodies were buried in the area.

FBI spokesman James Margolin told the paper that because one of the three bodies was recovered in October in the area: “We believe that the information was accurate.”

Margolin said it was unclear if digging would resume.
