Sometimes in order to find the answer, you have to dig deep — literally.
That’s what the FBI was doing Tuesday in Long Island: Digging for the remains of a reputed Colombo mobster killed 15 years ago, the New York Daily News reports.
The paper reported that is looking for the remains of mobster Richard Greaves in an industrial park in East Farmingdale. Richard Kolko, an FBI spokesman, told the News that nothing was found and digging would likely resume Wednesday.
The Daily News reported that bones of another gangland murder victim, Colombo capo William (Wild Bill) Cutolo, were discovered at the site in 2008.
The paper reported that “Mob rat Joseph (Joey Caves) Competiello admitted participating in Greaves’ murder in August 1995. He told the feds that Greaves, suspected of being an informant, was lured to mobster Dino (Little Dino) Saracino’s home on 76th St. in Brooklyn and shot to death in the basement.”
