Mob hit investigation moves to Brooklyn

November 18, 2008 3:18:23 PM PST
Federal law enforcement officials were searching a site in Brooklyn for evidence on Tuesday. The search was believed to be part of the investigation that led the FBI to an industrial park in East Farmingdale last month.

Agents may not be looking specifically for bodies at the Brooklyn site, but instead for evidence in connection with the deaths of two suspected Mafia hit victims.

The body of Colombo capo William "Wild Bill" Cutolo was dug up at the East Farmingdale site.

Agents continue to look for two other victims, and evidence connected to their deaths.

Cutolo vanished in 1999 during a decade-long war between two factions of the crime family.

Mob turncoat Joseph "Joey Caves" Competiello tipped off investigators to the Farmingdale location and possibly to the Brooklyn location.

Authorities are still looking for the bodies of Richard Greaves and Carmine Gargano Jr., a Pace University student who disappeared in 1994.
