The FBI plans to resume digging in a Long Island field used by mobsters as a burial ground. FBI spokesman James Margolin said agents plan to bring in heavy excavation equipment to search for two victims of mob hits believed to buried in the East Farmingdale industrial park.

Authorities suspect mobsters buried former Pace University student Carmine Gargano Jr., in the wooded area. He was believed to have been killed in a revenge plot targeting his cousin, a member of a rival crime family.

Authorities also suspect Colombo associate Richard Greaves may be buried at the site. He was killed in 1995 because bosses feared he might become an informant.

In October, agents dug up the decomposed remains of Colombo underboss William Cutolo. Mob leaders Alphonse Persico and John DeRoss were recently sentenced to life in prison for their role in the 1999 Cutolo killing.
