Martinez had a long arrest record that details 31 arrests. Also, he “owed a lot of money,” his girlfriend was quoted by the Daily News telling investigators.
Peter Martinez “owed a lot of money,”


He was identified; the cause of death was not. And it would seem this wasn't a gangland hit at all, despite the manner in which the body was found.

Peter Martinez was 28. He was found with his hands tied behind his back and his feet buried in cement, the proverbial cement shoes, after he washed up on shore near Brooklyn's Oriental Blvd. wrapped in a black plastic big. This past Monday, at about 10:30 a.m., a student at Manhattan Beach Community College spotted Martinez’s body.

Seriously! Body Found Wearing Cement Shoes -- in Brooklyn

The body wearing cement shoes was found on Monday morning along a Brooklyn beach.
This is not the picture of the man found; it's debatable if this pic is even real. I just posted it for the story.

UPDATED, VICTIM "TENTATIVELY" IDENTIFIED: With his arms tied behind his back, a man's body was found wrapped in black plastic bags and literally wearing a pair of cement shoes --meaning his feet were buried in concrete.

The body was found on Monday morning along a Brooklyn beach, according to news reports.

The body's description comes straight from the mouth of the Brooklyn Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce.

Wives Added to 2014 Indictment of NJ-Based Genovese Crew

Tuzzo is a well-established ranking member of the Genovese crime family promoted when Vincent "The Chin" Gigante assumed power in the 1980s after Philip "Benny Squint" Lombardo (October 6, 1908 in New York City – April 1987) retired.
Genovese capo, charged again.....

REVISED, UPDATED, EXPANDED
They are accused of running a multi-million-dollar criminal enterprise described as "a smorgasbord of mob schemes" from October 2007 through to April 2016, according to the acting state Attorney General.

The indictment, an updated version of two-year-old charges, includes members and associates of a New Jersey-based Genovese crew operated under capo Charles "Chuckie" Tuzzo, 82, of Bayside, Queens, and soldier Vito Alberti, 57, of Morristown, who reported to the New York bosses. Also additional members and associates were involved in these crimes but are not named in the indictment.

And we read all about it in 2014. All that is new is the addition of more people -- raising the total number of the indicted from 11 to 14. Basically the updated version of the indictment includes an additional defendant charged in connection with drug-money laundering; also the wives of three of the defendants were charged with tax fraud.

Nicky Slick Says Something Stinks in Philadelphia

By Nick Christophers

[Editor's note: new information was added to this story, so I am reposting it to be on this blog's front page.]

This story is based on research supplemented by official court documents provided by Nicodemo "Nicky Slick" DiPietro, described in news reports as a Philadelphia mob street soldier. Some names are not included as Nicky Slick never informed and is serving a life sentence for murder.

 Nick Christophers wrote this as an advocate of "Nicky Slick." After researching the case, he wants to expose the truth.


The Philadelphia mob was in upheaval for many years following the murder of then-boss Angelo Bruno. Before a shotgun ended Bruno, he ran the city's underworld in relative calm for over 20 years. Bruno resorted to violence, or its threat, if absolutely necessary. But he tried to avoid the attention of the authorities at all costs. One of his famous sayings was "make money not headlines!"

Nicknamed the "Docile Don" due to his emphasis on negotiating versus bloodshed, Angelo Bruno also sat on the powerful Mafia Commission and was tight with New York's most powerful boss, Carlo Gambino.
