    I love your podcasts as soon as I get my password for my phone fixed (Apple Stores closed) ill get set up with Venmo in APP store.

    I have a question? Why are in a lot of mob murders are victims put in the trunks of there cars?

    • Gary Jenkins Apr 20, 2020

      I believe that mobsters end up in trunks because they will be killed in one place and then moved to another. Just check out GoodFellas for example. They have often been left in the trunk because it is the victim’s car or a stolen car and no use in taking a chance of moving the body again. This is in cases where they want the body found as a sign to others.
