Wired.com is running a good article, about the Mafia’s claims at being able to dissolve a body in sulphuric acid within minutes.
From the article:
Police found tanks of acid in a Palermo hideout known as the “chamber of death,” where crime boss Filippo Marchese purportedly dissolved victims after torturing them in the early 1980s, said Filippo Cascino, another study co-author at the University of Palermo.
Informants had described the disposal method, the researchers say, with statements like, “We put the people in acid. In 15, 20 minutes they were no more — they became a liquid.”
Either way, whether the mafia did use acid or not… it’s got to be better than having your remains eaten by a pig, eh?
