These photos give a glimpse of some of the most notorious killings from the 20th century in New York City. Victims stuffed in suitcases, sprawled on the streets, thrown in the trash, and the corpses are surrounded by crowds of detectives in trench coats and fedoras without any thought for crime scene contamination. Crime scene photographs play an important role in investigations and documenting history. The victims of these ruthless killings were mostly mobsters and gang members. These photographs are vicious and haunting, but they also depict the dark history of organized crimes.
