Anthony "Tony" Fava

Birth: unknown
Death: unknown, USA

"Casso built a beautiful home at 136 Bassett Avenue in Mill Basin, Brooklyn at a cost of over one million dollars. When the architect submitted his account, Casso simply avoided paying the bill by having the man murdered. The body of the victim -- Anthony Fava of Orange County, New York -- was found in a stolen car, in Brooklyn. He had been shot and stabbed, multiple times.

Casso at this time, was a fugitive from the law, following indictment in a racketeering case. Some sources claimed that Fava was killed not only because he had the temerity to bill Casso for his honest labour, but also because he had been carrying on an affair with Casso's wife, in his absence.

Then again he might have been killed because of his friendship with a capo in the family who had turned police informant, after he had been shot a dozen times, on the orders of Amuso and Casso. Most people having been hit that number of times, would have accepted the certainty of it and died..."
