Crime Figure. Anthony Spilotro, nicknamed "The Ant," was well known for his involvement in organized crime in the 1970s and 1980s. Spilotro was the model for Joe Pesci's character, Nicky Santoro, in the Martin Scorsese film "Casino," starring Robert De Niro and Sharon Stone. In June, 1986, he and his brother Michael Spilotro were victims of a gangland-style slaying and were buried in an Indiana cornfield. An autopsy performed on their severely beaten bodies, identifiable only through dental records, recovered sand in the Spilotro brothers' lungs, evidencing that they were buried alive.
