In 1978 Boston was quite a different place. Organized crime had very little fear of the police or FBI, mostly because local gangsters had them on the payroll. On June 28, 1978 five bodies were discovered in the dank and dark basement of Blackfriars Pub. The bar was a constant hangout for both Italian and Irish organized crime. Investigators found $15,000 dollars in an unlocked safe, significant amounts of cocaine and marijuana were also present. Was this an organized crime hit or a robbery? Rumors swirled that $300,000 (1.2 million in today's money) in cocaine was taken and was for sale on the street within hours. Two men were arrested and tried for the grizzly homicides. They were not convicted at trial and the crime remains unsolved, police seem absolutely uninterested in pursuing this case on any level.
