I am in Northern New Jersey quite often (about 25 years) I have family that has lived there for 60 years... as a matter of fact I stay in the Meadowlands when I go. Newark is by far much worse now than it was back then. Because of all of the gangs etc. You can't even drive down the streets there at night without bullets flying. I have been there many times and it's the ghetto. It's not renovated at all. The Mob would NOT hire a black person to work for them. I know this first hand They could have dumped their bodies in Hudson County. Bergan County is some what nicer. Jersey City is also in Hudson County. I don't think the police worried too much about this case because they were black. People there were a lot more prejudice and they still are. I have a good friend that got killed in Newark years ago. He owned a college book store there. They never robbed him. They shot him execution style. We will never know why either.
