Mobster 'Fed Alive to Pigs'

There are fates worse than sleeping with the fishes. Police in Italy believe a Mafia boss who disappeared last year was kidnapped by a rival clan who beat him with metal bars before feeding to a herd of pigs who devoured him as he screamed for mercy, the Telegraph reports. "It was satisfying to hear him scream," a gangster said in a phone call intercepted by police. "Nothing remained at all. I said, wow, how a pig can eat!"
