What a way to die!

A group of Calabrian mafia assassins beat a rival with a spade and fed him alive to pigs, Italian police say. They have been rounding up 20 people for various mob crimes including five murders.
The murder probably took place in March 2012 when Francesco Raccosta disappeared, but his body has never been found, the court in the southern city of Reggio Calabria said in a statement.
Investigators arrested one of Raccosta’s suspected assassins after they captured him bragging about the hit in a telephone wiretap.
“It was such a pleasure to hear him scream,” the suspect said. “In my opinion, there’s nothing left of him … This pig can really eat!”
