In Mafia mythology, the mob made sure a victim slept with the fishes by placing their feet in cement blocks. A member of Bobby Shmurda’s GS9 crew suffered this horrid fate.
The body of 28-year-old Peter “Petey Crack” Martinez was found washed ashore on Manhattan Beach on Monday, May 2, according to DNAinfo. His body was wrapped in plastic bags with duct tape on his face and 100 pounds of cement covering his feet.
His arms were bound behind him with rope, according to the Daily Beast.
Martinez was missing for three weeks before a Kingsborough Community College student discovered his body on the Brooklyn shoreline.
A police commander told the Daily Beast he’s never seen cement overshoes before and wondered aloud if it was the work of the Mafia.
A detective dismissed the theory, saying the mafia does a better job at it than the perpetrators did.
It was a botched cement job because air got in, causing Martinez to float to the surfaced of the water, officials told DNainfo.
Martinez, who was reported missing on Feb. 5, was a high-ranking member of the G Stone Crips.
Detectives were amazed that his braids were in near perfect condition at the time his body was discovered.
“His hair is perfectly braided still,” the commander told Daily Beast. “It’s like he just stepped out of the salon. His fingers fell off, but his hair is beautiful still.”
Authorities believe Martinez was alive when he was thrown into the wate
