“Murder & Mayhem on Staten Island”



The excitement and vibrancy of big-city thrills take a deadly turn when they hit Staten Island. Edward Reinhardt murdered his wife and rolled her body in a barrel down a busy thoroughfare. A known bootlegger—and suspected police informant—was found shot three times in a Packard on South Beach, sparking one of the island’s greatest mysteries. In 1843, the bodies of a mother and daughter were discovered in a Christmas Day fire; a family member would stand trial three times for their deaths. During the Jazz Age, a kiss would cost a popular Port Richmond teenager her life. Meticulously researched, these twelve murders from Staten Island’s past, some well known and others long forgotten, are documented.
