THE MURDER TRUST ($150,000 – $250,000)

In January 1933, five friends came up with a wicked plan. With the help of a crooked insurance agent, they purchased a life insurance policy on Michael Malloy – a homeless, alcoholic.

Tony Marino, a tavern owner, offered Malloy an unlimited tab, banking on the idea Malloy would drink himself to death and the 5 friends (later dubbed The Murder Trust), would cash-in on the life insurance policy.

Malloy seized the opportunity to drink, from sunrise to sunset – and returned every single day, to do it again.

Growing increasingly impatient, Marino swapped the liquor with antifreeze, then turpentine, then horse liniment and finally … rat poison. But Michael Malloy just kept on drinking – completely unfazed!

In desperation, the men tried feeding Malloy a plate of raw oysters, soaked in wood alcohol and a sandwich of spoiled sardines, mixed with poison & steel shavings. Malloy ended up asking for a second helping!

They tried freezing him to death and running him over with a car – yet Malloy survived.

On February 23, 1933, after a full day of drinking, Malloy passed out. The five men then carried him to a room, put a hose in his mouth (connected to a gas jet) … and Malloy died, within the hour.

Dr. Frank Manzella pronounced Malloy’s death a result of ‘lobar pneumonia’ and his body was swiftly buried. Police quickly heard rumors and ordered Malloy’s body be exhumed and examined.

Long story short, the men were aptly convicted of murder, and the “good doctor” was held as an accessory after the fact. One of the men went to prison while the remaining four booked their date with the electric chair!
