The location where the Spilotro brothers were murdered

This is the location where the mob murdered Anthony and Michael Spilotro.

It is situated at 17W101 Bryn Mawr Avenue in Bensenville, Illinois.

These days, it is an empty lot, as the property was torn down in 2022.

Although Anthony and Michael Spilotro were both members of the Chicago Outfit, Michael was not a made man. Instead, he was just an "associate".

On June 14th, 1986, the brothers were invited to a basement in this house in Bensenville. When they received the invitation, they presumed that they were attending an initiation ceremony and that Michael was finally going to become a made man.

Of course, this is what their killers wanted them to believe.

When the pair arrived at this address and walked down into the basement, a group of men tackled Michael to the ground, placed a rope around his neck, and then removed a revolver that he had in his jacket.

Realizing that one of the bosses of the family had ordered their deaths, Anthony reportedly asked his killers if he could say a prayer.

Moments later, the Spilotro brothers were beaten to death with baseball bats.

Afterwards, they were stripped to their underwear and then buried in a rural cornfield near Enos, Indiana.

At the time of the murders, the house was reportedly owned by the brother-in-law of Lee Magnafichi, who was a mobster in the Chicago Outfit.
